Blizzard in the Texas Panhandle

P1070970 P1070971P1070972We have been under snow warnings before and the weather services and our local weatherman would tell us we were going to get a lot of snow. And either the Low pressure would go the wrong direction too far north or too far south and we would be left high and dry. In fact we joke a lot around here that the weatherman is the only job where you can be wrong 90% of the time and still keep your job. For the last few days they have been forecasting a blizzard warning for us well this time they were right we have winds blowing 45 to 50 mph and heavy snow. Yesterday the temp was up to 60 degrees then last night the temps dropped and the wends picked up and now we have over a foot of snow on the ground with snow drifts up to 4 feet deep. As I am writing this it is around 10:00 in the morning and the storm is supposed to last until sometime tomorrow. We definitely need the moisture for we have been in a drought for several years now in fact there is a lake northeast of us that at one time was 99 feet deep at the dam and as of yesterday it was 28.45 feet at the dam so all this snow will help, I would prefer it to be rain but we will take whatever the Lord gives us.

  1. Thank you for posting this. When I first read the news about Amarillo I thought of you guys and wondered if you were stuck in the middle of it. I was hoping you were on one of your two week cruises so that you could avoid it all but like you say you did need the water.
    Take Care, stay warm and safe.
