Massive winter storm

We are inundated with a massive winter storm today, although one that is not snowing much around here.  The outflow winds are strong coming through Howe Sound and the Squamish is pumping at 50knots, well into storm force territory, with a freezing spray warning in effect.  The windchill is -19 at the moment.  So far, we are good with power, but the little woodstove has been pumping all morning, heating the house.
