Well, hello frigid weather. Welcome. We are up high in the corner of East Tennessee, just a few miles from Virginia. The weather is always colder and snowier (is that even a word?) across the state line. Today, however we could give them a run for their money. The wind chill warnings were accurate. Congrats meteorolologists, you were not wrong this time!
When we awoke before sunrise this morning the wind chimes were blowing almost violently against the side of our house. Clang, clang, BANG. Clang, clang, BANG.
Harper’s kennel is beside the sliding glass doors in our bedroom and she lay there growling at the chimes, the snow on the deck, or the wind wildly blowing the trees from side to side. It could’ve even been her own shadow. I’m not sure. She’s a little bit jumpier as she has gotten older.
Anyway I took some photos a few minutes ago. The temperature is 5 degrees now with a wind chill of -13 so I wasn’t out there very long. Other than a quick trip down the road to the dollar store I think that I’m probably settled in for the day. For now, chicken is in the instant pot for a casserole later and pre-holiday cleaning and Christmas movie watching has begun.
Where are you located and how’s the weather there? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below. Be safe and have a blessed holiday! 🎄
