I had plans for Saturday. I was picking my Mom up and we were going to go see my son Paul. His birthday was February 1 and my Mom's was February 6. Most of you are aware of the situation with my darn kid so needless to say I don't get to spend his birthday with him. Being that he is still my son and I do love him, can't stand him sometimes though, I wanted to see him and so does my Mom. She is 87 now and who knows if he will ever see her outside of prison again. I sure do hope so but that is in Gods hands.
I have been disappointed with the amount of snow that we have gotten this winter. Now don't get me wrong, I am not a snow freak, that wants tons of snow on the ground constantly. But these dustings that we have been getting are nothing but teasers. We had one storm that yielded about 6" and it was beautiful. I like one, maybe 2 good storms a year. But why does it have to fall on a day that I have plans?
It is suppose to start snowing today after midnight. That's good, everyone or most people will be home safe and sound and off the roads. It will snow all day and night Friday with blizzard conditions, heavy snow that is with winds over 50 mph which causes drifting. Sleet and freezing rain(is there a difference) will be mixed in with that during the mid day hours and turning to all snow by late afternoon. 18-24" are expected. Snow will not end until mid day Saturday. My Mom lives north of me and will get it worse than I do. Paul is in Brooklyn CT and will get it way worse than both of us. There is no way on God's green earth that I am going out on Saturday.
It is another week that I was suppose to go and see Paul and didn't go. This happened last weekend also. They predicted snow, so we cancelled the trip. It never snowed until evening and then it was a dusting. It barely covered the cars and was gone in the blink of an eye. I was bummed all day. I am sure that my son was looking for us and when we didn't come he was bummed. I worry when that happens because it puts him in a bad mood. I know he put himself there, but I can't help but feel for him. I am serving every minute of his sentence too.
My homemaker is coming today at 11. I am going to have her follow me to Monro and I am dropping my car off for an oil change. Then I am going to go to Stop and Shop for milk and my bank is in the store. I have to get some money. I had to cancel my debit card. Someone got a hold of the number and ordered things on the web. I am not responsible for it but it is still a pain to have to cancel and wait for a new card. I know the store will be crazy because of the storm.
Well, I guess I am in for the weekend after todays little jaunt. I will get lots of sparking done. I may even get to finish the book that I started before Christmas and haven't picked up since Christmas Eve at my Mom's before going to sleep. I may even watch a few DVD's I purchased the Blind Side a while ago and haven't watched it yet. I let my Mom borrow Dolphin Tales and haven't gotten it back yet. I hope everyone has a safe weekend. If you are in the path of the storm, be safe. If not have a great weekend. What are you doing this weekend?
