Before the storm - Actifit: January 16 2020

in #actifit9 months ago (edited)

There is a big snow storm coming, they say, and it is expected to dump 6 to 8 inches all over the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Everyone was running to the stores today for provisions, as if it may possibly takes weeks to dig out. (Reality check: it will be 12-24 hours or thereabouts before all roads are passable.)

A lot of people are planning to work from home tomorrow, or leave the office by noon to get home before the worst of it hits. It’s going to be an adventure!

I stepped outside to grab a few pictures. This is my walkway. It shows you how much snow we have now.

It was the end of the day when I captured these photos. I just managed to get a few as the sun began to settle itself down behind the trees and houses. It was the golden hour.

The temperature was bitterly cold, and like yesterday I was only able to stay out for a bit. It was 40+ degrees below freezing (-11 Fahrenheit).

But wait! In the next few moments I looked up. And there in the clear blue, cloudless sky was a jet stream, high above the colors of the setting sun.

Thank you for visiting. I will be sure to share pictures of what the storm brings us!

Thank you, @steemitbloggers!

Brrrrrrr! I remember days of 34 below zero in Gunnison, CO when we lived there. Once you hit zero degrees, it pretty much doesn't matter anymore, lol! Good job with your 5054 @actifit steps. Maybe the storm will pass you by. Regardless, have a wonderful night and be safe tomorrow!

Yeah, those sub-zero temperatures are harsh! I wouldn’t want an outdoor job like garbage collection or mail delivery! 5054 steps is I think my lowest of all time. I almost didn’t post it. But I’m addicted to my nightly post! Thanks so much for visiting, @elizabethbit!

Always post! 5000 is the first reward level, so it's worth it! I've had a couple of times where it's been a struggle to even hit the 5000 mark, but it worked out. I find now the best way to get to the 10,000 when we haven't been able to hike, is to load a movie on Netflix and walk back and forth in the house while watching it. It makes the time fly by and you become very adept at missing those things that might get in your way, like countertops, walls, cats, doors, etc. Have a wonderful night!

I do the same! It’s great fun, and a wonderful way to combine things you want to do — exercise and entertainment. It’s rare that I’m too busy to find time to fit steps in somehow, but it did happen that day!

Can't wait to see the picture post storm!

I hope you will post some too! Funny, I read that as “picture post storm” — e.g. the storm of picture posts. Then I realized you meant the pictures after the storm. Fun with language!
