My trifeta snow storm could be on its way. The freezing fog on our cedar trees shown here from a few days ago may have been the first hint.

The forecast is for freezing drizzle changing to sleet and ice later today. Rush hour most likely. After the ice has wreaked havoc on driver’s cars and nerves, the snow begins…ushered in by 15-30 mph winds with gusts to 40mph. And then it snows for 24 hours. Straight.

Not even Entrepreneur will be able to keep up with the driveway plowing when it hits fulls stride at 2 inches per hour.

And this is not just a snow storm. The weather guessers are calling it a SNOWMASS. With blizzard warnings and white out conditions.

Translated, that means it’s a “get-your-ass-off-the-road-and-stay-home” snow of 15-20 inches before it’s all finished.

As I look out my office window, the parking lot and streets glisten. The cars are already encrusted with a a thin sheet of ice. Those on the roads later will be faced with some tough travel.

Of course in my perfect storm, everyone is off the road. All pets are safe an warm inside. Other animals are holed up someplace away from the danger. Homeless folks are safely in shelters. But I know that’s not always the case.

So be careful out there. Check on your neighbors. Bring in the pets. Feed the animals and birds. And when it’s finished, let’s all do what we can to help those that didn’t fare as well as we did.

  1. I totally agree with your winter storm post. Yippee, I get to stay home. This doesn’t happen but once every 20 years or so around here. We rarely every get much of a winter and I am loving it… from inside my home. Hubby is home, cats are in the house (well they’re actually indoor cats), Mom is home safe and all stocked up with essentials. We’re praying for my brother who left Chicago yesterday to come to Texas. He’s now approaching Little Rock, AR. They’ll make it okay I’m sure. Your photos are beautiful. Karen


  2. How strange this year is. How often I say that! Here we are, no snow at all on the ground. Staying to the west of this year’s offerings by Mother Nature. I am grateful, but yet concerned for all of those who are in the midst of it all. Over and over again. In the meantime, I wait for the other shoe to fall and keep my wine supply stocked up.


Thank you for taking time to comment. I appreciate each and every one.
