It is getting crazy outside. The wind is blowing incredibly hard so I decided I better check on this storm that is headed our way. Here are a few blurbs from the weather channel.
*WIND GUSTS UP TO 80 MPH ARE POSSIBLE IN WIND PRONE AREAS ALONG HIGHWAY 395 AND THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS. ADDITIONALLY...WIND GUSTS OVER THE SIERRA CREST COULD REACH SPEEDS UP TO 110 MPH. THE WINDS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THIS EVENING BEFORE DIMINISHING AS SNOW MOVES INTO THE AREA.
DAMAGE TO TREES...POWER LINES AND PROPERTY IS LIKELY WITH WINDS OF THIS MAGNITUDE.
* TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS: 5-10 INCHES IN THE VALLEYS. 1 TO 2 FEET WEST OF HIGHWAY 395 ABOVE 7000 FEET WITH LOCAL AMOUNTS UP TO 30 INCHES NEAR THE SIERRA CREST.
We live west of 395 and at 7500 feet, for those of you who don't know.
*A VERY COLD AIR MASS WILL MOVE INTO THE AREA MONDAY INTO TUESDAY WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES STRUGGLING TO REACH FREEZING EVERYWHERE. LOW TEMPERATURES TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY MORNINGS HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO BE QUITE COLD...TEN DEGREES BELOW ZERO UP TO 15 DEGREES ABOVE ZERO. THESE WELL BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
Brrrr. I hope they call it a Snow Day tomorrow.
Maybe I'll do some baking.
Edit- They did call it a Snow Day!!!! We have about a foot of new snow. Beautiful.
