Sandy Glacier Ice Caves on Mt. Hood

by Liz Warren

Up on Mt. Hood the Sandy Glacier boasts the largest glacier ice cave system in the lower  48 states. Lots of recent attention has been brought to this discovery. Recently a new viral video is out called "Requiem of Ice" which was filmed over a years time. The caves were discovered about a decade ago and have been mapped and studied. The two systems of caves are called Snow Dragon and Pure Imagination.

A Portland area film company called Uncage the Soul and Aerial Technology International collaborated on the project. Aerial Technologies sells drones and custom builds aerial solutions for customers. Uncage the Soul creates adventure, commercial and documentary productions.

October home sales were down from September on the mountain. After a lingering warm fall it could be buyers were out enjoying our exceptional extended fall weather which came to a screeching halt when big winds and six inches of snow hit Welches this month. Nationally and in Portland sales for October were record breaking with the highest number of sales since 2006. 

Here's what sold in October:

Crazy Week, Crazy Weather

by Liz Warren

Mt. Hood area residents have had more than a few days of big winds, freezing temps and snow! Lets start with the big winds that knocked out power to many mountain residents, at least a 1,000 in total, with huge gusts taking down big healthy trees and doing a lot of damage throughout the area including the forest service!

Freezing temps that brought the chill of winter early put vacation home owners in a panic in getting their pipes drained down and ready for the extended cold snap!

Then a bit of snow and ice showed up to top it off. Welches has about six inches on the ground and side roads are still fairly treacherous with ice pack. School was canceled for the second time for the Welches primary and middle schools due to road conditions.

Daytime warming should take care of some of the ice today.

Sun comes to Mt. Hood

New local resident Rod Scholl tells about his power outage experience and the generator he installed when he build his new home.

Heading back to our normal fall weather will be a great relief for many. This snow opened Mt. Hood Meadows this weekend and of course, Timberline, with the Palmer ski lift, is really rocking for skiers already!
