So, will it be HIT? or MISS?
Well, the weather wizards on TV are in ultra-panic mode with never-ending news and alerts of a Brobdingnagian winter storm wending our way tomorrow morning.
Fearing the worst, I got my old winter boots out of the closet and made a trip to my local stupidmarket for a gallon of milk, a loaf of bread, 3 cans of chicken noodle soup, a six-pack of Charmin and a bag of Road Runner Ice Melter. I also would have thrown in a couple of packages of Twinkies, but they don’t make them anymore. So I added a package of Fig Newtons instead. And I also threw in a spare box of Flavor Snacks for Mlle. Renee. So come what may, Renee and I are totally prepared. I also made sure the snow shovel was locked in the garage, so I won’t be tempted to shovel the walks.
Latest dire/ominous reports have the super storm dozing in Texas and Oklahoma.
5:17 PM UPDATE – 3 to 5 inches of snow in Saint Louis by 6 PM Thursday. Guess they’re really taking this one serious. The West Walnut Manor street department pretreated the local streets this afternoon. Those white stripes are a mixture of ice melters and beet juice.
That’s my life,
And welcome to it!
