After the Storm(s) - Big Piles of Snow Remain

Real Estate Agent with Kelly Right Real Estate

In January 2017, the Hood River area was hit hard by snowstorms as well as an ice storm.  Earlier this week when I was driving through town, the main roads were in fairly good shape; smaller side roads not so much. The amount of snow still remaining is pretty impressive, as the following pictures show.

Snow Pile - Hood River Supply

This huge pile of snow is in the Hood River Supply parking lot in the Heights.  Across the street, cars were plowed in to make some parking available for customers.

Cars plowed in - Brookside & 12th

In the Cascade Eye Center/Domino's parking lot, the snow berm towers over vehicles.

Residential side streets are more of a challenge.  The picture below is on Sherman Ave, off 9th.

The berms in front of the County offices are smaller but still difficult to navigate.  A pathway has been provided to allow easier access.

More snow forecast for the end of the week.  Anyone ready for spring?

This looks like Minnesota in past years.  Not like the last 2 years

It is so pretty when it's falling and right after it's over.  Then a few days of melt and traffic and it looks terrible

Us too!  Most snow we've ever had here in the Boise area.  It melted a bit last week, but it's been a crazy two months.  9 snow days for our school district!  Fun stuff huh?-Kasey

We have had 8 snow days.  Schools are petitioning the state for some relief to avoid having to go through late June.

Just wow.  I can't even imagine that.  The most snow I've experience in my lifetime was 18 inches once in 1973.  Most of the time in Georgia we get a dusting, we all run out and take photos, then we watch it melt in the afternoon. We've had a few dreadful ice storms and they stink... and usually result in power outages of 2 days or so.  But that only happens once every few years.
