Wednesday Weather Report #89 - 1/30/19

We're in the middle of a huge winter storm here in WNY - you've probably heard of the polar vortex slugging towards the east - that would sort of be me.

To look out the window the sun is shining and it's not snowing but there is a swift wind. Yet, 20 miles away there is zero visibility and the wind is just a whipping the snow drifts around causing lots of multi-vehicle accidents and tipping over semi-trucks. The visibility is so bad the firemen are having trouble finding the accident scenes let alone each other. Yikes!

We currently are under a blizzard warning, winter storm warning, wind chill warning, special weather statement and the county sheriff has asked for no unnecessary travel. Did I mention it's a perfectly sunny day outside my office window?? I think tomorrow is supposed to be a lot more of the same. It all depends on those lake effect snow bands - will they hit us or not?

Yesterday I had to run to the local grocer during lunch. A quick peek at the bread aisle showed the supply was a touch thin:

The milk supply was sufficient but the OJ was in short supply, despite it being hard to discern in this stunning photo:

We joke about the french toast effect - mention the word storm and every one stocks up on bread, milk and eggs. I forgot to check on the eggs but it might be funny to go check the same shelves today to see how well they are stocked half way thru the "storm".

Looks a bit different with the 2 reds in there.
Those storms sound shocking. Hope you don't get them.

Well, the sun is not shining here. Since yesterday, I have been in the north band of the Lake Effect. I have over 18" and counting. Not nice here at all. Usually the bands set up south of us. So, I am sewing. And having the grandkids over as they are out of school. Enjoy your sun. Grr.

We had sun this morning with high winds, but around 2pm it start snowing with even worse winds. I touched my heat up a bit just to prevent burst pipes (I don't keep my heat up too high as I prefer it cooler).

Hope the worst of it stays away from you, Sarah!
French Toast Effect--ha ha. I have never heard it called that before, but I don't live in an area that gets hit with that kind of stuff.
Z looks good with a little purple in his fur. You could dye his white fur with a little Kool-Aid. :)

I don't miss that kind of weather! It has been very mild here so far this winter. The plum trees are starting to bloom.

I like that French Toast effect. I’m going to have to remember that.

We're in Houston, TX right now where the temps have fluctuated from the 30's at night to the 60's during the day. So glad we're not in NY for this weather. Fortunately a neighbor is checking on the house (and watering my plants). Going on to FL on Sat.

I didn't realize how small your Temperature project was - so tiny! I hoe it's okay to link up a cross stitch temperature thingy too?
Hope you are safe!
