I'm not getting the fat flakes part, Taxlady. I'm getting howling winds up to 40 mph. This morning it was more rain than snow coating all my windows. Woke up a couple of times during the night wondering if I still had a roof. Afraid to go and check the barns! although they have withstood stronger winds, it is still unsettling.
So even thou it is a balmy 32 F - it is freaking nasty out there!
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
