The Weather Service wasn't kidding about this storm. It took awhile to build up steam, but we're in the middle now. Luckily, we celebrated Christmas with the SD Son and SO and 3 Grands last night, and have no need to go anywhere today. Indeed, we couldn't go anywhere even if we wanted to. We're going to hunker down, and eat leftover turkey and make a drink, and watch another disc of Season 5 of Lost.
All in all, a pretty great holiday.
So, what's it like outside, you ask? Well, lookie here:
Elderly Snow Angel in action
The wind is an amazing sculptor
25mph winds, 21 degrees, snowing (hard to tell how much we've gotten already, since it moves around a lot, but I'd say we have 6"-8" of new, and that much more predicted by Saturday). I was nice and warm inside all those bulky layers (except for my face, which was freezing).
Most of the front steps are buried
Remember the gate pic from a few days ago?
very low visibility
and high drifts (that's The Hub).
I hope everyone is safe and warm and having a wonderful Christmas!
