Sixty mile an hour winds will do some interesting things with blowing snow around. I have to say this is the first time I ever pulled up my front room blinds to see snow piled up this high.
Like a lot of places around the country, everybody in Southern Wisconsin in on a snow holiday.
The government is closed, schools and the officials have asked that everyone just stay home and let the snow crews get the roads cleared. Sounds like a plan to me.
The bird feeders are filled. That makes me feel good. There plenty of birds waiting their turn on the porch swing, to get to the feeders.
Mary and Riley are going to make cookies today, work and day care are closed.
Last night, the weatherman showed flashes of lightening occurring during the blizzard. He said that snow was falling at inch an hour but when THUNDER SNOW started showing up on their radar that the snow would start increasing to 2-3 inches an hour. I knew about Thunder Snow, I've heard it before but I didn't know that it would increase the amount of snow falling.
Zeus is out with the snowblower. This is going to be a long day for him. At some point I want him to do a path out to the woods so we can take a load of the ears of corn we have and put them at the woods edge for the deer.
I would love to get out to the studio today but I'm going to have to wait until he has time to plow out a path for me.
I hope those of you that got hit by this storm are staying safe and warm and for those of you that still have it to arrive. Get those groceries now, books from the library and then settle in to enjoy your snow day.l
