WINTER!!!

WINTER!!!
This has been a long winter!!
A very hard winter I might say!

We have had more snow this winter than I can remember and I am sure we will have more snow before spring arrives. Last week the "winter blizzard storm" blew across ole Indiana into other states but before leaving we had a mixed bag. Our winter storm started with a wintery mix of sleet/snow/ice and then more snow. Of course the temperatures had to dip too and here were the winds.

Last Saturday the weatherman really missed his mark! He was predicting 1-3" of snow. No! We got 5-6" of snow on top of the already winter storm mix. It made the morning hours a "white out". It has been so bad because of ice under the snow and no one can see where you might be walking.

The last two days we have been down in the deep freeze with temperatures starting 1-5 degrees and making it up to about 18 degrees for the day. So many are still digging out and trying to not fall.

Schools have been closed because of the ice and the last few days either closed or on delays.

With all said...
Us "Hoosier" are so use to Indiana weather that the saying is...just wait, the weather will change. So yes the change is to come this weekend. Would you believe in the 40 degree temperatures? We all know well, winter isn't over!!

I am sharing with you a few pictures of where I live. I snapped a few pictures of Main Street, USA!! I must say...these pictures don't do justice to how bad our winter storm really was.

Hoping all of you stay warm/well and safe during this hard winter!

Until we meet again...
