The snow started early this a.m. and by 9 when I went out to measure, we had only 1/2 inch, but it's snowing quite hard and steadily, and it's cold, so it's going to build up - up to perhaps over two feet, according to forecasts. Right now the snow is falling straight down - no wind at all, and it looks very peaceful out there. Being this cold (20 degrees now) when the wind does pick up, the snow will be very light and that will mean blizzard conditions with lots of drifting and poor visibility.
I heard from Carol Byrd this morning that her mother-in-law, Ethel, passed away on Sunday. Ethel was 96 and died at Woodridge Nursing Home, but had been living with Carol and Larry here at Joe's Pond and in Florida for the past five years. If you wish to send condolences to Larry and Carol, their address is: 249 Jasper St., Largo FL 33770.
