If you seek a pleasant peninsula, you might want to head to Florida this morning. If you can get there from here, that is.
All of West Michigan is having some difficulty in travel today. Yesterday we had that nice, if brief, January Thaw – and over night Old Man Winter roared back in – in less that 4 hours we had dropped from 47 balmy degrees to temperatures in the single digits – with below zero wind chills.
Thunder was replaced with gale force winds that raced around my condo all night.
All that rain – flash frozen on the roads.
But the precipitation did not stop – the rain changed to snow and that is now still falling. The winds are still howling and they are causing large snow drifts to pile up in open spaces.
No school for the kids today – and no school for the mom either!
As you can see – the snow is covering windows, siding, bushes, any nook or cranny it has been driven in to.
So, I might have to sit down with Alice today and see if I cannot fill up some more of these….
Have Baby Alpaca – will spin! And, look – an empty bobbin to fill!
Hopefully the “cleaning lady” will have her work done shortly and I will be able to devote the afternoon to some one on one time with dear Alice!
Stay warm and safe today, gentle readers!
