Yesterday was warm, almost 80. Overnight it got cold. This morning it started snowing. By the time I got out of here, at noon, it had turned pretty much into a blizzard out there.
The temperature has now fallen to 29. I just heard a long screeching skidding noise out there. The snow continues to fall fast, being blown horizontal by the wind.
Just looked out the window. The snow is starting to stick. This is going to pile up fast now unless the snow stops.
When I escaped here it was to go to the Post Office and Wal-Mart. I have never seen the Wal-Mart/Sam's Club parking lots so full. Inside the store it was a zoo. I don't believe I've ever seen it so busy.
The blowing blizzard added an almost surreal element to the throng of last minute Christmas Eve shoppers.
One thing I'm not understanding is I've still not had to turn on the heat in here. Has that icy water swimming done something dire to my internal thermostat?
Below is a YouTube video of part of my drive to Wal-Mart through the blizzard.
