I woke up at 5 a.m. this morning, knowing that we would have snow on the ground, I mean, we are under a winter storm warning and all. Not only is there snow ON the ground, it's still falling from the sky like feathers after a pillow fight!!
Unfortunately it's a wet snow that is sticking on everything!! That means the electric will probably go out soon. (That's one of the bad things about living here, the electric lines go down a lot!! I remember one year.....well, lets just say that things can get interesting if you go without electric for a week!) When I say wet snow that is sticking to everything I feel as though I'm not exactly putting it in words that convey my meaning, so here is a picture of the trees outside my bathroom window!
I went outside with a ruler and stuck it into the snow, at the shallowest point around my porch it showed that we had three inches of snow, at the deepest almost 4. My little black dog came out, looked around and said, "Screw this, I don't really have to pee", and went back inside to crawl under the covers and go back to sleep!! I should have done the same thing, but, being the masochist that I am, I am still awake and wondering if the snow will stop before I'm left in the dark!
Now for the weather report.......It's a blazing 30.7 degrees with humidity of 97% (how we can have 97% humidity when we have chunks of frozen water falling from the sky I'll never know!). We have 100% chance of snow for the next 12 hours.....hmmmmm, does that mean that the humidity will drop?
On a day like today I think people should stay inside and do all the things that they have been putting off, like making cookies and candies and finishing up Christmas presents. What do you think I'm going to do today? Yup, make cookies and candies and finish up some unfinished projects. I may even go outside and build a snow-mouse for my kitties.........or maybe a snow-bunny for my pups....either way I'll take some pictures and post them for you so you can share my winter brrrrrrrr.
Oh, for 80 degree days again.
