This winter is looking to be very much like our “Long Winter” of 1988/89 that we had when living in South Dakota. That’s a story in itself, and I might put that on later.
However, I thought today that I would share with you the video I took out the living room window this afternoon. This is mainly for you poor souls who have never experienced a blizzard. For those of you who have, grab a blanket and a cup of something hot to drink! You KNOW what’s coming!
The temperature dropped from 23º this morning to -9º this evening. The wind is blowing about 40 miles per hour and the snow is still coming “down” – well, coming sideways! That means our chill factor is -34º!!! Mighty cold, I'll admit!
Although it is cold today, it been cozy inside. I’ve been working on the 15” loom, dreaming of a second 15” that Norm is going to build me and looking for supplies for that new loom.
I have sold my 45” floor loom; the people will come collect it sometime soon (if the weather cooperates) so I will have room for another little loom and the money to buy the parts that Norm can’t build.
So, enjoy the blizzard – I certainly am! And have a beautiful day!
Oh, and turn your volume up if you want to HEAR the blizzard!
