The Sky Is Falling!

News Alert
-- MAJOR winter storm headed our way. All non-sentient beings must rush to the grocery store and denude the shelves of important things like milk, bottled water, and toilet paper.

I'm happy that we have plenty of flour, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, butter . . . you see where this is going, right?

Son is disappointed that it won't be on Monday. What's the point of having a BIG SNOW unless it's on a school day? It just doesn't feel as festive. He's right. So now he's hoping it is SUCH a BIG SNOW that they powers-that-be will cancel school for Monday. Dream On! If they miss Monday, and Wednesday is a half-day...ha ha ha ha...teachers will be insane on Tuesday!

At any rate, here is our forecast for the next several days. Quite exciting! Oh wait...I wonder if we have enough wine.

Tonight: Snow, mainly after midnight. Low around 27. East wind between 7 and 16 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total nighttime snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.

Saturday: Snow. The snow could be heavy at times. High near 30. North wind between 16 and 18 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of 8 to 12 inches possible.

Saturday Night: Snow, mainly before 4am. Low around 27. North wind between 14 and 16 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.

Sunday: A chance of snow, mainly before 10am. Cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a high near 33. Northwest wind around 16 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%.

I want snow but not 8-12 inches. Feels like we've had that much rain lately though.

Merry Christmas!!!!

Son sent out an e-mail saying to his buds, "Let's airsoft"

Now with blizzard warning he has retracted it.

Baking - yes!

Sara - that's the big downside to public school. I loved it when they were in private school and got out earlier...bummer

Thena - it looks like it will be even more! Yikes!
