10F/-12C here. Our forecast for tonight says Snow showers likely before 1am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 0. Wind chill values as low as -12. Northwest wind 5 to 8 mph becoming east after midnight. Chance of precipitation is 70%.
Today wasn't much better. About the same tomorrow.
The medical transportation firm that was going to take Dawn to her Doctor's appointment this morning called and cancelled because the roads were too bad. So I took her North of Holland. 40 to 45 mph all the way there, and 30 to 35 mph most of the way back. Only saw 2 slide-offs - both on the way home.

While our forecast called for a high of 13, we actually made it to 14 today. The cold temperatures and light snow made the side roads really treacherous. Got our running around done, and got home safely. Took Chipper out, and his feet froze. He would raise one foot to warm it, then another, then another......

whether to give up driving, or look for a cheap car, which may well give me the same problems. Prayer will bring me to answer.

Temperature here is at 32F/0C, so they tell us. My thermometer shows 4F, and I know that that is not right, as it showed 27 just a couple of hours ago. Might be time for a new thermometer.
Our forecast says mostly sunny here today, with a high of 38. 39 for a high tomorrow, as the clouds start rolling in for rain tomorrow night and Sunday.

I woke up in the middle of the night to hearing thunder and heavy rain. Went back to sleep and did not crawl out of bed untill 9:30. The sun is shining but really windy. Not sure of the temp but it feel warmer....must be in the 50's. If it stays warmer I will see patches of green grass by the weekend and that would be a welcomed sight for sure.

Lightfoot, just because Nebraska is smack dab in the mid-west doesn't mean a harsh wind couldn't blow snow allll the way to the sea. My dreams are possible.

My point being, the fierce wind blew Dorothy and Toto wayyyy far away. If the wind could blow her and her wee dog all the way from Kansas to who knows where, then the wind can blow snow from Nebraska to the Red sea or to Outer Mongolia. Got it?
