Today, I spent the day getting ready for a blizzard coming our way tonight and lasting till late Tuesday night/ Wednesday morning. The Northeast will be getting slammed in a little bit, but thankfully we are ready for it. I used to hate it when it snowed, since we were never prepared, but it’s different when you are ready and waiting.
One thing that happens for me everytime we get ready for a storm like this, is how it gives me a glimpse of our lives, without the ease of electronics, how the people lived way back when, in the olden days. It makes me realize just how ease we have it nowadays. But it also makes me aware how much electronics can take away from our lives if we let it for ex. less actual person to person interaction. So, yes I am thrilled about tonights snow because it gives me some extra time with my family, plus it gives us something to play in.
So here I am, waiting for our blizzard preparing & making sure we have plenty of food & water, keeping candles all in one spot w/ a lighter, checking our inverter making sure it still works……..to mention a few things.
Are you in the red zone (blizzard warning zone), going to be hit by the the storm coming to the Northeast? Are you ready for it? Are you happy we are finally getting snow? I seem to be one of the only ones happy about getting this much snow. What are you doing to prepare for the storm? 🙂
