Well, we have been very fortunate, so far. In the last few days we got alot of snow, then we got freezing rain and then we got some pretty high winds. A fortunate sequence of events. The freezing rain on top of the “lots of snow” kept the high winds from doing too much of what they do best — create blizzard conditions including drifting.
So, yes we have about a foot of snow in our area. And yes, it was a little unnerving when the freezing rain hitting the windows in our bedroom night before last was so hard that I had trouble sleeping over the racket. But this could have been soooo much worse. Right now it looks like things are returning to normal, just a “normal” that includes having to deal with lots of snow all around you.
Huh. But now they say there may be another storm coming. I hope they’re wrong.
I have always been someone who revels in the four seasons, enjoying each one in its own time. But this year I think even a Winter-lover like me has just about had her fill of it and I am especially anxious for the first signs of Spring.
Stay safe and warm. If it hasn’t already, this big Blast of winter will pass too. And just think how much we will look back fondly on this cold weather when we have the inevitable sweltering days of Summer.
