Wednesday Warnings…

In the midst of Thanksgiving preparations we are getting daily updates about an impending wind storm that is supposed to hit us on Wednesday. I decided to do a little baking on Tuesday and wash some clothes and do other things that involve power. Let’s hope since we are getting so many warnings it won’t be as bad as they say.

Northern Panhandle-Coeur d`Alene Area-Northeast Mountains-Including the cities of Sandpoint, Rathdrum, Bonners Ferry, Priest River, Eastport, Coeur d`Alene, Post Falls, Hayden, Worley, Colville, Deer Park, Chewelah, Newport, and Kettle Falls
* WHAT…Northeast winds 35 to 45 mph with gusts up to 60 mph possible.
* WHERE…In Washington, Northeast Mountains. In Idaho, Northern Panhandle and Coeur d`Alene Area.
* WHEN…From Wednesday morning through Wednesday evening.
* IMPACTS…Damaging winds could blow down trees and power lines. Widespread power outages are possible. Travel could be difficult, especially for high profile vehicles.
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS…Strongest winds are expected down the Highway 95 corridor from Sandpoint to Coeur D`Alene.
We won’t have it as hard as those first Pilgrims did when they landed in what is now Massachusetts even if we lose power.
The thing about our country bungalow is that everything…everything depends on electricity, even our well water.
Hoping for the best but planning on the worst.
I suppose I should also mention that our mornings have been starting in the low twenties or teens and only warming up to about 27 -33 degrees.
Speaking of power and light…From God is the Gospel by John Piper:
“The ultimate aim of the incarnation was that through Christ people would see the Lordship of Christ and the glory of God. The whole story of Christ’s incarnate life and death and resurrection was the brightest beam of glory that has ever shone down from the brightness of God. When the gospel story is rightly proclaimed, that glory is displayed.”
Happy Thanksgiving Eve to our friends and family in the U.S.A.

  1. The weather everywhere sounds problematic. Praying that the power stays on and that you and yours enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving. (It may be time, now that you live in the country, to invest in a generator. Sigh.)

  2. The wind is howling here and is coming from the mainland, so it’s cold. I hope your power stays on and you’ll be able to celebrate your usual Thanksgiving feast. Have a blessed time together with family.

  3. Supposed to get windy here too but not as bad as by you.
    Hope it misses you!!
    Heard it was going to be windy in NYC and they weren’t going to have the giant balloons in the parade this year.

  4. Hello Ellen, hopefully the winds will not impact your Thanksgiving plans. Prayers and warm greetings for you and your family for Thanksgiving Day. And I’d like to add I’m very thankful for your friendship over all these years we’ve been blogging. Sara

  5. Ellen – we are visiting family in Ohio, but I have been watching the Montana weather from here and I am aware of these warnings. Coincidentally, we also had high wind warnings here today. And it was as forecast – garbage cans flying around, downed branches, decorations that had come loose from homes, you name it. Fortunately, we have escaped any power outages thus far! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

    • Angie, Thank you and a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. I’m happy to report the wind storm did not prove to be as bad as predicted here and we did not lose power. Woohoo!
