Winter arrived with a roar. A literal roar. Thunder woke me this morning. Thunder and the wind moving the tall oak trees in the woods. I awakened to a white-out world. Hard to know how much snow has actually fallen.
I shoveled the front walk and the area around the stoop so the dogs would have room to move. I shoveled it first around 9 this morning, then around 11. Garry did it again adding a path up the driveway to the car and the back deck — just half an hour ago. It’s covered with snow again.
It is snowing very hard, those tiny flakes that mean “serious business” in a snowstorm. Add to that the wind and the thunder and you have … a little blizzard. Little so far. We’ll see how it goes. Could be big blizzard if it hangs around through tomorrow when a second storm is due to arrive.
