Adversity!!

   
we are about to face crisis....jus an hour or so...we are away snow storm which has already created a havoc in other areas....the weather channel has been appealing people to prepare themselves for storm.....
A snowstorm that's expected to bring up to 5 inches to parts of the Lower Peninsula is making driving hazardous across Michigan..
its supposed to be heaviest snowfall ,all past records to be broken as per jan 2005...
Temperatures below freezing and wind gusts of up to 30 mph will accompany the storm.Local 4 Casters are reporting that the storm is expected to include "considerable blowing and drifting snow" in the southern and central parts of the state....
A high pitch drama...
The weather service said the heavy snowfall combined with high winds could create whiteout conditions, particularly on Tuesday night into Wednesday, making driving extremely dangerous in some areas. Snow drifts of 5 feet to 10 feet are possible.
Once the storm has moved through, bitterly cold temperatures are expected to grip much of the region. The weather service said wind chills as cold as 40 degrees below zero could hit parts of North Dakota and South Dakota....

• Between 1 and 2 inches of snow are expected to fall overnight and into Tuesday morning

• Snowfall is expected to begin between 7 and 10 p.m. Tuesday in metropolitan Detroit, around midnight for the Thumb region

• Peak intensity will be between 11 p.m. Tuesday and 10 a.m. Wednesday, with heavy accumulation near the morning rush hour

• Snow could fall at a rate of 1 to 2 inches an hour at the storm’s peak around dawn on Wednesday

• Snowfall should end by Wednesday afternoon

• A total of 10 to 15 inches is possible

• Heavy snow and high winds could cause power outages, and force travel delays and building closures

• Strong winds will create significant blowing and drifting, reducing visibility

• Wind chills will be in the zero range....


preparation in case of power outage,fire places and logs of woods....enough groceries and winter clothes...
getting gas cylinders filled up....for emergencies!emergency lights or candles....and enough water or igloo to be stored....for unseen storm hitting Michigan and related places!!

Get the fuel ...filled in cars..for emergency purpose.....
take care and God Bless!

I guess we both will be facing the same storm... it's already pretty bad here... I woke up this morning and I knew there is no way in hell I will be able to get my car out of driveway so decided to work from home instead!!!

We already have about 35 cms... and it won't stop snowing for about 6 more hours!!

The wonders of nature! Drifting snow is making driving almost impossibly safe... so may cars on the highway are stuck in a ditch with rescue wait times up to 1 hour 45 mins...

Hope you stay out of trouble... curl up in front of the fireplace and read a classic book... Enjoy the day... i guess it's nature's way of telling us to relax and enjoy life
