It is hard not to get freaked out. Our local gas and electric company is expecting widespread and long-lasting power outages. Sleet! Snow! 26 inches predicted!
You should see the grocery store parking lots and checkout lines (I stole this image from the Web, but it is representative of what goes on around here). I needed gas in my car yesterday (I always wait til the gas light comes on, after all). And I could hardly get anything to trickle out of the pump. There were lines at the gas station and the guy next to me was filling up multiple gas cans.
Yesterday I made a stop at the liquor store to get some bloody mary fixin's. Can't be without that, you know. Then, I decided to take Tracy up on her offer for a Snow Storm Sleepover at her house this weekend. We are both husband-less this weekend and why not be together? Plus, she has a wood burning fireplace so we can stay warm no matter what happens. I don't think she likes bloody marys though. She'll be having blueberry martinis.
I am hoping to relax, stay warm and have some fun. I hope everyone else can do the same. And I hope against hope that my son decides he can sleep in a pack and play for once.
