It was a very cold day on the first day of winter. Temperatures were below zero and the wind chill dropped it even further. Despite the winter chill, I had to run some errands and do laundry. I pulled out my winter gear and bundled up. This kind of day makes me thankful that I have a warm place to sleep and live in.
We had blizzard-like conditions with the high winds and blowing snow. I was going to head to the 4Q to check out the yarn sale at the shop there. There was no way I was going to risk traveling outside of town once I looked out my window this morning. The video is taken from my living room window.
It snowed like crazy yesterday and overnight. The result was icy, unsafe roads this morning with some drifting going on.
So, the campus decided to close this morning at 10 am. I did get to meet some people in the short time we were open. On the way back home I stopped at Walmart for a few grocery items I forgot when I did the big shopping trip over the weekend. When I got back to my apartment, the parking lot was cleared.
Now I’m sitting in my living room enjoying the view out my window. The apartment building is on the south edge of town and across the street is miles of horizon. Can’t beat the view! Think I’ll brew up some hot tea and get cozy with a good book this afternoon.
Here are a few pictures that I took this morning before cleaning off the car and heading to work.
This is the outside of my apartment, my little red car covered in white, and a barn across the street from where I live. Very wintry scene!
