We are to be getting a Blizzard of Armageddon proportions today. You know the type; the media is in a frenzy, the stores are packed and you have your rations of milk, eggs and bread.
I often wonder what are we to do with this milk, eggs and bread. Is the staple meal with a blizzard, french toast. Why wouldn’t we just have our normal groceries in the house and just eat our normal menu. I am very glad in times like this I am a caner. I can open a jar of soup, or meat to make a meal. Very handy to have in situations like this.
So there is this hype and frenzy in the air with a storm. Mind you not one flake has fallen yet but a big percentage of the schools in the state have already closed. A major metro school district, St Paul, is closing at noon. That floors me- these predictions better be good. We are still in school but the school closings are getting closer and closer to us. We are now seeing schools within a 30 mile radius are closing.
I don’t know what to think. An old fashion big ol’ blizzard would be fun. Watching the snow get higher and higher is exciting to watch. No one has to leave tomorrow so we would be safe. We have our bread, milk and eggs. Then there is this practical adult part of my brain that is saying NO we don’t want this. Our cars will be covered in snow. Then we have to shovel this snow. As soon as I am done shoveling the plow goes by and makes a wall that is waist deep that we now have to shovel through.
So we wait, and we wait. The electricity in the air of anticipation is almost to much. Technology is such that we can text friends and family far and near, “Is it doing anything by you yet.” Yes that childlike part in my soul is ready for a big Minnesota Blizzard.
