The Calm

Yesterday, we had about 5 inches of really great packing snow, so we made this nice snowman. He is pretty much gone now, his arms and nose eaten by the neighborhood critters.

Now, the weather people say more snow is coming tomorrow, and it will likely be at least a foot and probably more. The state - excuse me, Commonwealth - of Virginia has already declared a state of emergeny (or would it be a commonwealth of emergency?) and nothing has even happened yet. Everyone in town, including me, was at Wegman's this morning buying up milk and bread as if it was Y2k all over again. Oh well, better to be prepared than not prepared. I have enough food to get us through to at least Monday, and I have already checked to make sure Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is on PPV so we can have Movie Night. I have bread-baking supplies and lots of yarn. And a very dirty house that needs attention. And, we have Rock Band. I am almost excited at the idea of being house-bound for a few days. Maybe I'll actually get something DONE. Bring it on, Snow Miser. By Sunday night, I'll have a clean house, fresh homemade bread, a new scarf FINISHED for my dad, and improved drummer skills. And I will be ready to get back to normal on Monday. Unfortunately, I think it's supposed to snow again next week.

Wish us luck digging out. And have a good weekend, wherever you are.

Hey, good luck!

Hope you don't have a power outage (e.g. from snow-bound limbs falling on power lines).

Still can knit; probably no Rock Band. ;)
