Hmm. Sounds like a line from a bad country and western song. :) We were visited by a fierce snowstorm last night that isn’t quite finished with us yet. Another 2-6″ of snow, high winds and much lower temps are forecast for this evening, so a winter storm warning is still in place. Some photos below.
My “significant other”s father had a heart attack yesterday, not his first. He was whisked to a much larger Halifax hospital yesterday afternoon where he will apparently stay for at least a few days. (I’m going to call my “S/O” by name from now on, and that’s Charles or, more often, Charlie — though S/O and “boyfriend” may be politically correct, it seems very high school to me when we’ve lived together for over 10 years.) Charlie and his Mom have set out on treacherous roads for the hospital. He’ll leave his mother there where she has booked a room in a hospital cottage facility, and head back home before darkness falls. Hopefully, his Dad will be feeling better soon and able to come home in a few days.
My daughter’s trip to California has also been delayed by the weather. Her flight to Newark is delayed by almost two hours, which means she won’t be able to make her connecting flight in New Jersey. It could turn out to be a very looong trip before she arrives on the other coast. We’re just hoping that it’s not cancelled altogether as the flight board is a sea of reds and yellows.
You’d never have known by the beautiful sky at sundown last night (below) that a storm was in the making.
But below are a few snapshots of what we woke to this morning. We’re to receive over a foot of snow when all is said and done, and some whiteout conditions this evening.
