Well we're getting our first big winter storm right now. Temps today fell from a high of 38 down to 14 right now as I type this at 10:23 PM Eastern. The wind speed indicator on my weather station is entirely inaccurate because of where it is placed. My Weathersnoop recap reports the biggest gust being 16 mph, but I KNOW it was more than that. Believe me, I was out blowing snow from the driveway and it was way more that 16 mph.

The snow we received last night started to turn to slush because of the rising temp, making it heavy and stiff for shoveling and snow throwing. Speaking of that, I bought my first "real" snow thrower today. It's a 2 stage, 26" cut Craftsman. Got it used for a great price and she runs great.

We are presently under a Winter Storm Warning. Besides clearing a path for the mail carrier, I'm not going to worry about the driveway. The street crews don't seem to be concerned. I think they are waiting out all the snowfall before attempting to clean up the streets too much.

Part of me wants to ride over to Lake Superior and see the waves on a night like this. Then I come to my senses. :)

Stay warm!

I see you are having heavy snow. Doesn't look like venturing weather.

Nothing like getting that PWS on a pole on the roof or somewhere it can measure the winds!
