Freaky Weather and House Update

Oh so much better!


We ran about 2 boxes short of finishing the “old” side of the kitchen and doing all the ‘hand cut’ pieces before the crown molding.

The dining room is done except for edge pieces that need to be handcut.

I was trying to keep my sense of humor while I did inside projects to stay out of the weather and get over my bronchitis. That’s the glue on the back of one of the ceiling tiles.

I loved how the snow was sticking to the light pole in a straight line. This was really wet snow and with the wind blowing was al over the place. I love this tree across the street. It always makes me think Christmas ~ even in mid April.
This was the 3rd time he’d shoveled the driveway in the last 24 hours. I had to laugh this time ~ just after he finished the plow came by and did the street and he had to do the bottom all over again.

Is it really spring?

It just keeps getting better and better – NOT – LOL – now they added wind, centered it directly over us and increased the amount of snow tonight…
EXPECT PERIODS OF WET SNOW TO CONTINUE THROUGH TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND FALL HEAVY AT TIMES. BY THE TIME THE SNOW ENDS TUESDAY EVENING… EXPECT A STORM TOTAL SNOWFALL OF … 14 INCHES. THE HEAVIEST SNOW IS MOST LIKELY OVER HIGHER TERRAIN NORTH OF CRYSTAL FALLS AND IRON RIVER. THE COMBINATION OF THE WET HEAVY SNOW AND WIND GUSTS OF 15 TO 25 MPH TONIGHT INTO TUESDAY COULD DAMAGE TREES AND PRODUCE POWER OUTAGES.

Enough is enough already…

Enough is enough already. I signed on to check out this week’s weather and the bright flashing winter storm warning caught my eye. Needless to say, I am less than thrilled with reading this… THE LIGHT SNOW ON MONDAY MORNING WILL TRANSITION TO A HEAVY… WET SNOW MONDAY AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING. THE SNOW MAY BE MIXED WITH RAIN AT TIMES THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING… ESPECIALLY OVER THE LOWER TERRAIN. BY THE TIME THE SNOW ENDS TUESDAY AFTERNOON… LOOK FOR STORM TOTAL SNOWFALL AMOUNTS OF UP TO AND AROUND A FOOT INTO TUESDAY AFTERNOON THE HEAVY WET SNOW COULD DAMAGE TREES AND PRODUCE POWER OUTAGES.
I’m glad we still have indoor projects to do!

Thank Goodness today’s project keeps me Indoors

From weather.com:
ARCTIC HIGH PRESSURE DROPPING FROM CENTRAL CANADA INTO THE PLAINS STATES WILL BRING A REINFORCING SHOT OF BITTER COLD AIR INTO THE UPPER GREAT LAKES REGION THROUGH THURSDAY. THIS BITTER COLD AIR MASS ALONG WITH AN INCREASE IN NORTHWEST WINDS THIS AFTERNOON WILL DRIVE WIND CHILL VALUES INTO THE 25 TO 35 BELOW ZERO RANGE OVER WEST AND CENTRAL UPPER MICHIGAN. EXPECT WIND CHILL VALUES TO TUMBLE INTO THE 35 TO 45 BELOW ZERO RANGE TONIGHT AND THURSDAY MORNING AS THE CORE OF THE ARCTIC AIR MASS DRIFTS OVERHEAD. I’m sure glad I don’t have to leave the house today, my boots are only rated to 30 below – LOL. I think I’ll go get another cup of coffee.
