Huh. This was unexpected…

I knew it would get nippy overnight, but…


…wasn’t expecting snow, and…


…wasn’t expecting it to get quite this nippy.

I didn’t even have the woodstove set up yet. Happily that doesn’t take long…


Unhappily, this means we’re officially in Winter Mode. For the next five or six months. I hate winter, though not as much as I used to. In two months this’ll seem balmy.

    We got 2-4 inches of snow last night, a whole week earlier that our usual Halloween first blizzard of the season. This was a classic 24-hour blizzard, with strong winds, but once things calmed down, every pine needle cluster is now wearing a white peaked little cap of snow. I built my first fire in the wood stove, so things are toasty. Yes, in a few weeks this 29˚ morning will seem balmy. And more clouds are scooting in over the Divide. Stay cozy.

    Surprisingly, up here north of disorder, we haven’t had any snow yet, while a few friends have. I’m just about finished with the winter preps, so I hope it holds off for a bit. Right now it’s in the low seventies, so I’m off for some e-biking in the sun.

    Heh, yeah it’s cooling down. 19 degrees here in Alaska, gonna snow tomorrow and probably stick until break up.

    What’s the outside sensor or weather station that’s feeding data to the indoor display?

    We’ve had a few freeze warnings and a dusting of snow. Two days ago we hit 76. Sigh. Winter is inevitable. Darnit.

    OT: don’t like ticks? Move to where it gets below zero for at least ten days in a row. Like hereabouts from time to time.

    Yesterday we got a half inch, our first of the season. This morning it was 15… Winter is coming much earlier than last year!

    We’ve known for a long time that there’s an ice age coming, but there’s apparently not enough money to be made from that.
    In deep south Texas, we had days in late August that didn’t get out of the 80’s.

    I saw in the news yesterday that we have a 25-day supply of diesel. There’re some bad times ahead.

    Thanks for the installation tips, but I was hoping for brand name and model number because it looks like one that is simple enough to provide useful data without requiring a degree in statistics to analyze.
