This morning when they called off school the weather didn’t look that bad. We had a bit of snow blowing around, but most of the snow was still staying put. When our mail was delivered about 9 a.m. we were surprised, usually mail doesn’t come until after noon. Now it is a different story.
Winds are holding at over 30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph. We have ourselves a ground blizzard.
If you are out of the wind, temperatures are not too bad. Step out into the wind and you have a different story. I have trouble seeing across my yard with all of the snow in the air, and yet, when you look up there is the sun in a mostly clear sky.
I can hear a truck out on the highway but he doesn’t seem to be moving that fast. I would not want to be in a car in these conditions. This is the time I am glad for a warm house and plenty of food. I’m hunkered down with a project or two and a book. It’s great to live in Minnesota on a day like this and have nothing that has to be done.
