Snowmaggedon

It’s supposed to snow tomorrow. Well at least I think it’s starting tomorrow. I’m a little confused by the “time line” they keep posting. It’s changed a little over time. We’re supposed to have an inch of ice underneath the snow and the snow is supposed to come in bucket loads. This morning they said 1 to 2 inches an hour. Plus it’s going to be a thunder snow storm, which magnifies everything. Where I live in the Lou it’s predicted at 4 to 10 inches. Really?! 4 to 10. That sounds pretty vague to me. Either a fair amount or a TON. We’ll see. Right now it’s just sleeting. Leaving a sheet of ice on the cars and steps, roads are ok at this point and the snow hasn’t started.

There are press conferences being held, they’re worried about power outages. So they have a bunch of city and county officials on TV talking about how bad it could be. It’s a little exhausting. There are also news reports about all stores being out of everything. There’s no bread, eggs, milk, snow melt, etc. Just pure madness.

My family is safe and sound at home and at this point even if our principal doesn’t call school tomorrow, mine aren’t going. It would have to pass us completely by and at this point I don’t think that’s going to happen. My mom is safe at home, she’s not planning on going to work the rest of the week. My dad is supposed to leave tomorrow for Mexico so we’ll see if that actually happens. His flight might be canceled. The biggest family news… my niece will be arriving no later than Friday thanks to induction. We pray that it’s not tomorrow, not that we don’t want her to come but we want her to come safely.

So there you go SNOWMAGGEDON!! We’ll see how it all pans out.

    I’m with you, Hollie! I think if we are getting anything like they say we are, no school. I feel prepared and happy we don’t have to go anywhere, but the possibility of power outages scare me a bit.
    I just keep thinking of that big one in 2006 :-O
