The word “blizzard” does not fill me with the slightest bit of joy. As of this morning, the National Weather Service issued a Blizzard Watch for my area for the weekend.
I don’t hate snow – when it’s in reasonable amounts. 17 to 28 inches of snow is not reasonable. Not at all. Nope.
I am trying very hard to prevent the snow by overpreparing. New snow shovel. Ice melt. New waterproof boots are on the truck being delivered today. We have a house full of food. I am getting Carmen’s meds and batteries for my lantern this afternoon. I finally got my iPad to backup and I’m updating the OS and all the apps now. I have candles. (OK, they’re little Yankee Candle jars, but I have them.*)
I just do not want to deal with a blizzard. Not now, not ever. I really need to move farther south.
*You should really try the apple cider one. It smells just like the hot cider from the Raleigh Tavern stand in Williamsburg.
