One last post before I become buried in a glacier

We're supposed to get a big snow/ice storm pretty soon.
It'll hit just after midnight, and will last til we're all whimpering for mercy by candlelight as our power lines snap under the pressure.
Or at least until noon. (Whichever comes first.)

Luckily, I don't have to go to work Friday. So it's perfectly ok if I just sit here at home and waste time spend the day doing something constructive.
If the power goes out, I won't be able to blog, of course.
Assuming I survive that inhumane deprivation, I'll post again as soon as I'm able.

With any luck, I'll be back tomorrow, same as usual, saying something like "Cool! Guess what! It wasn't nearly as bad as we all feared!"

On the other hand, if you don't hear from me for three days, please send a few sled dogs over here to look for me. Or maybe one of those Saint Bernard dogs with a big barrel of hot chocolate. :)

To see a radar shot of the storm that's hitting me, check out my Jantrails post.

It's pretty much snow-ice castles down here, but I think you're supposed to get more of the snowy stuff yet today?

Stay inside if you can!

We're getting hit by a storm of apocoplyptic proprtions too. At least that is the way the stupid weathermen are acting.
Snow? In New Jersey? In December?

That hasn't happened since...oh wait, almost every year.

NM, time to make some hot chocolate, and some emergency hot chocolate in case I need to hire that dogsled team.

GigglePixie: We got a bunch of snow, but THANKFULLY the ice missed us, staying mostly to our south.

DaOldMan: Of course, winter is gonna have snow, but some years are way worse than others. Please add some marshmallows to my hot chocolate. Chocolate chip cookies might be nice too.

I'm not worried about you. You like the cold.

Lynda: Well, the older I get, the less I can tolerate the cold. It's very discouraging. I used to love weather like this. But now I'm just sort of waiting for Spring. I can't believe I just said that.

It's been cold and we can't go anywhere because the roads are too icy. But at least we haven't lost power.

Oh great. Now I've jinxed it.

Travis: Stay indoors and play with Mr. Tucker instead. You won't even have to share your CAKE.
