I understand what the Three Little Pigs felt like!

"I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll BLOOOOOOOWWWWWW your house down!" said the Big Bad Wolf.

Have you ever wondered what the three little pigs felt like? Or maybe Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz when her house was picked up by a tornado?

I totally understand what it felt like! I feel like my house is going to get blown right off of the stilts that it's up on and I'm not even exaggerating. We are having a massive storm here right now. A blizzard. Truly. The trees (if you could call them trees, they're really just tall bushes) are bent sideways, the blowing snow is so intense that I cant even see the house across the street. My house is literally swaying and rocking side to side. The weather service has announced sustained winds at 45-65 miles per hour with gusts up to 75 miles per hour. Intense! We are getting freezing rain, snow, and ice pellets. It's 21 degrees, so still relatively warm. The wind is clearly out of the west and is bringing snow with it and kicking up some other snow off the tundra. The street light across the street has either blown out or is being completed obstructed by horizontal snow. My guess it's the latter. Hopefully it will die down before morning because I cant imagine going out it this. School let out a hour early today because of this storm, but it was mild compared to what it's like now.
