Another Winter Storm Coming Our Way

This winter has been rather calm for us. I am not complaining, I work from home, and rarely go outside. But I do look out of the windows. And my hubby still commutes to work until he retires. We are expecting about 15cm of snow tonight. It is quite cold so the snow will be light and will likely get blown around causing poor visibility. There is snow in our forecast a few times between now and the rest of January. This coming weekend, our sweet little twin granddaughters will celebrate their first birthday. I remember very well, how cold it was a year ago when they were born. A few days after their birth, they were released to the hospital in our son's region. That meant about a 90 minute drive with the preemies and we were experiencing a snow storm. Hospital transfers do not rely on the weather, you go when you are told to go and the receiving hospital has accepted them as patients. I do hope that the weather isn't too terrible this weekend as it is a fairly long drive out to Lake Huron, where our son and his wife and the twins reside. How is your weather lately? ~Photo is mine of a snow storm about 8 years ago

@RebeccasFarm Thank you. My hubby texted me a few minutes ago that he is just leaving work now, but not to expect him on time as the streets look awful and he will be late coming home as a result of the traffic.

Thank you, I feel for the people who have to go out to work and drive on the snow covered roads. I feel lucky to be able to work from home. I hope that we can see the babies on their actual birthday, but with having a January birthday and living in Canada, that may not always happen.

@Juliaacv be safe. Better to celebrate it in a few days later when the storm has passed.

@TheSojourner Yes, right now they are suggesting people not venture out on the roads, but are not closing them-its rush hour for those driving home from work. I imagine that the outlying areas will have road closures later on today, which means if you drive after the sheriff has closed a road you have no insurance.

Yes, this year has passed so quickly for us. I hope that the snow predictions are wrong as I fear that we will not be able to go out to their place as they get such winds off of the lake and it is always so dangerous to drive out there during bad weather.

Our snow did not come last night as they predicted it started just around 6am today. Since y ou have to go out today, I hope that it is a dry day so that you can come and go safely.

Thank you, they are not feeling the greatest. I think that they picked up a cold when they were at their cousin's house for a bit a while ago. Our son wants them to be well before we celebrate their birthday, he worries about us getting sick and he wants the girls to be raised with the understanding that if you are not well you do not have people in or go out.

We will be having a rain storm, I could defintely do without. People in the North know how to handle snow, that doesn't mean you couldn't still be impacted by poor visibility and blowing snow..so lets hope things are under control by the weekend. Looking forward to those twin pics.....

@snowy22315 I am sure that they will be out there next year. They have winter boots, so technically they could be out there in it this year, but they are too small for the temperatures, that could kill them.

Our son texted me that they are snowed in out at their place. Its the winds coming in off of Lake Huron, they are strong and the snow comes along with them. But he did say that Ellie is happy running and jumping around out in the yard.

Hope the snow didn't get too bad there, Today we have a miserabe day ahead with snow, sleet and then rain. Just an overall mess. Hope that the weather cooperates for the twins first birthday this upcoming weekend. Time certainly did fly this year

We haven't had any rain nor sleet, but lots and lots of snow. Our son told me that they are snowed in out at his place. Ellie is outside jumping around in the yard, she loves the snow, and the babies stand at the window and watch her. Next year they will be out there running and jumping around.

I am very grateful that the tornado that hit both south Texas and south Louisiana this afternoon did not cause any blackouts and any damages to my residence this afternoon. Now some cold weather is coming for the rest of the week.

@Juliaacv I am in agreement with you because the weather nation channel mentioned on their steaming channel that the danger from the tornadoes were the high winds that would knockout electrical power in the area which thank goodness it did not happen in my neighborhood other than a brief blackout of the lights for about a few seconds.

Last night's storm was stalled as it only began to snow an hour ago. I hope that they are able to maintain the roads this weekend as there is more days of snow to follow. The year has flown by so quickly.

Yes, that old former farmhouse that stood beside the drift was demolished a year or two after that photo was taken. The drifts that would develop there were huge.

We are used to it, but everyone knows that there is a limit and a time to stay home. I hope that is not this weekend. Last night's snow just started a couple of hours ago, it is coming down quickly, beautiful big fluffy flakes. When the temperatures drop the snowflakes will not look so big and fluffly and be fine and cold snow.
