Well it's snowing hard here! Maybe there is something to the weather casters this time. The wind has been laying the bamboo horizontal all morning, and the bird feeders (some of them heavy) are bouncing so much that the birds won't approach them! Got the flashlights, battery to power the C-PAP, emergency radio and crampons out and organized. We roasted a chicken and made a huge pot of chili with a double batch of cornbread last night, so no cooking necessary for a while. The Weather Service just kicked the phones on with a "Heavy precipitation is spotted in your area!"report! They say that at our location there could be 3/4" of ice on the wires and ground! Whoo Hoo!
