December 12th 2010 Blizzard Photos from Wisconsin
My camera | 12-12-10 | Indy Pendance

Posted on 12/12/2010 1:11:47 PM PST by Indy Pendance

Here are some photos of our yard after last night's storm. We got about a foot or so of snow. Perhaps 15 when it's all done. The winds up have gusts to and sometimes exceeding 50 miles an hour today. Post your photos and stories. Luckily no trees fell on wires or our house! And we didn't lose power.

How was your blizzard? We're hunkered down. Hubby cleared what he could out of the driveway and we will have to clean up in the spring. Happy winter everyone!

I am 30 miles west of Chicago. Quite windy and blustery and cold, but no snow or precipitation yet (3:00 P.M.).

Eastern New Mexico. No snow. Only got up to 48 degrees. Have fire in wood stove. Wore heavy jacket, and windpants to go outside. But we’re tough...

Looks like it does here! Beautiful, but the wind is really cold. The dog doesn’t much like going out today! lol
The power flickered but it came back on. I have friends in the West Bend area that were without electricity for awhile.

That last photo, looks like our house a couple years ago until we put up a snow fence. It’s just a mesh thing, but it really helps!

It wouldn’t have been as bad, but we got about an inch of rain before it turned into this mess. The snow just glued onto everything.

Those pictures are stunning and beautiful! Here in Michigan we are getting lots of snow, and with the fireplace burning, and the view outside, I am so content at its magnificence.

Stay safe everyone and keep warm.

We are about 25 miles west of Chicago (darn-near neighbors!), and we took the dogs out to an open field for running this morning around 8:00, and it was plenty windy and chilly, but has dropped about 8 degrees since then as you well know. Our family is hunkered down in front of the television set to watch the Bears play football. I asked them if they'd go to the game if I had free tickets, and they all said, "Yes." Not me ...

Your home is just beautiful. Stay warm. The snow makes everything look so clean and quiet. So far, your pine trees look like they have done well. We always get a lot of breakage.

I think the snow in my back yard is about two feet, if not more. This is on top of the five inches that we got last week. My very kind neighbors always scrape out my driveway with their blade and I am very grateful. I do the clean up and put down some salt. It was a lot of snow! I am in western Wis.

It’s been snowing all day in Michigan and now it’s starting to blow. I’m glad to be hunkered down inside with pumpkin bread in the oven, which is starting to smell wonderful right now!

I’m north of West Bend, south of Kewaskum. All the media was in West Bend because the storm didn’t hit Milwaukee for a juicy story.

How was your blizzard?

We're not having blizzards, but it is cool. Probably won't break 70 degrees today.

Hey gorush! We were expecting the same here but only got a dusting, most of which blew away. I think about you everyweek. I drive out to Sparta and back and usually stop for a rest break at the Mauston Pilot. Have a Merry Christmas.

I’d give a lot to have that snow. I’m watering—in the middle of December in Colorado—trying to keep my trees, shrubs, and plants alive.

Our pines rarely loose anything, except tons of pine cones. This is the first time in 16 years we’ve had this much tree damage. It was really eerry last night. You could hear branches breaking all night. There is a fairly large woods next to our property. All night, snap, crash, snap, crash. I’ve never experienced anything like it before. Thank God no real damage.

“Glue” is right! WHen it rains firs there and the temp drops it is simply icy for weeks.

Up here in NW WI, we didn’t get the ice, so there’s nothing so purty to take pics of. Just about a foot more snow than there was yesterday morning.

My neighbor plowed out my driveway this morning, though! I was all set to get offended, but he said he didn’t want to have to chip me out after I’d frozen into a popsicle while trying to blow out the snow in the -40 wind chill. They don’t drink, so I guess I’ll have to smoke them some ribs or something.

Thanks. When we bought this house, the inside was straight out of a 70’s movie, that can be fixed. It was the yard that sold us, 2 acres. We still have a harvest gold bathroom. You can change the shag carpet, you can’t change your view.
