Hang on to your hats

The wind began to switch, the house to pitch
And suddenly the hinges started to unhitch
Now just add snow.

Not much sign of an impending blizzard in town just before heading home, 12 minutes away, but oh what a difference those 12 minutes can make. I removed the wind chimes and wreath and brought them in, just in case. Laura closed the garage door for the dog and the cat, so they can keep warm and so that too much snow doesn't blow in.

Fortunately, I had a great big box from BookCloseouts to carry into the basement, which helped me from blowing away.

And it's only the beginning. Oh my stars.
