Umbrella Falls cascades through a fresh blanket of snow on the side of Mount Hood. The waterfall isn't far from Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Area, which is reporting more than a foot of snow at its base area. A boots-on-the-ground test Sunday afternoon verified that measurement.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive

The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
