Mother Nature's Fun

We have been "enjoying" a BLIZZARD. Yes, my friends that is what I said. Actually we have been under a "Blizzard Warning" all day and it will continue into tomorrow morning at 6:00 a.m. According to NOAA a Blizzard Warning is when there are "sustained winds or frequent gusts of wind up to 35 miles an hour OR greater. Considerable falling/ blowing snow and reduced visability to less than 1/4 mile for a period of 3 hours or more." We are also under a state of emergency and many of the main highways are closed. Most stores and restaurants closed early and all schools were closed. Schools are closed tomorrow too. I can say that I have never experienced anything like this before. Storms yes, a blizzard no. I guess there IS a first time for everything. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Below you will see pics as our storm developed. The first three were taken around noon. Compare the wagon pics.
The next set of pics were
taken between 3:00 pm
and 4:00 pm.
We are doing fine.
We have groceries and
heat plus power. This
too shall pass.
Right now it is 10 degrees
with a wind chill of -10
degrees. Wind gusts
around 40 miles an

Please don't forget the

Valentine Card Challenge.

See Sunday's post. I would

appreciate any help.
