Badger Hollow Winter Storm January 4 2017

In early December 2016 the temperature plummeted to well below freezing as a series of winter storms passed through Oregon, leaving deep accumulations of snow in their wakes. The worst of the storms blew in on January 4, followed soon there after by another severe storm.

Single digit temperatures and high winds blew the snow everywhere
The view from our front door reveals a long drift four feet deep
Out the back door the observatory and round pen are buried
Wind sculpted snow creeping six feet up the wall
Ridges of snow stretched everywhere
Taylor is not amused
The truck is going nowhere anytime soon
Looking up Grizzly Mountain Road from our driveway
 
Looking down toward Prineville
US 26 looking north
