Brace Yourself

I have been closely watching the radar and the onimous icy blue wave that's coming our way. 60 nearby schools have already called it quits. The grocery store looks like a bomb went off and took all the water, and bread with it. We've bought some firewood and brought out the blankets and flashlights, and stocked up on hot choclate. We are ready for that crazy carolina snow storm. It should be hitting any hour now.

We may seem overly cautious and a little premature with all our angst but the thing is... there is like one salt truck and maybe 2 plows for the entire state so if we get even a flurry we're stuck!

I can't wait! I plan on snuggling down in bed and sleeping in, going absolutely no where except maybe for a walk/sledding in (hopefully) the winter wonderland.

  1. ohhh, enjoy this! I love when you feel the need to bunker down and just stay home. And how perfect that you won't have to do much tomorrow! Have fun!

  3. We are in the same boat, Shannon. Calling for snow to start around noon, but some of the schools have already canceled school for Monday. I guess they don't want to take any chances. I just love a snow day, when I can be hibernated in and don't have to go anywhere. It is so peaceful! Enjoy your "snow day"! Love & blessings from NC!
