Blizzard Conditions

The storm started out as rain and then switched to blowing snow. Roads are snow packed and limited visibility due to blowing snow. Interstate 70 is closed from Salina west to the Colorado border.

The best way to watch the storm is from inside.

Of course Wylie and I can’t stay in too long.

Out of the wind it was rather pretty.

So looking forward to spring!!!

Another Round Is Coming

The national weather service has issued a blizzard warning for our area. 6-10″ of snow with wind gust up to 50 mph. I can’t wait!! With that forecast, Wylie and I loaded up and hit the backroads.

Going to keep watch on this nest.  When we were at the lake we saw many eagles standing out on the ice near open water.

Beautiful Sunrise Prelude To A Snow Storm

I’m going to be wary of beautiful sunrises!! The weather system started as rain and changed to snow.  I think we had 5″.  It love being outside when everything is covered with snow, it’s SO peaceful and calming, as long as the wind isn’t howling and I’m all bundled up and not freezing.

No patio dining.

Beautiful Sunrise

I love sunrises. Mornings are my favorite time of the day! I also like afternoon and sunsets and stars. I really like all the day!

It’s was a beautiful start today.

Makes one wonder what the weather has planned for us. There is snow in the forecast. Hopefully it won’t be like the blizzard that we had a few days after Thanksgiving.

More Snow – Photos

I had planned on going back out this morning to get some more photos of the snow covering the trees.  The snow fell so gentle and blanketed the trees, they looked like  flocked Christmas trees – only much better!!  We ventured out early, but the wind came up and it was more like a blizzard, so enjoy these photos from yesterday.

Native (some say invasive, but I like them!) Red Cedar

I don’t know what model this old red truck is, but it was so pretty in the snow.

 

 

Typical Autumn Day In Kansas

It’s a beautiful autumn day, or maybe a winter day. Started snowing early this morning and has been snowing all day.

Snow roses

Dinner tonight won’t be on the patio.

Wylie likes to ride with his head out the window.
