The Weather Outside Is Frightful

I braved the storm the other night, at least as far as the porch, so I could snap a couple pictures of the blowing snow.


It snowed for about 36 hours straight, but at the time of the pictures it was starting to work up into a fury. We missed seeing most of it because it finished with a bang during the night.

The following day we had a few flurries in the morning that gradually tapered off and petered out. But boy, did the wind blow. I went out around noon to shovel and I had to be very strategic about where I threw the snow or it would blow right back in my face. This picture was taken at about 7:30 in the morning.

Now, a day later, we are facing sub-zero temperatures and even worse wind chills. It was clear and sunny today, blindingly bright. I hope it warms up a bit soon because I'd like to go out and play in this snow, but I am NOT a sub-zero kind of girl!

I cannot tell you the number of times I had to tell my children today that NO, they could not play outside because their limbs are valuable to me.
