She blew off the porch

We have a winter storm blowing in from the north. The front of my house faces north and of course Angel had to go outside, right before the wind decided to pick up. Two hours later, I figured she would be ready to come in, because the wind was blowing. something fierce. So I opened the front door. I have a little porch. She tried to jump up onto it from the side and the wind just blew poor little Angel off the porch. Of course she tried again and came on in. Guess I could ask you how your weather is.

Yeah, same here but that's not what Mother Nature has planned.

The city weather sirens were going off a little while ago, waking me from my nap. My phone says there's a Winter Weather Advisory now for icy rain and snow... (We're supposed to be getting up to a foot of snow in the next two days. I hope the snow misses us. It's already raining outside.)

I hate it when that rain turns to ice. Be safe.

@GardenGerty We're planning on staying in the house until the sun melts it all off.

@DaddyEvil We had sun today and it reached 48. I think Monday will be nice as well, which is good as I have a few places I have to go.

We have a winter storm warning in effect. I'm not sure how harsh it will be. Poor Angel!

I think she was embarrassed that it happened. She only weighs about 7 pounds. Small but mighty.

If I had to I would step out and pick her up, but she is fiercely independent.

Here it is, the next day, and she is out again. Waited until 1:30 in the afternoon, though.

I'm glad to learn she's okay. Poor baby. Mine, not so bad. Going to have lows in the fourties, but we are about mid January now so it's to be expected.

Lows in the forties are like our spring weather. She got her dignity ruffled mostly.

Our weather is okay right now just cold and cloudy but snows coming in. I don’t know what it will be tomorrow. Not good I’m afraid.

It has stayed colder today than was predicted. I want to go to church tomorrow but I may not make it.

@RubyHawk Both Bob and I had a restless night and stayed homefrom church. I am not sure what my problem was. I think he is reacting to his booster shot.

@GardenGerty It is not as warm as they announced, but not freezing during the night and nice during the day.

Poor Angel. I've seen chooks/chickens lifted up in the air when a willy-willy (dust devil) hits.

Okay, willy-willy is a new one for me. I remember grandma's chickens somehow getting up in low trees and the flapping and fluttering down. Must be similar.

@GardenGerty A willy-willy is a mini-mini-tornado. Sometimes they're strong enough to pick up a chicken and swirl it around a bit.

You are a bit colder than we are. The snow here stopped but the wind did not. That would be between 8 and 9 degrees F.

She has decided to go out for a while now, in the daylight, in the afternoon. Not so much wind. She only weighs 7 pounds.

She tolerates the cold really well, but that wind was rough.
