Snow in Salem Oregon-Yes, You Read that Right and Happy Thanksgiving to All!
For any of you who are familiar with Salem, Oregon, you know we don't get much snow around here. If we do get a dusting, or a few inches, it is usually about once a year during December or January. This year we were treated to snow on Tuesday, right before Thanksgiving! It caused excitement and chaos all over Salem. The last time I remember it snowing in November was the first year I moved down here, 25 years ago. It snowed on Thanksgiving. That was also the year I decided that I didn't like driving in the snow anymore. Salem drivers are not used to driving in the snow, so going anywhere is exciting to say the least. I'm originally from Eastern Washington and took Driver's Ed in the winter, so until I moved to Salem, driving in the snow as no big deal.
Here is a picture that I took of our neighborhood in West Salem with our "huge" snow storm that cancelled school. Having snow certainly put a lot of people in the holiday spirit around here! From my family to your family, wishing you all a very safe and happy Thanksgiving full of love, fun and warm memories!
