The Five of Us, Spring 2014

The Five of Us, Spring 2014

Is This Narnia or Mason?!

Remember how in Narnia it was never-ending winter? I think the White Witch has taken up residence in very-northern Wisconsin. We are under a WINTER STORM WARNING today! I can't believe it, but here's the prediction from weather.com....

...WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM THIS MORNING TO 6 AM CDT TUESDAY...
A WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM THIS MORNING TO 6 AM CDT TUESDAY.
LIGHT SNOW WILL SPREAD ACROSS PINE COUNTY MINNESOTA AND ALL OF NORTHWEST WISCONSIN LATE THIS MORNING...BECOMING HEAVY THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF 3 TO 6 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON...WITH ANOTHER 3 TO 5 INCHES TONIGHT. TOTAL ACCUMULATIONS OF 6 TO 11 INCHES ARE EXPECTED. IN ADDITION...NORTHEAST WINDS WILL INCREASE TO 20 TO 30 MPH THIS AFTERNOON...WITH LOCALLY HIGHER GUSTS...ESPECIALLY NEAR LAKE SUPERIOR. ALTHOUGH THE SNOW IS EXPECTED TO BE WET AND HEAVY...AND THE ROAD SURFACES SHOULD BE RELATIVELY WARM...TRAVEL IS EXPECTED TO BE VARY HAZARDOUS DUE TO REDUCED VISIBILITIES TO LESS THAN ONE QUARTER MILE AT TIMES IN THE HEAVIEST SNOW BANDS. STRONG WINDS WILL ALSO CAUSE AREAS OF BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW...LIKELY RESULTING IN SNOW COVERED AND SLIPPERY ROADWAYS.
A WINTER STORM WARNING MEANS SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF SNOW ARE EXPECTED. STRONG WINDS ARE ALSO LIKELY. THIS WILL MAKE TRAVEL VERY HAZARDOUS OR IMPOSSIBLE.

Why oh why? Isn't it April tomorrow? Do April SNOW showers (or storms!) still bring May flowers? I sure hope so!

Talk To Me

I blog for myself and my kids and I would do it even if no one else cared, but I do like to hear from you (and think it's a wee bit creepy of you to voyeurize us without my knowing it). So, please leave a comment from time to time, or email me anytime at xawilsons@hotmail.com. Much obliged, I'm sure.
