Winter Wallop

These were excerpts from yesterday’s local weather forecast:

Residents are preparing for another winter wallop. (love that wording!) 

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for most parts of southern Wisconsin on Thursday evening.

Thursday night will be cloudy and windy with snow developing.  The snow might be heavy at times and isolated thunderstorms are possible.

 … blowing and drifting snow is possible. Total snow accumulations will hover been 6 to 12 inches.

Here is what actually happened:

snowed-in patio tableI guess I won’t be dining alfresco for awhile, which I really love doing.  That looks like a good 12 inches, doesn’t it?!

dave blowing snowDave was having fun with his new snowblower, but he’s happy to be thawing out now.

snowy treesThe spruce trees hold the snowy frosting well.

snowy greeneryWe have better curb appeal now with the snow dusting our Christmas greenery.

I love winter but so far, I’m happy to watch the magic of snow turn the outdoors into a winter wonderland from the warmth of my cozy house.
