While we lived out on our land, we had lots of visitors—from Seattle, Wisconsin, Texas, Minnesota, and even Germany! And, of course, dozens from Portland. Some came to help us with farm projects and some came just to play. One of our most frequent visitors was our friend, Laura Ross.
Laura would drive out to visit in her decrepit Volvo station wagon with a grocery bag full of steaks and whiskey. In 2004 spent New Year’s Eve with us. Little did we know she would stay a few extra days! The Gorge was hit with a huge snowstorm that weekend, and the road back to Portland was closed. But, as I mentioned in my recent post on Tattered Cover Books’ blog: when it snows lemons, you make frozen lemonade!
Tuesday is Laura’s birthday, so Mike and I (mostly Mike) whipped up a little video from that weekend. Laura makes her very first snow angel!
Happy Birthday, Laura Ross!
