Centerport Harbor in Winter

I survived the Bomb Cyclone!

I thought Thunder Snow was a scary term but we really had to brace ourselves for this one!

The past few winters we have had major winter storms with heavy winds.  I bought a generator after Hurricane Sandy but it sits in my garage gathering dust and would not do much if the power went out during the winter.  That is one of those things that a husband is supposed to take care of, but since I am now a widow, I should do something about that.

My back up plan if the power goes out is to go next door with a bottle of wine.  My neighbor has a working fireplace so it’s good to have a plan.

The wind was strong yesterday and lasted for hours.  I went out for an early morning walk today.  It is 11 degrees outside but with wind chill factor it is real feel negative 10-20 degrees.  It is frigid!

But it is also beautiful.  Crazy wind and birds in the storm videos.  Sunshine snow photos to follow.  A few puppy pics as well.  Enjoy…

The strong winds blew the 12 inches of snow off the sand.

    Beautiful patterns in the wind-blown snow… frigid for sure! ❄️🕊

      Thanks for your comment – I know the snow looks so pretty today.

  2. Audrey says:

    The snow looks pretty from inside the house… I give you a lot of credit for getting out there…

    1. runawaywidow says:

      It was really cold. I didn’t stay out very long.

    it looks pretty for sure, but where I live in the Southern Hemisphere in my part of my country we don’t do “snow” – rather we often do Pacific tropical storms or tail-end of cyclones (hurricanes) we had just experienced that in the last few days – summer has taken a nose dive for sure.

      I hope you are enjoying some sunshine down under – missing the warm temperatures!!

        sunshine returned in full bloom on yesterday, so the other problem that occurred when the weather went “belly up” namely began the ditch digging on the property on the wet, wet day – lots of mud everywhere, is not much drier. Still at the drain overhaull, but looks like maybe today they will fill in the ditch – I think waiting for council approval on new layout…- then when that is done – clearing the whole long driveway to put in a new concrete dtriveway pad…hope it is done soon, as my peace/quiet sorely tested.

      2. runawaywidow says:

        I hope they are able to complete the work quickly so that you can get some peace and quiet again, and a safe driveway.

    should count myself lucky, as lovely as it may seem in the video, I’d rather be in Greece.

    1. runawaywidow says:

      Wow – are you in Greece!? I have always wanted to visit Greece. Thanks for visiting my site!

      It is all relative I guess. We are usually cold this time of year, but this is unusually frigid. Thanks for visiting my site.

  6. Natalie K. says:

    Wow, what a wind! I would certainly be panicking a little bit, but it seems you handled it pretty well. I love the after-storm photos, the snow is indeed beautiful. xx

    1. runawaywidow says:

      Thanks for your comment. It was a very windy storm followed by frigid temperatures for a couple of days. Hoping it warms up this week.

  7. I would certainly be panicking a little bit, but it seems you handled it pretty well. Love all your photos!

    1. runawaywidow says:

      Thanks for reading and your kind comments. So fun to take photos of fresh snow.

  8. Saurav says:

    Liked the pics. It is always nice and pleasing to see a bright sunshine in these chilly conditions.☺️

    1. runawaywidow says:

      Thanks. I love going outside and seeing how the light is on the snow.

  9. r0ky24 says:

    Looks cold, but cool at the same time. Don’t know the last time we had so much snow… Or significent amount of snow atleast…

    1. runawaywidow says:

      It was really cold right after that storm. The water is frozen in the harbor which doesn’t happen very often. Supposed to go up to 50 this weekend though. Thanks for reading.

    I love your take on the storm! Our generator, the pretty red one, sits in the garage as well! Beautiful photos and glad Harry got into the spirit of things. I too need a plan for the next big outtage. 🙂

    1. runawaywidow says:

      It gets so windy during these storms I fear the power going out in the winter
