Well, it looks pretty dreadful out there.
Pretty much white-out conditions.
And we're not even getting the worst of it or as bad as they expected, but it is still coming down. Or should I say across.
Interstate 29 is closed from Fargo to Watertown, SD. I heard down by Minneapolis there were areas that had a bad ice storm first! Nasty! Around the area there are places that have been dumped on pretty heavily, but Fargo-Moorhead itself hasn't gotten the 5-6 inches they thought we'd have by the crack of grey sky. We only had 2 inches (3 by now). We are a bit farther to the edge of the storm front than they expected.
Look at the snow hanging out and over the garage roof this morning! Wow! The wind wasn't aimed in our direction, so we didn't get much snow into the porch for Karma. She went out to look this morning and wasn't too interested in trying it again. Not enough new snow to be worth her trouble, I guess.
I had to crank up the heat yesterday when the cold wind kicked in. Karma disappeared. Found her next to the heat vent snoozing in her cat stroller--LOL!
Right now up here on third floor I can look across the room and all I can see out my window is white. Looks like we should get a couple more inches at least...depending on when this storm lets up. There are school closings and travel warnings. I wonder if Dagan and Leah will go to work today? I am so glad I cancelled the dentist appointment!! Rescheduled everything for Wednesday, March 14th. Good day to be inside with a fat, sleepy cat. ;)
I spent yesterday catching up online (almost 20 of the blogs I follow still have WV--bummer), working on letters owed, and washing clothes. Today I'd best start on budget, bills, groceries, and the fun orders I want to make for March. ;)
There have been tornadoes down south, too! Prayers and hugs for whoever needs them. May you all be safe this Leap Day. :)
I'd say those winds of grace have been really blasting us lately!

All we need to do is set our sails."
