Dec 26th blizzard

well, hmmm. Is this a blizzard? Technically? Nobody looked it up but we all think it is. And it’s funny, because big accumulations are rare here with all the water around. But – Dec 26th, 3:30 pm – here’s the depth as per Dad’s ruler on the back deck. And thanks to Ed for fixing the wireless router!

My sister, Snow Shoveling Team 1, 2 and 3 so far. She’s loving it. Finally, Rachel, polishing her levitation trick. Ex-lent.

Wii are having fun!

  1. FWIW, the following definition comes from Wikipedia:

    A blizzard is a severe storm condition characterized by low temperatures, strong winds, and can include heavy snow. By definition, the difference between blizzard and a snowstorm is the strength of the wind. To be a blizzard, a snow storm must have winds in excess of 56 km/h (35 mph).[1] Additionally, blizzards must reduce visibility to 400 metres (1,300 ft) or less and must last for a prolonged period of time — typically three hours or more.[2][3] Ground blizzards are a variation on the traditional blizzard, in that ground blizzards require high winds to stir up snow that has already fallen, rather than fresh snowfall.

  2. … And it looks like folks had fun, despite the blizzard, snowstorm, or frozen-water-from-the-sky.

  3. Thanks, Johnny! Using that definition, we DEFINITELY had a blizzard in Delaware yesterday. And indeed, we had fun. Lots of food and drink and merrymaking. Merry Christmas!
