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!
