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!
