Storm Nemo

We are battening down the hatches for the Nor' Easter on steroids that is baring down on us.  It is snowing now and we are as prepared as we can be.

Our area of New England is expected to get 2-3 feet of snow with hurricane force winds.   That translates into widespread power outages.

Noooo....say it ain't so.
No power means no toilets, no heat, and worst of all....no hair dryer.
HA!  A girl has her priorities...
Just.Shoot.Me.Now.

Don't get me wrong...I LOVE a good blizzard.  It's fun to be inside watching the snow come down and being snowed in.  It's fun to do puzzles, drink hot chocolate and sit by the fire.

So as long as we can keep our power, we will be snug as bugs in a rug.
If you don't get fun pictures from me tomorrow on this blog, you will know that the worst has happened and we are without power.

Praying that people stay safe, the homeless have a place to go, and that those impacted by Hurricane Sandy aren't hit again (although the weather man seems to think they will be).

Right now the kids are running amok with Nerf guns...yelling like hyenas as they race through the house.  The snow isn't deep enough yet to be worth getting all dressed for it, so they are biding their time.
I will be sending them out when my ears can't take it anymore...

If we really do get two feet of snow, I can hardly wait to see our dog attempt to go outside to do her business.  She isn't 3 feet tall herself.  haha
Photo op!

Let the adventure begin!

Good luck. I'll be anxious to hear how it turns out for you. West MI got a snow day today from yesterday's storm. We got roughly 10 inches yesterday. The sun shine is shining now. Gorgeous.

The kids and I were chatting about you...my only friend that I know of in Boston...as we sat in McD's eating lunch. We barely avoided this storm. So thankful for that. Praying you keep power!

I can't decide if I'm super jealous or super happy that it's not happening here! I can FOR SURE do without a power-outage. UGH. Though we do have two generators and ten acres to do our business outdoors, if need-be.

What I'm saying is, COME HERE, before it's too late!!

Oh wait, it's probably too late.

PRAYING for you guys! Can't wait to see fun pics! :)

(It's sunny and semi-warm here right now.)
