The House is a Shakin'

They downgraded the wind warning from 65 to 55 mph, but I haven't had the house shake this bad since we moved back from Fairbanks. I'd say the gusts are well above 55 mph. I don't think it is snowing, but the snow is blowing horizontal along the windows. Jeremy is out there shoveling the driveway. Maybe I should have him tie off?

We had a blizzard warning much of the day and it was pretty terrible, near zero visibility at times on the road. They closed the museum early due to the weather, road conditions and projected winds. I hear a number of other activities, college classes, etc. were also cancelled.

And weren't we Kodiak bloggers talking about the unseasonable spring weather just a week or so ago? I am just hoping this snow is insulating the poor perennials that chose to sprout early. My trip to Pasagshak later this week to finish up a few chapters may need to be reconsidered, but that is a few days off. Who knows. My Alutiiq language teacher Nick always says, "March comes in like a lion." I'd say he's right this year.
