Scenery: Railroad Tracks Peeking Through Snow (Coquille, OR)

While walking the dogs with my husband one day, I stopped at the top of the hill at the base of our driveway before going down into the snow. I couldn't stop staring at all of the trees looking so white! We do not get snow very often here in Coquille, Oregon. In fact, as a kid it was so rare that we'd only see a little snow every 5 years or so. Even then, there wasn't usually enough to make a snowman. So, seeing this much white in my area was completely exciting!

I do wonder if weather is changing. I have a neat book depicting the history of our little Coos County, and the pictures it shows from back in the 20's and 30's are covered in snow! In one photo, you can see our local community building (which is still there today) and it's drowning in the winter wonderland! With the snowfall increasing around here each year, I wonder if it will ever be that way around here again. If so, probably not in my lifetime, thank goodness!

Anyway, just thought I'd share my photo and thoughts with you today. This picture is a bit dated, I took it back in February of this year, but I just finished touching it up and you are one of the first ones to see it. Please always feel free to tell me what you think. You guys rock!

May God keep His watchful eyes upon you all the rest of your days!
