Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

We are waiting to see what we actually end up with, but I've heard snowfall forecasts ranging from 6 inches plus, to 10-20 inches of snow. The more, the merrier I say. At least for this snowfall. After a while, snow gets wearisome. The only thing that would have made this better is if it had fallen on a Sunday night into Monday. Hoping for a white Christmas too - I hear there is another storm coming later this week.

They've just updated the snowfall totals on the news. We are in a band forecast to get 12-18 inches of snow! Yippee! I'll give credit to our local meteorologist Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz - last night he jumped right in forecasting 10-20 inches of snow, whereas everyone else was hedging their bets with 6+ inches. Calling it as he sees it must have something to do with that bow tie he wears!

I'm going to spend the day wrapping (always a last minute struggle before), making my list and checking it twice (to make sure I didn't miss anyone), and just generally taking this snow as a sign to sloooooooow down! DS Dan and Nicole want to do some shopping today, hoping the stores won't be too crowded. So Dan will pick me up and drive me over to their place to watch Justin. Another bonus!

Well, gotta go make breakfast for DS Tom. I grabbed a grilled cheese sandwich. I'm making him pancakes.

Have a great day, everyone!


  1. The snow hasn't started here yet, but we're forecasted to get the same totals as you. Safe travels today!

  2. Enjoy!! My girls would sure rather have YOUR weather than ours today: 74 and sunny...I would agree with them.
