Got a wind warning on our emergency alert earlier this evening. Didn’t seem like much was happening, though. Went to bed.
Woke up to howling wind. Not just wind. Full-on blizzard! It’s a white-out. Can’t see to the end of the block. Houses have disappeared in the white.
Then the power went out.
Winds approaching 100 km/hour.
Emergency alert issued for all of southern Saskatchewan.
Been blowing now for at least two hours. No sign of letting up.
Howling under the eaves.
Emergency alert forecasts it should let up sometime after midnight, but will be blowing snow all day tomorrow.
