Three and a half years after we moved to Illinois, we’ve got our first real snowstorm. WIU is closed. The wind’s blowing so much it’s hard to put an exact figure on it, but I’d say at least eight inches of snow fell overnight–and there’s probably a half-inch of ice under that. And it’s still coming down. Here’s a short silent movie showing the snow falling (MP4, 1.1MB).
I put the same movie on YouTube but it looks terrible.
I left a window open on the front porch. Now I have to shovel my porch. Doh! But once the snowplows have done their work, it’s time to go sledding! Until then, time for coffee and catching up on some reading.
