Waiting for a blizzard

Yesterday we had temps over 40 — last night at 8:30 PM the water was still running down our driveway so fast it looked like someone had turned the hose on.  Today.

So different.

It’s currently 5F, with lots of gusty wind, so the wind chill is probably somewhere around -20.  The kids got dismissed early because the expectation is for SNOW, and thanks to the wind:  zero visibility.  The snow hasn’t actually started for us yet, but I guess other parts of the state are already seeing it and having trouble with travel.

I think I’d like to go back to California.

    I hear you. Today in frigid Alberta we woke up to a balmy -34C and even though the school is open and remarkably some of the buses are still running, I just think it is WRONG to go outside where the wind chill puts it below -40C and unprotected flesh will freeze in mere minutes. Of course my DH, with his farmer attitude headed into work. He figures he can get a bunch of paperwork done cause likely there won’t be many interruptions.!!

    I’m right there with you… woke up with temp of 52… down to 13 with a blizzard. When do the flights for CA leave???

    Am I going to get in trouble if I tell you it’s partly cloudy, a little breezy and 60F right now in my little corner of CA? ;cD

    Will be thinkin warm thoughts for you.
