It has been blowing here all night shortly after yesterday's post I went and raked the snow off the tarp. This may have been a big mistake. This morning it appears that the wind has shredded the front half of my cover. I'll have to get another tarp here in the next few days and brush off the deck right now no one is going anywhere. The county, schools, colleges, even the local pizza joint is closed. The main part of the blizzard is past but now we are in for some serious lake effect snow and wicked cold days. Hopefully these winds will settle down soon the snow drifts are growing pretty quick out there. Good luck all and stay warm.
