….for the moment. It’s a beautiful, sunny morning here. The temperature at 8 am was 15 degrees and we have just an inch or two of snow…..but…..
…..later today, the forecast is for blizzard conditions! We’re expecting sustained winds of 50 – 70 miles per hour with gusts to 90 miles per hour and 3 – 8 inches of snow!
As you see in this photo, our house is surrounded by giant evergreen trees. Just to the left of our house is our kennel building….and 17 more evergreen trees. When the wind starts to blow, it sounds like a freight train is rumbling through our backyard. Branches fall…..but we’ve never had a tree come down.
We’re prepared for a power outage: lots of firewood, candles and propane in the BBQ, in case we need it for cooking. Fortunately, the weather is expected to improve next week but the next couple of days could be exciting!
Noon Update: Light snow beginning to fall, light breeze beginning to blow.
6 pm Update: Light snow since 3 pm, 1/2 inch accumulated, wind has been blowing for a couple of hours….not the 50 – 70 mph winds yet…..but pretty gusty.
