Monday between the storms   3 comments

It seems Mother Nature has suddenly remembered that it is, in fact winter.  Our snow storm Saturday started on time, and gave us 5-6 inches of pretty fluffy snow.  Not bad.  We got our Saturday chores done early, then hunkered down and enjoyed the pretty stuff.  Sunday we cleaned off the car, went off to Brewer to do a few errands, then came home, and learned of the Nor’Easter headed our way.  In true hysterical meteorologist fashion we have heard the following for a forecast:  Blizzard conditions for three days, winds in the 50 mph range, power outages, and accumulations?  Anywhere from 7 inches to 2 feet, depending on where you are. (Duh, of course it depends on where you are!  If you are in Florida, you won’t get any snow.  Jeesh)

Forgive me if I find it difficult to buy into their wild stories.

I expect we will get quite a storm, and that it will start tonight sometime and be over and gone by Wednesday morning, and that we will have about a foot of snow. I can predict this because I have a degree in Finance. (As useful as any when it comes to the weather.)

They get so darned excited that it goes to their heads, I think, and they predict wild and crazy things, then they back off of them, then afterwards, no matter what happens, they can say they predicted it.

Oh, and lest we decide to let that snow hang about uncleared for any length of time, Thursday night into Friday, we are getting more, as yet unspecified amounts, except that it will be “plowable.”  Another few inches at least.

So, this fine Monday, A is home (previously scheduled) and we will clear off the paths and decks in preparation for more snow.  I’ll fill water jugs, charge cell phones, etc. We already have candles and flashlights out for the season, and so are in pretty good shape for a few days of storminess. I roasted a chicken yesterday, so we have leftovers ready to be warmed up. Life is good for the moment.

Of course, Tuesday, A is scheduled to go to Brownville, but I suspect that won’t happen. She may have a mini-vacation this week!

Wednesday, I am scheduled to spend the day with Mom, but that may be only half a day, or get rescheduled as well.  We will see. That would be a shame, as we had a hard time finding this day, when we were both free.  Taxes start next week, so my weeks become instantly full.

Thanks, Mother Nature!  Get it out of your system now, please, and then go back to sleep.

  1. We are getting the “blizzard” now. The real fun part of the storm is expected tonight and into Tuesday morning. Generator, fuel, food, and yarn. Oh yes, and snow shovels for the paths we must dig for Yarn Rascal. This is how I get my exercise in the winter.

    • stay safe (no ice skating, please!) and warm. It is starting to get more cloudy… we had hazy sun earlier. No generator, but we have lit the fire in the basement, and filled the tub. I think we are as good as we can get at the moment. Just waiting.

  2. We also heard about the big weather out your way. 🙂 Stay warm and cosy.
    It is of course mid summer here, 30 degrees C about every day.
    Take care. 🙂
