Somehow I had missed it...all the warnings leading up to today.
Certainly, Friday -- word began to register.
A. Blizzard. Is. Coming.
So, like any good Wisconsinite -- I went to the grocery store.
Beef stew, cocoa, more cocoa....
And, it is here.
Snow - and plenty of it.
Winds arriving next.
Then cold, cold, cold.
Living in the country - you just have to wait it out.
If winds are coming, no need to get too excited about shoveling...
the gusts will come across the fields and move it all around anyway.
Wait it out.
So, I climbed thru drifts out to the barn this morning.
Making sure every kitten was accounted for --
they would be in way over their little heads in this snow fall.
Milk, cat food, hay for the goats --
and today a space heater in a little "warm me up" spot
for the cats. Come on, I do have a heart.
It is here -- we hunker down, and wait.
Will it make the record books?
Are you hunkered down too?
Shall we say - BLIZZARD.
Here is Dave hidden behind mounds of snow cleaning up.
My job was to dig a path out of the barn for the animals.
SNOW - and lots of it!!
