It's just gorgeous outside today: The sun is dancing off our 3" snowfall of yesterday.
And lying through it's icy teeth.
There's a huge storm rolling down upon us. A big wet southern storm is making its way north. A big dip in the polar jet stream is bearing down to the south. And when they meet up - it's gonna be nothing but trouble. 8-10" of trouble.
Can't do anything but wait for it. I'm sure the grocery stores are mobbed today between the coming storm and tomorrow's superbowl sunday parties. Mom and I are set: food in the 'fridges, furnaces working (check out the current Household Adventures post on the sidebar blog today), books for Mom to read, computers for me to use.
I've also got 2 pots of beans soaking so I can simmer them up tomorrow during the storm. Nothing is cozier than either a fire or something on the stove during bad weather.
How about you? Making any consideration for the storm? (I mean, have ya checked the radar lately?) Or is just another day for you?
P.S. One nice note - literally. The past couple weeks I've noticed the start, and increase of birdsong! Not just the usual winter *chitter cheap* of birds feeding, but real song in the mix too. Ah, hope Springs eternal.
