Luckily, all of our people are here (those who will be here, anyway. The CA Contingent is staying there), and I'm done with my shopping and wrapping, and have plenty of food and drink to last us for the duration, so though I do not wish a blizzard on anyone, if it happens: we're ready.
The girls and I made Peanut Butter Blossoms.
I ventured out this morning to take pictures, in my winter wear- snowpants, Carhartt jacket and hat, Sorell boots, (rated for -20 degrees, purchased in the 80's and still going strong), and Ragg Wool gloves with Thinsulate linings. I was toasty warm- in fact if I'd been out very long, I would have become overheated.
The snow is highly mobile, so some spots are bare.
Others... not so much (no swimming for awhile)
An old gate
Hay bales. Big hay bales (these are over 5' tall and weigh over 1,000 lbs)
In sheltered spots, the snow piled up.
Stay warm everyone. Stay toasty, hunker down, and drive carefully. The next couple of days are going to be interesting.
