We in New York State are officially in blizzard conditions. It is really bad here, with a storm being called the North Pole Vortex just coming in today. Winds are whipping up in a frenzy. The snow is coming down and over the next 2-3 days, a total of 2 feet is expected. With these “hurricane like winds” the drifts are going to be massive.
But that is not the worst of it. It is the frigid temperatures with the highs tomorrow will only be for the high, below zero. Wind chill factor will be down to -30 degrees. I thank God we have electricity and heat in this house BUT the cats and the horse in the barn next door to me have zero heat. I am doing my best to get these cats through this alive.
I was going to try to take my camera equipment outside but NO WAY. The winds by themselves would tumble my tripod over. And then keeping my camera dry and me unfrozen? No, on either counts.
I took a few photos through our back window. The ones with the RED tent in them, are automatic set at ISO 100. The ones of just the trees are on manual again set at ISO 100.
This is just the beginning, folks. This is an unprecedented storm with the jet air stream from the North Pole dipping down the furthest it ever has. The entire east coast of the United States will be effected, as well as the Mid Western States. If any of you are in the path of this storm, please stay safe and warm!

Stay warm and safe, Sis. Our prayers are with you. Love…..Merry JOY
Thank you, MerryJOY! It will be heading your way as well. YOU keep nice and warm too!! Love, Amy
Yikes… Batten down and button up my friend. Sending warm hugs your way. xXx
Thank you, Jen. I was just going around my house taking pics of the snow plastered on windows. Pretty neat. I plan on putting more photos on tonight just to show everyone how furious this storm is. Fast too. Cars on the road with emergency blinkers on going at a crawl. They are nuts being out. Not ME! HUGS! xxoo
Haven’t been here in many, many days, Amy, handling my own stuff. But wanted you to know am holding you, outside and inside babies, hubs and all in Golden White Light throughout this mess.
I refuse to go into fear for any of you. I see you all still enveloped in God’s Loving warmth peeking out in wonder after the blast has passed, all A-OK! Keep smiling, as your smiles add to the warmth.
Also enlarging the circle to include all of your area.
With my Love, Lin
Lin, it is a mess. Yet, I am actually having FUN taking pictures. LOL The cats next door in the barn…..there again, I refuse to go into fear, but, the temperatures are horrible. Facts are fact. We have blankets stuffed at both doors and hay everywhere, blankets in the hay for nests, you name it. Trying to keep them fed and I go over there twice sometimes three times a day.
Just taking a few photos tonight outside I just about froze.
Love to you!! I’m handling things as well. The energies have been “tough”. But I AM sailing through!!
BIG (((HUGS))), Amy
It seems that we´ll have storms all over the world these days 😉 We had our worst storm even in November, up to 38 m/sand lots of trees will remain on the ground for a long time to come. But we have coped with worse storms – haven´t we?;)
It’s upside-down world now as it normally is here we would have the North Pole weather. My thoughts are with you all.
Inside out, upside down. Nuts. But where will all this bring us? That is the interesting question! xxoo, Amy
We grow even stronger 😉
The Improved Model. 🙂
