Looking Past the Front Yard Gate To the Sheep Barn Yesterday Afternoon
Because we're in such an unpopulated area, our online weather comes from either 25 miles to the north or 60 miles to the south. Despite the further distance, the southern forecasts are usually more accurate so I pretty much always rely on them.
Yesterday our predicted snow accumulation went from three to four inches down to just one to two inches, much to our relief. But when it became increasingly apparent that we had more than two inches of snow piled up out there no matter how or where you measured it, and it was still heavily falling (I believe the technical term used by the professional weather people to describe what was going on was "freezing snow fog,") Joe had the brilliant idea to check the northern forecast. Aha. Five to six inches.
We ended up getting about nine inches of snow in less than six hours. This is pretty unusual for us, especially in very late February.
Looking Ahead To Last Night
You might even say it was something worth celebrating.
