Super storm Nemo is upon us. ST and I made it home just as the snow began accumulating.
We left work as fast as possible to stock up on food and gas nearby. People were definitely panicking; the supermarket was packed with people buying water and canned goods while cars were already waiting on line for gas. I think everyone learned their lesson from Hurricane Sandy and are in survival mode. I found myself getting anxious and putting way more stuff in our cart than we needed. Luckily, we loaded our car with food and gas within 45 minutes.
Despite the destruction and tragedy caused by Sandy, snow makes me much more anxious than water. And yet, it also feels pretty sweet to be snuggled at home with my man and my dog, with nothing else to do besides watch Community (It’s the Hunger Deans!), try new recipes (basil and sunflower pesto!), and eat Gorgonzola cheese.
Leela, on the other hand, loves the snow. ST had to get a long walk in before Nemo really began raging. Here she is all towel-dried and damp from her romp outside:
Hopefully Nemo will let up and we can salvage the rest of our weekend. Or, we could continue to do all of our favorite things. Win-win situation.
Stay safe and warm folks!
Yesterday, the weather guy said to expect “snow flurries.”
There is nothing flurry-like about this!
I was utterly unprepared. They say you shouldn’t wear leather in snow. Oh, well.
I’m conflicted about snow. On the one hand, it’s great cuddle weather I get to do all the things I love – lazing, watching TV, and online window shopping without guilt. On the other hand, it’s freezing and going anywhere is a hassle. So I guess my positive and negative feelings toward this weather cancel out and I’m neutral to snow.
Winter is back too soon. Boo.
