I am amazed at how much snow a tree can hold. The trees in the Cascades are very tall (see yesterday's shot for an idea), so it would be interesting to learn, on average, just how much weight the trees can hold, before the tree limbs give and snow falls to the ground.
And get this, the Weather forcasters predicted 3 ft of snow last night on the Western slopes of the Cascades. (Not sure if that happened, however they did close one highway due to a "snow slide". ) Another foot of snow falls tonight and the following night. This is pure avalanche territory, and all travelers are being cautioned to prepare well before travel. I would rather just tell them to stay put, mysefl, which is what I'm doing.But it is all so beautiful.
