Today we had a snow day. But it wasn’t just any snow day; it was a blizzard that was so well predicted, and came with so much warning, that we already knew (by the time we went to bed) that school would be cancelled today. It began snowing yesterday afternoon, and was a blizzard by evening. It snowed all night… Here is the scene at 8:00 a.m:
The deck was so covered, it was hard to walk out the door!
After breakfast, K and I went out to take a walk. The temp was just below freezing, but falling fast, and the wind had picked up. The road was slippery but it was so cool to be out in a mostly silent world. When we got home, though, there was a lot of work to do.
I thought I was wearing enough, but perhaps not. Now I feel like I’m getting a cold….
The National Weather Service says there were 17" of snow on the west side of Madison by late afternoon, and we live about 15 miles west of that, so that sounds about right. Right now the temperature continues to fall, and the low is expected to be zero, and that’s Fahrenheit, folks! Happy winter!
