Reporting To You Live From The Heart Of Juno

We interrupt this regularly scheduled blog programming to bring you a LIVE weather report from the heart of Winter Storm Juno…

Austin JunoYes, Modern Philosophers, I have dared to go out into the heart of this blizzard to bring you live coverage of Snow Miser’s latest attempts to destroy mankind.

Juno is definitely still raging.  It’s difficult to get a reading on how much snow has fallen so far as the winds keep blowing it into enormous drifts.  I’d guess at least 8 inches…

Juno HouseHere’s how The House on the Hill looks.  Check out the mound of snow next to the mailbox.  And the front porch steps…I’d cleared those before I set out to shovel the driveway.  They are already buried again!

Juno porchHere’s a shot of my covered front porch.  The snow is fairly deep, and I’m glad I put the grill in the garage because the winds are howling wicked fierce!

Juno across streetHere’s the view of across the street from the porch.  Those trees were swaying and the sky was a hazy shade of Winter…

Juno from porchAnother view up the block from the porch.  The snow is coming down so hard that you can actually see it in the photo.

Juno side yardA view of the side yard and garage.  Again, you can see the snow falling.  Zombie Car is tucked away all safe and sound inside, and I’m so glad I don’t have to drive in this!

Juno down streetThe view looking towards Bangor, which cannot be seen in the distance because of the conditions.

The street hasn’t even been plowed yet.  I was stunned to see a car come up the hill while I was outside.  Why would you want to be driving in this?

Juno House sideA side view of The House on the Hill.  I made sure to go up into the attic to check on The Woodburys, the Ghost family that resides up there.  They weren’t big fans of the storm, either, but as the grandfather joked, “It’s not like it’s gonna kill us!”.

More photos to follow after this brief commercial break…

  1. Raging here too. Hope your work is closed today and you didn’t have to take a “sick day.”

    You should stay in and watch Stephen King’s, Storm of the Century. It’ll make your situation look better by comparison.

    You took your life in your hands taking those pictures.

    Juno. Sounds like a very mythological storm. . . interesting. Thanks for taking pics! I can’t get enough snow (insert sarcastic tone here) 😉

    Time to get those skis out of the shed – maybe the Woodbury’s will come along with you. Ghost skiers – now that would be something! Stay warm!

    Wow, Juno is the real deal storm. It looks mighty cold. The pictures are great. They are the closet I get to experiencing snow (I live in California :)). Stay inside. Don’t go out there!

    No i wouldn’t want to drive in it or be shoveling it either . Interesting idea since your house is on the hill open a temporary ski slope . A mini version could be lucrative & then you could invest in a snowblower lol ! ☺

    As they say, all persnickety, it’s not the snow that’ll git ya, it’s the blowin’ snow.

    Big time up there, Austin. Great pictures. Be safe.

  9. Now I have a dueling duet, between Simon & Garfunkel and The Bangles, in my head. Not sure who is going to win. But it is a welcomed distraction from all the shoveling, and mess Juno left behind. Loved the movie, this version not so much.
