Yesterday

Yep, they predicted a blizzard for yesterday, and that's exactly what we got. It seemed to be even more powerful than the one we got last Christmas, plus it rained a little and left a thin layer of ice on everything first.

Here are a couple of videos to show you how it looked from my perspective, cozy and warm inside the house. Grandpa and the rest of the guys had to work outside (or in the barns) in it all day, of course, because none of the employees could get to the dairy. If you turn your volume waaay up, you can hear what ironically came on the radio just as I was starting the video.

Can't see much, can you? And that was in our somewhat sheltered yard. Out in the open, you could see even less. Grandpa said it was a looong trip to the dairy in the morning, because visibility was zero. But, thankfully, he made it.

Below is a shot from my kitchen window. The "stripes" down the right half are actually reflections from our living room windows. You can kind of make out an evergreen tree, our LP gas tank, and lilac bushes on the left. If you click the pic to enlarge it, you might be able to make out our yard light pole. Or not.
I don't think the cats enjoyed their view much yesterday. Pretty boring.
Here Josie was even EXTRA bored!



She was sleeping. Or faking it. (?)
More pics tomorrow morning......
(I don't know why everything is all scrunched together. I can't change it.)
