Default Re: Jan.1 Wind Warning

I went out to westminister a forest on the south side of town when the snow squall hit I always wanted to know what it would be like in a forest at night during a windy snowstorm......Was pretty eerie with the pink glow from the city lights in the sky the quiet snow falling and the trees swaying but not much because without leaves the resists the wind much better. It felt like minus 30 though as my face almost froze off and exiting the forest heading back the the car the whiteouts were crazy!!!! Not much for heavy snowfall but more of a dangerous whiteout event for the town
