Blog Memories: An Ice Storm Covers My Bedford Farm

Today we're expecting the temperature to reach 50-degrees Fahrenheit - very mild for this time of year. Northeast winters can be quite erratic. This encore blog was originally posted in December 2019, shortly after an ice storm covered the farm.

Today is expected to be clear and sunny, but bitterly cold here at my Bedford, New York farm with highs only in the mid-20s.

I hope you’ve seen my Instagram posts @MarthaStewart48 - we’ve had quite a stormy week. Yesterday, I posted a video taken from a window at our New York City headquarters during a brief snow squall, a quick and intense burst of snow accompanied by strong, gusty winds - it covered the city with almost a half-inch of powder. Earlier in the week, we had an ice storm, characterized by freezing rain and the accumulation of at least a quarter-inch of ice on exposed surfaces. When I woke up, there was a coating of ice on everything.
