Waiting for the storm

Blizzard comingIt’s been a long wait, but it looks like a good winter storm is on its way.

…LIFE THREATENING BLIZZARD CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED OVER EASTERNNORTH DAKOTA AND NORTHWESTERN AND WEST CENTRAL MINNESOTA…
SNOW WILL COMBINE WITH STRONG WINDS TO PRODUCE BLOWING SNOW ANDLIFE THREATENING WIND CHILLS ACROSS THE AREA TONIGHT THROUGH EARLY MONDAY MORNING. NEAR ZERO VISIBILITY IN WHITEOUT CONDITIONS WILL OCCUR ACROSS ALL OF EASTERN NORTH DAKOTA AND NORTHWESTERN AND WEST CENTRAL MINNESOTA…. 4 TO 8 INCHES …

This can be dangerous. But we’ve been waiting for snow cover to save the septic tanks from freezing in.

It’s time to dig in for a couple of days and ride out the storm.  So V is making a Beef and Chestnut pie (Sorry: I don’t have a link to a recipe. This is one she learned from her sister). We have plenty of food and wine, the chickens have roosted up, and we have the wood in so we’ll start a fire and sleep late.  The Big Freeze won’t start until Monday morning when a cold front sweeps in.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
