    Not really, I live in inner NE PDX. Near the airport, the East/West rail tracks (we hear the horns not the trains) and, of course, traffic.
    Crows aren't a big issue. Also, I'm a birder and crows are very cool, intelligent animals! I always remember that they're full name is American Crow, they were here first! Now, I have nothing at all against protecting your crops and game birds! Perfectly alright! Here in town I couldn't do anything about it anyway! :)

    I have friends that are birdwatchers, same thing as birders? They are soooo embarrassing!;)

    I am sorry for where you live. Many good wishes that you can get to Gods country someday. :p

    PS having lived near tracks I know we don't hear the train horns after some time there.

    Starting to thaw near Monmouth. Cozy fire going, and soup on the stove. We're using some of the tomatoes we canned last summer. Next, biscuits.

    Bank fishing the Winchuck with a Jed Davis homemade spinner and 8.5' steelhead rod with 12# test. Glory days!! Still had dark hair about 1989. 180lbs instead of 230lbs now.

    We have had steady rain and our county is on flood watch. These are the perfect conditions for a flash flood and a similar situation is what caused the Heppner Flood of 1903.

    Snowing hard. Went outside to do some clearing before it gets worse... got the back patio so the dog can do it's biz. Got the front walk and deck so the paramedics can get in after I have my heart attack from trying to dig out the 4' tall drift in the driveway. My Toyota Highlander with studded tires is going to be stuck in the garage but I might could dig out the truck on the side of the driveway. City just came by and cleared the neighborhood roads but it won't be of much use to me.

    Wife is very very worried about flooding when it warms up. It's happened here before!

    Yep, he's my fireplace decoration. I took a class at Chemeketa many years ago, and learned how to make bronze sculptures. Made two of these little rascals. My son has the other one.

    SW Oregon. Moderate steady cold rain. Snow on roof melting fine. No where close to overloading the HD roof and trusses. Another storm tonight/tomorrow, Sun and Mon, 8 & 9 January, 2017 above 3000 feet.

    We are at 1500 feet. Will see. Sometimes we get the expansion cooling. If no more snow tonight will try to get to Cave Junction Oregon tomorrow. Bills to pay. Running out of bird peanuts. But ... if nasty? No go.

    Yep ... conditions are like the big flood back in the 1968 or so? Sawyers Flat became Lake Sawyers. But perhaps too cold for that to happen? Will see. Now snow bound for 8 days. Getting a little bit old. Yikes!

    Coffee nudge time:

    1 jigger Brandy or whiskey(if you must), 1/2 of coffee liqueur, 1/2 of Creme de Cocoa, fill with coffee, add 1 dollop of whipped creme.

    After two of these I am warm but I can't see straight!!:rolleyes:
