Fernley House

April Showers

Storms continue to roll through the area. Yesterday evening shortly after we got home, we had some pretty menacing-looking clouds in the area.

I saw on Facebook that a funnel cloud was spotted hereabouts a week or so ago. It didn't touch down, and was apparently not a true tornado, but it was scary-looking nevertheless.

This morning, when I went out to wave at Amtrak going by, I saw that a little bit of snow was falling, in the form of flakes that appear to have been blown over from the nearby mountains on the bitter winds we're experiencing today. It got so cold that I had to light a fire in the fireplace, as the electric heaters can't keep up. It's not as bad as the depth of winter, but given that I work at a keyboard, my fingers have to be warm enough to type, which they were not for a while today.
