The lovely snow of Sunday turned into a raging Arctic blast with temps in the teens and wind chills below zero on Monday. Our average high for this time of year is 50 degrees! My holiday wreath blew off the door and when I went out to retrieve it I could not close the storm door against the wind. Gusts were said to be up to 60 miles an hour!
The leaves on our rhododendron bushes were tightly curled against the cold - they do that when the temps go below 30. The neighbors ponies and goats are snug in their barn and pretty much everyone was staying indoors unless they had to be outside. Not much snow accumulation but visibility was minimal with wind driven snow. Not quite the pretty scene from my last post! Makes me want to move back to Florida!
We had to make a supply run into town but it was slow going on icy roads with high winds. It was supposed to be partly sunny but we only saw a blurry dim sun through the clouds all day here.
