Well, now we're gearing up for the Apocalyptic Blizzard of 2010. The annoying thing is that the Four Horsemen won't arrive in the evening, making the world good and hazardous before midnight and guaranteeing that school and work will announce they're closed before you even go to bed. No, we'll still have to get up early, go to work and school, and then sit there anxiously waiting for the roads to be deemed hazardous enough to send us home. "No, the roads are still pretty good, so stay here. Okay, now they're slick as hell. Everybody go home! And be careful, cause the roads are slick!"
Oh well. Part of me is looking forward to snuggling and baking all sorts of crap. And the other part of me is arranging for firewood, charging the battery-operated lantern, and praying we don't lose power. Luckily, Basset Hounds are very warm. And good snugglers. They may finally earn their keep.
