We have had more than a week of below zero weather here in western Maine – I am not complaining because that is part of the package we have chosen.
There is a weather system coming up the coast that is supposed to affect us with blizzard conditions tomorrow.
Today temps have come up reaching twenty and tomorrow is forecast at twenty-six; but with snow falls of two to three inches per hour and wind gust up to fifty miles-per-hour.
During the heavy snow there will be whiteout conditions and large portions of the state are expected to be without power as a result of the wind.
This is a hunker-down time. Our wood supply is in, we have plenty of food in the house, a supply of bottled water; and battery, oil and gas lamps. We have done this before.
I got extra gas for the snow blower today; but probably won’t dig out until Friday.
This is unusual weather for this time of year. Temperatures and storms of this nature are common in late January and February – but not this early.
Must watch out for the white walkers tomorrow!
