Sun before the Storm

This afternoon the sun tried to shine through the cloudy overcast sky. On the TV, the local weather forecasters are calling for a huge snow storm headed our way. This evening and over night we should get an inch of new snow. Tuesday another 1 to 2 inches. Then the big one hits us Tuesday afternoon around 4pm until noon on Wednesday. During this time frame it could snow an inch an hour they predict. Our total accumulation by Wednesday evening is going to be 8 to 18 inches of new snow. And if that isn’t enough, Wednesday afternoon the winds are going to pick up with gusts around 40 mph causing much drifting and white outs. Everyone is expecting all the schools to be closed on Wednesday for sure.

I took the “before” picture, from our front bow window, showing about 3 inches on the ground now. Wednesday afternoon I will take another picture of the same area and will compare the amount of snowfall. According to the Weather Channel, this storm is going to reach all the way down into the middle of Texas! Not the snow of course, but severe weather. I guess we could call this storm the “Mother” of all storms! Surprised smile

Tomorrow morning we have a few items to pick up from the store. Then we will get back home and wait for the storm to hit. Hopefully it’s not going to be as bad as the weather men and ladies are predicting.

Ken and Margie took us out to dinner this evening. It was a great dinner with much conversation and a few laughs. Wilma and I really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks Ken and Margie.
Until next time, be safe and God Bless.

I just don’t understand, and am asking for suggestions, why there is such a large gap between the two pictures on my posting. Using Windows Live Writer there is no gap at all. In fact the bottom picture is up close to the bottom of the top picture. Any ideas from my readers would be greatly appreciated on what I may be doing wrong or how to correct this.  Thanks


  1. No clue as to what happened to your pictures... They are beautiful though! Maybe in the HTML tab there are to many spaces... you would need to delete them from there. BUT I am not sure just guessing. ☺
    Have fun & travel safe

  2. Thank you Donna, yep I had to open the HTML tab in Blogger to get the results I wanted.
    It's still not exactly like Live Writer, but I guess I have to expect that when using two different companies products.

    Thanks again for the tip.

  3. Sounds like it is going to be a big storm, break out the snow shoes. :)
