Evolution of a Blizzard

The big Nor’Easter has arrived. Let the Blizzard begin!

When we first heard about it a few days ago, it wasn’t supposed to start til tonite and even then it was only a 50/50 chance it would actually snow. By Friday the weather forecasters were calling it a sure thing. PennDOT started prepping the roads. I went to bed around midnight, and there was no snow. I woke up at 8:30 to a good dusting, maybe an inch or just a half.

8:45 a.m.
The backyard.

The flakes are little, and a lot of it is just blowing around, like what Lily is checking out here in the bay window.

10:15 a.m.
You can still see the grass but definitely less of it.

12:10 p.m.
Not as much of a difference as I would expect after two hours and a bout of bigger flakes…

Lunch. Mmmm mmm good.

1:30 p.m.
… and an hour later, the grass is covered. Still not as bad as everyone predicted. Yet.

Cars look so funny when people do this. But, it does make it possible to use the windshield wipers which is definitely good.

The snow plow has come around three times already, and the last time he looped around to get both side of the street. The last time it snowed they didn’t come around til the next day!

4:15 p.m.
The sky is more overcast. It’s also getting close to sundown (I hate that about Winter!) but it’s gray, not dark. We’ve got six inches so far.

(Yes, that’s my “Hillary for President” campaign ruler.)

5:30 p.m.
Still snowing. 6.5 inches. Snowflakes really small, almost like tiny sleet.

7:45 p.m.
Still snowing. Eight inches.

10:30 p.m.
11 inches. I think it has stopped.
