Blizzard Through Tomorrow

This blizzard was supposed to start about 3 pm today. Here is what it looked like at 3 pm. when I went out to clear off snow in front of my door.  Trailerstead doors open out not in and are susceptible to blocking exit even with a 4×8 back porch cover.

It is about 6 inches and snowing heavily.  I am expected to get up to 20 inches by morning and wind gusts up to 50 mph making drifts 3-5 feet deep.  A fair amount of snow for here.

It is Saturday and I have no plans to go anywhere… the roads are already shut down.  It is 22°F and not expected to melt off quickly.

We may lose power and I have alternate heat and light out, and 20 gallons of water set aside.  Better ready than feeling around in the dark.

About 8 inches now and no wind yet.  I’ll pass on the winds if given the choice.  Take care!

About rebeccatreeseed

I am a naturalist raised by naturalists. Treeseed is my earned name, while Rebecca is my birth name. I am of Northern European descent, with a quarter Irish.quarter thrown in. I suspect I was a product of northern invaders into Ireland into Ireland. but hard to say since DNA disproved the family story about Apache blood! I have found some odd ancestors to replace them. Last year I bought 5 acres of pinyon-juniper forest on the side of a mountain in Santa Fe County, New Mexico. I am fulfilling a lifetime dream of a cabin in the mountains and a food forest that will feed me and local wildlife. I want to share this new phase of my life with others that might be interested.

    Sounds grim. We’ve managed not to get flooded so are okay but hope you will maintain power and keep warm.

  2. Thanks. I am about to post what it looks like now!

  3. Texas gets snow on the panhandle and the northern part. Once in a while southern parts get snow. They lost all their citrus trees one year.
