got up and went to grocery store about 7:30 this morning. It was not snowing yet. By 9: 00 when we came out of the store we had to clean off the car before we could drive home, and the roads were noticeably bad. Wind has really picked up . Temp here is still 21*

We're all in for it this weekend. I got up at 7:15 and took the dog out. We already had 3 inches of fresh fluffy snow. But at least it made walking easier than on the treacherous ice that's everywhere after sunny days have melted the snow and then refroze in the overnights. Now the snow is coming down sideways and the roads are getting bad, even the major streets.We are down to 13 with a -7 windchill. I'm back from shopping with my girlfriend. Traffic was slow, hills are slippery. We stopped to get calcium chloride for the sidewalks. Hah! Everyone, everywhere is completely sold out of all forms of snow/ice melters. I wasn't able to even get a small plastic jug of the stuff.

Well I'm in for the week-end. Doing some laundry and working on a quilt. I just hope we don't lose power, if the winds pick up.

Try kitty litter next time, Midge, not the clumping kind if you really need traction.

I'm so thankful I don't have to go out in this, other than taking the dog out. The temps are steadily falling here and the wind is relentless! Here's a pic DH took just a bit ago.

My niece just posted these pictures. She said they are on Rt. 23 going about 20 mph. Her hubby should be at the sheriff's dept. putting levels on this stuff...not out driving around.

Parking bans here, and accidents increasing. I heard there is a big pileup on the turnpike. Stay home and stay safe!

My long suffering mailperson just brought me some packages....yes of course it's fabric and thread. And my Mod Block. I'm making an Irish Coffee and settling down on the sofa to read it.

I've been having white out squalls here all afternoon and I didn't measure how much new snow when I got the mail because I took a nasty spill. It's all ice under this new snow because of a very brief, but very melting two day warm up with heavy rains.

The winds are 30 mph winds now and the temps are falling fast. I sure hope we don't loose power either.
Calling for -30 wind chills tonight and the high (ha!) of -5F tomorrow. No relief in sight until Tuesday.

Is it April yet???

I just saw on FB that in Morrow County there is a multi-vehicle accident. I saw a FedEx truck in that pile up....anyone expecting a delivery?

I plan to stay home. When I was younger (much younger)....it was time to get out and go somewhere (anywhere) in this stuff......now if we get a snowflake I am whimpering about "don't want to drive in all that snow".

It is like a post card! I love the bird and windmill. I'm sorry it comes at your expense! My daughter in IN keeps calling to give me updates and I'm cold just hearing about it!

Well we'll finally get a real taste of Winter come Tuesday into Wednesday, and yep, even snow and ice. Fortunately for us, it won't last long, but trust me, one day of these mini storms shuts NE Texas down. So sorry y'all are having such fits with these awful temps, ice and snow Hunker down, stay warm and safe y'all!
