Well, we’re in for another one of those wintry mixes here at Schloss Bodissey. According to the forecast, it will start as snow and then switch to sleet later tonight, with 1″-3″ (3-7 cm) of the mix by morning. There will be more of the same tomorrow, adding another 1″-3″, with the possibility of a layer of freezing rain on top of it.
It’s that last part that made me fill up the bathtub tonight and top up the drinking water containers.
The snow has already started. It’s very cold here, and the snow is dry. The rain is not supposed to arrive tonight, so I doubt we will lose our electricity before the sleety dawn peeps through the clerestory windows of the Great Hall in the morning. However, if we seem to have made ourselves scarce here tomorrow, you’ll know why.
