We are getting a snowstorm today. The temps are in the upper 20s, and it's supposed to snow and snow all day and all night and maybe even a little tomorrow morning. Then sometime tomorrow, the remnants of a tropical storm are supposed to hit. A tropical storm! What's up with that? This will turn our snow into rain, and lots of it. The temps will go up until they hit the low 50s on Monday. And the wind is gonna blow, and blow, and blow.
We are beginning to understand that the weather here is very changeable. The forecasts can change drastically even within 24 hours. But this is ridiculous! LOL We're also coming to understand that a storm here usually just means wind and rain. In Texas it meant wind, rain, thunder, lightening, hail, flooding, and possibly a tornado or two. But here it's "just" wind and rain. Just wind that blows down towering evergreens that have been growing for decades and are several feet around in circumference and taller than two of your two-story house. I've never heard anything as scary as huge trees popping in half like they are toothpicks. They pop loud, and if they're near your house, it's really loud! But it's just wind and rain - something I thought was pretty tame in Texas. I was wrong.
I've got to go. I have a busy day ahead, and a busy week. I'm hosting our annual Ladies' Christmas Brunch at our home next Saturday. Today I still have to finish getting my Sunday school lesson ready, including deciding on a craft to do. I also need to sit down and get on paper my plans for next week so I don't come up struggling and panicked on Friday! Have a great weekend!
