We are going to have a Blizzard, beginning late in the evening

on the 13th of March, 2017. 

Wound up with only a few inches of snow,

then it rained,

the wind howled and growled at times.

Most of the snow got blown to the 

West of us. And to the North.

Some places got three feet of snow.

Storm was named Stella.
