Off the Block – Coos Bay Snowstorm Swimming

Photo submitted by Tim Nelson

Last week many of us were caught off guard by an unusually large snowstorm which dumped heavy snow on much of Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington Wednesday afternoon and overnight into Thursday morning.

Oregon Masters swimmer Tim Nelson sent me the following note:  On Thursday, 2/23, many were able to swim from 5am – 10am before the pool closed for the day due to unsafe parking lot conditions.  This is what it looked like then.  Snow is rare in Coos Bay and Thursday’s 5”+ was a once in a 10-15 year occurrence.

Anyone else have any snow pics from practice last week?  Please share!
