The weather service sent out a winter storm warning early in the week… very unusual. The weathermen are frothing the town up, and all the towns and cities around us, with the idea of a serious snow/ice event. Yesterday the highways were being brined for a storm not expected to hit until midnight tonight. Cancellations everywhere.. sports events, trips, flights…
Email reminders sent out to all state employees… me being one since I am a teacher… reminding us how to make winter weather preparations. The town is standing by with plows and sand, with chainsaws sharpened for heavy limbs which, when covered with delicate ice, can crash down taking the power with it.
So yesterday evening I sent the man about the place out to get some weekend groceries. As a teacher, I tend to shop on the weekend for the weeks groceries. By Friday we can be seriously low on things around here. So, he went out to buy the staples… milk and bread and cereal… and a few other things required for big snow.
So we are ready.. now we shall see if it really snows!
