Andy doesn’t know what’s coming next.
There’s another snowstorm, one that’s near-blizzard level, around the corner!
How’s a kitty to sleep? Will there be enough kitty treats and kitty wet food to survive the storm?
Not to worry, Andy! You have lots of kitty food and treats in stock. I’ll probably use up some frozen food and pasta dishes during the time between the start, end, and dig out phases, but both of us will be comfortable, fat and sassy as long as the electricity is on.
Here’s what we were warned about Monday morning:
..WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 6 AM MONDAY TO 6 PM MDT WEDNESDAY… * WHAT…Heavy snow and near-blizzard conditions expected. Total snow accumulations of 12 to 24 inches. Higher snow totals expected along and near the Pine Ridge. Winds gusting as high as 55 mph. * WHERE…In Nebraska, Dawes, Box Butte, and Sioux County. In Wyoming, Goshen County. This includes Chadron, Lusk, Harrison, Alliance, and Torrington. * WHEN…From 6 AM Monday to 6 PM MDT Wednesday. * IMPACTS…Travel could be very difficult to impossible. Blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility. Gusty winds could bring down tree branches. * ADDITIONAL DETAILS…Conditions may warrant an upgrade to Blizzard Warning with future updates.
Wow. That sounds awful. We’re due for a thunderstorm. (The wonders of being protected by the Great Lakes.)
So far, as of 5 April in the morning, we haven’t had much of any storm here in my town. We seem to have missed the storm here. Of course, the warning goes up to 6 PM today.
Glad to hear you escaped.
I can take it! On the other hand, the weather began with rain that froze. When I went out to my car this morning, there were icicles hanging off the front end, sides, and rear of it.
Hope you don’t lose power.
No storm so far!
I hope you still have no seen the snow yet, Doug. We had a few flurries this morning, but not enough to stick. It was right on freezing with a low, uniformly grey sky at 7:00 AM here.
That’s about as much as we had in my town so far.
Take care and stay safe. Glad you have each other for company.
As of the morning of the 5th…no significant snow on the ground, just a skiff!
Wow, I don’t envy your weather, Doug! This winter just won’t let go will it. Close the doors and windows tight! 🥶
That’s what I did! Being a one-time Michigander, I know you understand the routine!
Yowie! Sounds like quite a storm! Sounds like you and Andy are well prepared, though.
We try to be. I even back my car into the parking space so I can make best use of the front wheel drive and avoid the normal way the wind causes drifts.
We are enjoying our first week of 70 degree weather! Please don’t send your storm east!
Sorry, but I bet there will be enough snow, wind, and cold left over for you, Kate!
No snow as of 3 AM Tuesday, at least in my town.
I do hope it eases up
It hasn’t done anything here yet, but the warning is up till Wednesday night….
wow… we thought winter is back to northpole… but even we got snow last weekend… seems mother nature emptied more than one bottle …..
Yikes! Be safe, Doug and Andy! 🥶
Still waiting for any significant snow or blowing more than halfway through the duration of the warning….
