It sounds like a bad spinoff of an eighties cartoon, doesn’t it. Thundersnow along with its sidekick thundersleet have hit tonight. In spades. Snow and thunder and lightning. The weather around here has definitely blown lately. It even kept me from a chat. Nearly apocalyptic I tell you. And that’s not all…
We’re supposed to get a foot of snow by morning. That would be 12 inches for the math-impaired. Up to two inches per hour. Actually some sources say 20 inches. When the news say “prepare now because the end of the world is nigh…” Wait! Wrong story. When the news says “prepare now because travel tomorrow will be limited”, you know we’re in for it. They’re calling it a significant event.
Have I mentioned the flooding? Okay, I won’t.
I’m really glad I work from home, and I’ve been working my fingers to the bone. Really, I think the padding in the tips of my fingers has shifted like the stuffing of cheap couch cushions. It may possibly have travelled to my butt which hasn’t left the chair except to get and get rid of coffee. Several pots a day. Well, that’s not completely true. I cleaned. My house is still clean. And this weekend, I was in baking mode…three batches of cinnamon rolls and a loaf of bread later, I stopped and retired the flour to the cabinet. Those goddess points must be restocked from time to time and cookies weren’t on the slate. Neither was laundry. I think the hubby might officially be out of underwear. Sorry honey…deadlines. Have you seen the weather…?
