On Sunday the weather was warm enough to get out and see what was happening in the country. The few country roads I saw were mostly OK with patches of snow and ice on them. The east-west roads seemed to be better than the north-south roads, which had more drifting. Mattheson Street had some drifts that were about a foot deep and to get through them, one had to follow the ruts made by previous vehicles. However, this was on Sunday afternoon before the snow of the evening arrived, before the wind started howling, and before the temperatures began to tank. If the roads were iffy when the conditions were good, what will they be like today?
Parts of Morocco were losing power late on Saturday. Pray that Rensselaer does not.
Update: Last night the wind was howling so loudly that I had a hard time getting to sleep. It sounded as if it were trying to rip the windows off the house.
This morning we have another fine display of sundogs.
