Permit me, if you will, a rant.

Pretty sure everyone has heard about our weather by now. High winds, blowing snow, very low visibility. Tons of places closed for today, most of them on the list by yesterday evening.

State of emergency declared. Non-essential drivers off the road, please.

Yet not all places closed. The facebook page for our local mall is getting angry comments by the dozen due to the mall being open...even if half the stores said "hey, we're not risking it, we're closing today" when they saw the weather.

Temperature is low, mostly due to wind chill. Snow blowing and drifting. Have yet to see a plow come through, but perhaps even the plows will be giving up.

To anyone who has to be out on these roads, I wish you safe travels. Please get to where you're going and check in with someone waiting for you.

To everyone else...I'll have a much more cheerful post after the storm.

For now, we wait. I'll see about giving updates as long as possible.

Coming up to noon, and the storm continues to rage on. City plow has been through, our personal plow guy has been by. Power stable here, for now.

Apparently the mall may have closed after all, or any non-essential stores did. Places that provide things such as winter gear and supplies are still open for the time being, they plan to close a bit later today.

Both of the other 'rewrite' team members are home safely.

Further updates to follow.

The list of closings has started adding things for tomorrow now. Many schools opting to stay closed.

So far, our city is not among them, but that could change as the night goes on.

Have seen plows come through, our plow guy swept through again, and my neighbor across the street is out with his snowblower. Cleaning up, even before the storm has ended.

Life is like that here, I suppose.

By tomorrow, things should be calmer. I will enjoy that.

After all, I do have to work the rest of the week. It will be a long weekend.

Further updates to come.
