Friday morning, temperature is -14.8 and so far we still have power and internet. This is all good. I've checked out the windows but being 5:30 am and still dark, it's hard to really get a good idea of how much snow has come down. It's drifted in places, I can hear the wind howling and still very fine snow coming down. The old saying "little snow means big snow; big snow means little snow" is happening for sure. The small stuff mounts up. They still have a blizzard warning issued with near zero visibility so best advise - stay home if you really aren't needed elsewhere. For the skiers in the hood - looks like Saturday and Sunday will be your days. My plans - do some work around the house, curl up and read and probably eat more than I should. If it slacks off later today I may just take a prowl around the hood.
Yesterday was storm readiness day. Nothing I like better than getting ready and then we keep the power. I really don't like losing it but prefer to be prepared if we do. We hit back to exercise class - Cindy decided to have a 10 am session just in case the weather stopped us from going out last night. Sure glad she did. Man when you don't go for a few weeks - nearly kills ya! In my true fashion, I fell off the ball - always good to start the Year off right. Did a few errands in town and we were back home by noon. Baked a ham and potato scallop for supper which will be great for leftovers the next few days. I did try a walk in the afternoon around the hood. Had my snowsuit, mitts and hat on but should have had a scarf up around my face. Was pretty good through the woods but once I hit the lake - bitter cold. The temperature didn't go above -13 and I have no idea what it was with the wind chill except darn cold. A cozy night in, cup of tea and some tv rounded off the day.
Enjoy your day!
