Preparing for the storm
Friday, February 08, 2013
For days now we have heard about this big winter storm named Nemo. My SIL quips,"well we found Nemo." So we stocked in bread, milk and low fat Ice cream. Prepared the shovels and calcium spread. Tucked the grill in a corner on the back porch, we leave it out as I grill all year round, and removed anything that could blow away. I went to school today and we closed early. I hurried home to get off the roads. I curled up with a book, the cat and a rerun of Dr. Who and found I dozed off. I woke 2 hours later refreshed and excited to see the snow....it wasn't. We have a dusting and the 12 inches are now changed to 6 possible over night. I'm not a big fan of winter, I love the concept of winter. White fluffy snow, warm fires, nippy refreshing winds, a white, hushed world all the things of winter but the older I get the cold, slippery roads, dry skin and wet feet don't appeal to me. But I always look forward to the storms.
