Yep. I just hope my poor Purple Sandcherry survives.

Of course, the dog thinks I should be playing with him instead of taking pictures of ice covered objects in the backyard.

Yikes! Your icy photos made me shiver!

Today we are having some really spooky unnatural weather. In the south we have 'hurricane weather' - days of warm, humid, gusty weather with ominous gray/black clouds and a sense of impending menace - very 'close' weather.
On Dec. 22 our high temps should shatter all records - it was 69 F when I got up, and going to hit 79 F this afternoon! I can't remember an Xmas season this strange ... meteorologically speaking ...

Oh, beautiful dog, Red! Hope your sand cherry survives. We haven't lost any trees (yet), but a lilac is in danger and some others have come down in our neighbourhood.

Sitting here in a pair of shorts and about to go outside and read my Kindle on the deck. That should tell you everything you need to know about the weather in Tidewater.

Same as weather in NC!

Reading my Kindle outside under the palm trees. I earned this having driven 1200 miles and over many snow-covered, icy mountain passes to get here (-9 the morning I left La Grande, Oregon). Worth it.

We certainly have some warmth to share. It's currently 84 "feels like" 86° F.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

This blog post says it all: http://www.blogto.com/city/2013/12/3..._to_ice_storm/
Fortunately, I'm downtown, which was spared the worst of it - I had to scrape some ice off the sidewalks, but never lost power (so far). But there's no salt left in the stores, so that's the best I can do.

We lost power for 24 hours, but it's back now. I could not find salt but got some sand to at least provide some grip. I did however see my next-door neighbour return from grocery shopping (Food Basic's I think) and there were bags of salt in his trunk...

Of course, as I typed this the lights did flicker, but the UPS kept all going!

I am officially annoyed.

Temperature: -32.4C
Wind: SE 32km/h
Windchill: -49C

The temperature is up from the overnight low of -33.9C. Oh, and the sun will rise in about 15 minutes.

I couldn't even get sand this morning. I'm thinking of untarping and emptying the Spawns sandbox...

I had two 20kg bags of salt before the storm, but I have elderly relatives who are none too steady on their feet in the best of weather so it's gone now.

We're having strong winds/gale. The peak is supposed to be tonight, but I'm a little worried since I have to bring my bike to the repair shop tomorrow morning and it's about 9 km from my place.
I guess I'll see tomorrow if it seems safe to ride there.
