Blizzard Warning Yaaasssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!!!
I remember the blizzard of 1978, it was amazing for a ten year old kid. I’ve never been more excited for horrible weather or prepared. Our winter storm warning has turned full blizzard warning.
With a coming blizzard and knowing how bad the wind moves snow out here in the fields. It is going to get deep in many areas with drifting snow. You would be surprised how well a leaf blower moves powdery snow. We won’t see snow melting temperatures until Tuesday or Wednesday. Surprised we haven’t heard, Bombogenesis.
Make sure you are prepared to be stuck at home for a couple days. The car hood is ready for hoodin’. Check The Blizzard Conditions On The Beach Web Cams
