With all the blizzard warnings, and talk of this massive storm Monday, I have to admit I was quite nervous. I think I heard this was only the second or third time that they have even issued a blizzard warning for our area, and with predictions of record snowfalls. As I lay in bed unable to sleep that night, I came up with this idea to take pictures from the front and back door of the house every half hour today to show the storm’s progress. I figure, hey if this thing is going to be history, I might as well document it.
I won’t be posting ALL of them on here, but I did cherry pick a few to share.
This was the view at 8:00am
By 11:00am I was chilled clean through, and trying to warm up. Started piling on warm fuzzy socks, sweats, anything I could find. This was the view at that point.
By 1:00pm I was just too chilled, had donned my insulated bibs and pig farmer coat. I just could not get warm no matter how I tried.
Still going strong at 1:30pm
By 3:00pm I think we were into the “second wave”
I think the snow had pretty much stopped by 5:00pm. Hard to tell with the wind still blowing everything around so much. We went out to feed the goats, and I figured since I was already out in it might as well get some outside the house shots.
Thanks for sharing the day with me. Hope you enjoyed the historical blizzard of 2011.
