Blizzard conditions

Not a lot of snow, but the wind is blowing like crazy, fifty miles an hour and more.  Since I was busy baking an apple pie, I sent Cliff out with the camera.  

Cliff's brother at Higginsville was going to come and spend the day with Cliff in the shop, which is why I was baking a pie; unfortunately he got stuck before he ever got out of his mile-long driveway.  Oh well, Cliff, his sister Rena, and I will do our best to eat the pie.

There are tracks leading into that calf hutch.

Hi, George and Gracie!  It's a little crowded in there, but at least you are out of the wind.  

It took my daughter three-and-a-half hours to get to work this morning.  Cliff's sister got halfway to work, gave up, and came back home.  It's a mess.

I hope George and Gracie keep each other warm!

Hope you all stay safe and warm there. The rain has just started here but we have high wind warnings and snow watch tonight and through tomorrow. I guess your storm is headed our way.

Actually, it was nearly 3 1/2 hours. LOL

Wow...! How does the newest baby do in the blizzard conditions? George and Gracie are pretty smart!

It appears you and I were exactly just north and just south of the heavy stuff. That appears to be exactly what we got for snow but just 25 south of us it was much heavier in Blair, NE.
We lost our power for 1 hour Wed nite but just when I was thinking of going out to drive the tractor and generator around to the meter pole, the power was restored. much better than what I was going to do.
