Tornado sirens in the winter?
What is it with the weather lately! One day last week I had to break the ice in pond thats in the barn lot (only once so far)! It drops down to freezing one night only to be 60 degrees the next, then yesterday it got up to 63 during the day and overnight went up to almost 70. I was up from 2:00am until 4:00am watching the weather channel because Doppler was showing there were potential tornado's in 6 different areas around and over us and the wind, rain and lightening were so bad! Its odd from where I live you can just barely hear the tornado sirens in the summer, but I learned (last night) in the winter they are more clear. Tonight its getting back down to 19 degrees (closer to normal) but still with the heavy winds. I am not complaining (much) but I have not even bladed the driveway once, you have to have snow to blade, 1/2 inch does not count! I just like normal, what I am used to, what I plan for, is that to much to ask? I like winter, spring, summer and fall to act like winter, spring, summer and fall! I just hope when spring gets here I can plant my garden on time and not be blading the drive or breaking the ice instead, sorry sometimes I rant to much....next post I will not rant....possibly :)
When I went into town this morning there where items laying all around, the above picture was a shed roof that ended up their neighbors yard and three big beautiful trees were broke over in town, just high winds though no tornado. We were lucky (just 3 miles away) and we had nothing destroyed and no trees down.
