The Great Blizzard of 2014

12 Below Zero and Falling Fast--Wind Chill  at 35 Below Zero

Here are some pictures of the storm.  How can anything so deadly be so beautiful?

It's been awhile since we've been this far below zero.  The heater was a bit behind with the sunrise--but still kept the house at 68 and a fraction.  Now that the sun is up and firing through the many windows, the furnace is catching up.  The wind is the problem, probing for weakness in the best insulated of homes.  It will not ease for a few days according to the weather man.  We have seen it this cold before--but it is supposed to go as low as 16 below.  Right now the snow has stopped and the landscape is flooded with sunlight--I'll follow up in a bit.
