Crazy Weather On the Oregon Coast for March



Oh my have we been having some wild weather! yesterday was rain, snow, hail, rain mixed with snow just snow, then some sun! I took some pictures of last Friday's weather and thought I would share....
This is just out side the house ready to travel, the second picture is Astoria and one of the many hills in town this is the big reason why Astoria closes down when snow rolls in. It's kinda of hard to see how steep this hill is, it's one of the worse hills in town.
In this third photo you can see another tough hill and I actually caught a car sliding its the one that is turned side ways.
Snowing down the road as we head to Longview WA with the load of logs. Now finally down the big hill into Longview WA. The storm started out with wind and rain and got worse! There was swelling in Seaside that were 40 Ft. and wind gusts up to 80 miles an hour then it all turned into snow and we got about 2 inches.

When I was younger, we used to love getting out and driving in the bad weather. We sure have been having some freaky weather, but I guess it's to be expected. Thanks for sharing with us :o)
