The temperatures dropped to -15C with the windchill, and the snow began
Gale-force winds forced the snow horizontally across the land

we were swamped
Then the wind stopped and the temperatures raised
Impressive roadside sculptures were pitted with the thaw
then there was sleet, and rain and hail, but the worst was over for now .....
