Travel woes

Travel woes have been in the news lately. Storms have closed roads and snarled/canceled/delayed plane flights. This article noted "At the airport in Denver, which was hit with a foot of snow, nearly 500 flights were canceled and another 500 were delayed. On Monday night, 1,000 people slept at the airport. ... Out west, a dangerous storm hit southern Oregon and northern California that meteorologists are calling a 'bomb cyclone' -- a rapidly intensifying winter storm caused by a precipitous drop in atmospheric pressure."


This video showed traffic on Hwy. 405 through West Los Angeles:




Please be safe this week, dear readers.

  1. I'm on the outskirts of Denver. We got about a foot of snow. Very nice. Not too much wind so it didn't drift. That's what does you in, when it drifts up over the housetop in one place yet leaves other areas bare ground. The drifts are always exactly where you don't want it most. :)
    Plenty of hot chocolate, hot beef stew and cinnamon rolls makes everything just beautiful.

  4. Meanwhile here in the Northeast were experiencing mild weather in the mid 50s. Doesn’t feel like late autumn yet, though snow is in the forecast. Climate Changer is an adventure!

  5. After 18" (unusual) in October, the big snowblower came off of the tractor for about a month. It went back on yesterday. We also burned paper, garbage and more wood off a building we are taking down yesterday. After all, if AOC is correct our fire will increase greenhouse gasses, keep the temperature up and it will rain! My hens will be happy and the environment will be safer as we won't be using 7 gal/hr of diesel to free 3 elderly relatives, a neighbor and ourselves when this predicted "Snowmeggedon" from the "Bomb Cyclone" moves through. (No wonder today's kids can't spell - whatever happened to "blizzard"?!)

    Have a safe, warm and blessed Thanksgiving Day with friends and family Patrice and to all of your readers! Natokadn
