The Weather Witch

I have been told that I am a weather witch, a purveyor of the elements. Strange weather events take place where ever we live. Somehow I maneuver the climate. Like the blizzard that blew into Colorado Springs last evening through this morning…

Silver the weather witch

The winds blew hard, battering the north side of the house. Boards creaked and groaned as the upstairs part of the house swayed in the wind.

Snow flew sideways down the road. The cold winds of autumn blew the early snow into drifts deep enough to swallow a man.

Great clumps of cold, wet snow filled the glass on the windows making it impossible to see outside. A dark gloom settled within the house.

Hard icy pellets of snow battered the back door.

The wind blew harder, burying everything in its path in a silent white death. Iceย daggers hung from the shutters on the house.

Suddenly, the sky cleared into a deep crystal blue while the snow crystals glistened on the drifts below.

Winter is Coming

Truth be told… it’s not even winter yet!

Thanks for stopping by. I’ll see you all again!

  1. Well, here in on the outskirts of not so sunny Scarborough in Yorkshire we have had extremely heavy rain again tonight and the wind picks up and then drops again. It’s picking up again at the moment. I think this damn storm is now called Barney.
    As for snow, I love it and we haven’t seen any for a while. I love to walk in it, play in it, build snowmen and take photographs of it. So Mrs Weather Witch will you please send some of the white stuff my way.
    Then when we are snowed in I can blog about it and post lots of pictures of it. Winter isn’t winter without snow, ice and frost.
    Stay safe everyone and enjoy. xxxx

  2. I’m with Sue! You made the snow sound magical and enticing, but things tend to grind to a halt over here and we’re not geared up for the snow. I, too, have a love/hate relationship with it. If I could stay inside by a warm fire, I’d be happy! Unfortunately I often have to venture out and the craziness begins! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. I so agree with you. I remember it snowed on RAF Lakenheath when I was there. Everyone freaked out. Although your bone chilling cold is equal to our cold here. Everything stopped here too. Schools, businesses, and even the interstate highway was closed. A bad storm all around. Stay warm and safe. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

  3. We’ve had those kind of winter days here in TN. Not too many years ago snow & a freeze caused trees to snap into. You could hear it in the house, the snap & then the fall. In IN a snow fall helped sell shirts imprinted with I survived the blizzard… The snow drift covered the entrance to our front door & drifted up the wall to the second story. Still, it never lasts long. I recall watching for snow over the years the best time for watching snow fall is at night, it looks like diamonds.

    1. Even after living in Wisconsin as a child and then in Montana for 17 years, I don’t think I have saw such a blizzard. Our housing area is brand new so the snow was propelled across the prairie. There are 8 to 10 ft. drifts in some areas. All in all, I think we got around 10 inches of snow. The bad thing is all the shovels and snow blowers are sold out! Sometimes you just have to laugh! LOL!

    1. I know. We didn’t even have a shovel. I had to borrow one from a neighbor to get out the driveway to go buy a shovel! All the stores are sold out of shovels and snow blowers! We are definitely getting a snow blower, though. It was heavy and wet and Ron is a 100% disabled veteran. He had to help me, it was so heavy. Oh, well. They will restock. I missed the snow so much. I would rather be here than in all the heat and humidity. ๐Ÿ˜€
