Winter Blast

We've gotten hit with a whopper snow storm. "One for the record books", the local meteorologists are telling us. Our area is predicted to receive 9-12 inches by the time the storm ends late this afternoon.

I snapped a couple quick pics of my neighborhood this morning. I'd say we have 6-7 inches so far although I haven't actually gone out to measure.

If you're getting hit by this snow storm too maybe you'd prefer to stay home and do your Christmas shopping :-) Here's what you need to know...

  1. Oh, no, Jasia - so much snow! After your comment to me last night I went and opened my back door and, behold, we were getting a whopper of a storm, too. By this morning, could not easily get the back door open without much effort. Thank goodness I only have to walk down into my lower level of the home to go to work!

    I remember those days of heavy storms and having to drive from 10 and Gratiot into Grosse Pointe to work at Bon Secours Hospital. Not all that far considering but far enough for me! Stay warm and snug in your house!


  2. Our high was 77 yesterday but today we peaked out before dawn at 64 and are steadily going down to a projected low of 36 tonight. We did get some badly needed rain out of this front, but further south is reporting tornadoes. I'm just hoping the cool weather will stick around through Christmas. ;)

  3. No snow yet, but my water is frozen, and my bones are aching from the cold. Getting old is h*ll. :-(
