Everyone knows it’s Windy

December 9, 2009 | Iowa,Weather,Winter

We’re smack-dab in the middle of this blizzard. The wind is still raging outside. The kids are going a tad stir crazy. I’m hoping the wind dies down at some point today so we can get out and see what the sleds will do out there.

In the meantime, we’re trying to figure out our LP-gas hot-water tank. According to the manual, the settings have changed because something is blocked. (By snow perhaps?) Anyway. It smells like gas, so we need to figure it out. We’ll try to call the plumbing & heating company, but I’ll bet they’re hunkered down like the rest of us. If we can get anyone on the telephone, though, maybe someone knows more about this than we do.

Here’s the snow drift in front of the barn. The tractor with the snow blower is in there.

More drifts block the wood shed.

Half of the snow fence has been gobbled up by the snow. But, hey, it looks like it’s doing its job.

See that dark spot in the middle of the photo? That’s where the LP tank is.

    Wow! You are sure getting ‘Blizzard-ed’!
    My husband asked if the Pilot Light in on for your tank. We’re on LP so may be able to offer some suggestions. He’s @mountain_trails on Twitter.

    Makes me miss blizzards. (Only because I’m sitting here in sunny 44 degree weather, of course.)

    Ooh, those photos take me back! Beautiful. Makes me miss blizzards too, though having had one out here in Las Vegas last December, I know they’re far better in theory and from afar than in close-up reality. :)

    Good luck getting the hot water tank situation straightened out!

    Yup, I don’t miss the midwest at all. Take care of yourselves out there. And you really have a barn?!

    Yes, we have a barn. Jealous? ;)
