Mmmm....Blizzard!

I love Blizzards. The ice cream treat, not the snow storm. Unfortunately, it is way too cold outside to justify purchasing a Blizzard treat. That is why today I didn't get the ice cream treat. That and the fact that I got the real thing. {brrr}

Last night the wind blew and blew and blew. It blew so hard that I thought our roof was going to come flying off! It continued to blow well into the morning. Then it started to BLIZZARD! I of course was driving on the freeway...not a good idea. I was going maybe 35 MPH. This made a lot of people behind me angry, but when you can't see anything in front of you, why go fast??

My husband said that a guy called in to the radio station that he was listening to, and was stuck just past the last Payson exit going NB on I-15, and that he had been there since 11 AM (at this point it was around 2:30 PM). Poor guy! He was stuck in between two semi trucks that were stuck. He wasn't stuck in the snow, but he couldn't go anywhere because the semis were.

This is the snow perma-stuck to my back door windows. My back door opens out onto a covered porch. Just shows you how bad it had to have been snowing to get my windows all covered!

Now, you can't probably tell, but it really is snowing really bad in this picture! This is the view out the dining room window. It was the best shot I could get of how bad it was snowing, and you can't even hardly tell. Just take my word for it.

Hey! We had a blizzard just like that one where I live!! Weird stuff huh? I'm not fond of it and would rather eat a Blizzard any day!
