    Wind is whistling!

    Pigeons are sitting under the van next door. At least there is no white stuff.

    I hope it's whistling Dixie, or other warm thoughts. As you already know, we're bracing for a major kick in the pants here in the midwest. Beginning to think the groundhog is a prevaricator. Not berating the one in PA. We have our own just 6 miles away.

    If you look at the line-up of old cars, there is a '29 Model A Ford, a '34 Olds, and a '30 Olds, I'm driving the '30 Olds. Belongs to a friend of ours. The '29 Model A belongs to my son.

    Anyway, stay safe Carol, and we'll hold our own here.

    We're supposed to get a little bootfull of weather, doubt it's like what the midwest is scheduled for, but I sure wouldn't mind a little dumping of precipitation.

    We didn't get anything but wind last night, but boy did we get some wind... it wasn't whistling though, it was howling. They said we could expect gust up to 60 mph and up in the mountains up to hurricane force.... today was beautiful though... about 55 or 60 degrees, sunny and bright.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Winds are 40-45 mph. No precipitation yet but coming. Up to 9" of snow in the mountains around this valley tonight, rain here. Winds will dissipate for the precipitation but be back by noon tomorrow. Slipped the woodworkers club meeting tonight. Winds too high and too cold. I'm a pansy.

    The system you are seeing is headed here right now. There are fears of a repeat of the great ice storm of 2009. I'm going shopping later today. Making sure basics are in order. Plenty of candles, batteries, extra gas for generator, etc. Oh, yes, food I can eat cold. Wife is out of town, I can rough it OK.

    I picked up several bags of pellets for the pellet stove and a 40lb bag of ice melt. Will get some fresh gas tonight and test fire the generator. We've got buried power lines, so will only be main lines that knock out our power, which should be back on in hours I think we have enough fresh groceries for the rest of the week, but given we're on a main road, only getting stuck in our own driveway will keep us from getting out (unless it's ice).

    It started spitting snow here around 6 AM, just looked out at the back deck and there was about 3" on top of the rails already, but that's been mostly since 7 AM. Can barely make out the neighbor's house across the street, I'd say we've got some white-out conditions going here.

    Ken, I brought in a ton of wood from outside this morning to have a few fires over the next few days...wish I had a stove I like them so much more than fireplaces, but the wood still get's to cracklin in the fireplace too! Snow hasn't even started and schools are letting out already?
