Well this Snow is going to stick and stay till spring. Just a little bit coming down but begining to look alot like Chrismas outside now. Might have to move a couple of things around just incase. This is looking out my window where the computer is. Mark H.

Looks like you have had a bunch of that heavy condensing fog like we have. Temperature wise, it has been very mild this Fall, except for that cold snap around Halloween. But we have not had much of any snow around Spokane and only a little rain. I think there has been enough for the winter wheat Fall growth, but I am concerned with the overall dryness.

I need to do some brushpile burning of old logging slash on my property. Even with a DNR permit, I have not done it yet as I am worried about the possibility of a fire getting away in the still fairly dry forested area. And now I have heard there is a burn ban on because of the poor air quality. They don't even want people to burn wood stoves unless that is their sole source of heat. I have the piles tarped, so I guess I will do them in January or February.

I really don't like snow much, but we really need moisture any way we can get it. At least anything that falls is soaking in. The creeks are still way down. Hope we get something soon, or next years fire season will be real scary.

Good luck. I sure enjoy your photos of your pretty little corner of the world. Nice area.

Yeah i noticed from the chicken coop you have more snow than us (if it's this years). Glad you're getting some moisture out there. Here's a new Christmas song to pass the time - i'll post it directly so it's easier to copy and stuff. :)

With only 2.47 inches of rain this year the snow will be the only thing that will fill my lake back up and replenish the aquifer around here. I hope we at least get 4 ft then I will have my 12 ac lake back on my place. We have had a drought for the last 5 years and we realy need a good snow fall!! I want my lake back in front of the house so it looks like this again! Mark H.

Multiply the trees by 1000 and that could be Oregon (the NW part, anyway)

I live northern Missouri, we got lots of snow north of us, lots of it just an hour's drive south of us, thank goodness, it missed us! Don't know how we got so lucky.

Well I have 40 acs and my closest neibor is just past the trees way back in the picture. We like it peaceful and some what remote, about 12 miles from town. Mark H.

I only have 25 acres, but I can't see any of my neighbors...that's the ONLY way...I can't see how people can live in apartments...nose to nose...the country is the only place to be for me(and my wife and my dog, etc.)

Ya I will go along with that! The only one I see is around 1/4 plus mile away and that is too close for me. I would go crazy living in town and they would have to lock me up befor I got in trouble. Mark H.
