Well, this is what we have to look forward to tomorrow. More snow. I've been tracking it on radar all day, watching it build out west and tonight it's getting ever closer. From the looks of it, I think the storm will be here long before 1:00 tomorrow. I wouldn't be surprised if we wake up to the white stuff.

In any event, I think we're prepared. I went to the grocery yesterday and stocked up, just in case, because we live several miles outside of town in a rural area and our road is well off the beaten track. If we should lose power, we have plenty of firewood and kerosene.

I hope everyone stays safe and warm.

  1. We're braced for it here as well. Since we've moved to our new house, getting out is much more difficult, so we just "hunker down"! I enjoy the white stuff... it's so pretty and peaceful. But like you, I hope everyone stays safe through it all!

    Sounds like a good excuse to stay home and cook and WRITE!

  2. Yes, this weekend will be good for writing. The only problem is, when it's snowing, I can't seem to stay away from the windows. :o)

  3. Today is Feb. 10th and we have more snow. At least we can be thankful it's inches instead of feet.
