This is the visibility level from the truck this morning. It is worse in total white out! But this was good compared to just 5 miles north. Headed to JR's to open the presents...we didn't stay long. The drifts were forming as we visited!
We are just on the edge of this drifts by the house here stands of 4 feet or more.
So, I can't imagine what others are experiencing.
The interstate is closed. So if you weren't where you needed to be last night
you weren't getting there.
So far we have electricity, but others aren't so fortunate. The wind is that of 30 below!!! Can you imagine living in the tepee HA!
OR worse dug into the side of the thankyou...this is as pioneer as I care to experience!
My hats off to the predecessors..they were indeed a spirited tough lot!
Have a terrific holiday and new year!

I got cold just looking at that photo. This is basically what I saw and felt yesterday, and I'm tickled that I am not out in it. Hope you are warm and dry. From the looks of your next post, I would say not only warm, but with a terrific sense of humor.

Merry Christmas! Glad you are safe and warm. I'm in MN and we decided to stay home rather than make the 100 mile drive west.

Hi, Mar! Glad you are safe and warm and didn't get stuck out in the awful weather! :-)
