Snow is falling, the wind is howling, trees are cracking, and I'm shocked we still have power. Last night we got about 5" of accumulated snow over the course of about seven hours. Today we've had that much again in half that time. The wind is really violent and there is little visibility.
For anyone interested in statistics the current rate of snowfall is approximately 1-3" per hour and the temperature is 22F (-6C) with a wind chill of 6F (-14C). The wind is blowing at 30 mph. We can expect anywhere from 13" to 19" of snow before the storm is over.

While I'm at it, here's last night's progress on "Rose Cuttings." I should finish the small rose and the buds tonight. I might even get back to the stems and leaves.
I hope everyone in this line of storms stays safe and warm!
