Blizzard ‘Colbie’

The Governor issued a state-wide travel ban at 9 last night, a sure sign of trouble ahead.

Here’s the view from our front porch at noon today. . .

625 BLZ Blizzardheavy snowfall with a sustained wind of 15 miles an hour, gusting to 40 – perfect for a Cozy Day of Crochet.

– tsk – Wish I’d thought to snap some pics at 7 o’clock this morning. We had near white-out conditions then!

How the birdhouses on our garage normally look. . .

625 BLZ-at-noon14″ so far, enough for DH to really appreciate his new snow blower.

625 BLZ-14"-so-farSupposedly, more is on its way.

625 BLZ-moreI think we’ve dodged a Big One; just half an hour northeast of us they have 25″!!

The weather forecast says the temperature will drop to 5° F tonight. It’s likely that the power will stay on as high winds aren’t nearly as bad as heavy wet snow and what we’ve gotten so far is fluffy dry powder.

    My husband watches the news and I overhead the travel ban issued last night for your area. Out here in eastern Washington overnight temperature this week is low 40s and daytime nearly 60. Last week a few days were in the mid to low thirties during the day. I hope your power stays on, too. If not, I hope you have a backup generator for electricity and water. All the best.

    I remember those days, we were stationed in Minot, North Dakota for three years. A very good day to crochet.

    brrrrrrrr … perfect conditions to be tucked up inside with a lap full of crochet 🙂

  5. So good to hear from you! Have been wondering how you were faring. Glad to know you’re managing. And keep on crocheting!

  6. I hope your night went okay, and you dIdn’t lose power. Stay safe!

    Here, at our small alpine country, there is also a bunch of Snow expected in the next two days. In some ways I love this wintery atmosphere of quietness, the different light and brightness outside – and the crunchy sound walking through fresh fallen snow… Stay Safe! Hugz

    • You have painted a beautiful picture with your words, Helene. Thanks for taking us along on your walk.

      I especially enjoy snow in moonlight. The trees cast such dramatic shadows!
      If I happen to wake up during the night, I can’t resist walking through the house to check the view from several windows before I head back to bed.
