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!
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
