I am sitting here at the table, writing my post, and staring out the window. Why? I am waiting, just anticipating…the predicted nor’easter.
Last night listening to the weather forecast I heard, “Freezing rain starting around midnight, changing to rain, back to freezing rain, and then snow this evening and tonight. Accumulation from 1 to 8 inches. “
OK. That covers just about all weathers patterns except sunshine. I guess they can’t be wrong with that prediction. 1 to 8 inches…I wonder if I could pick the amount I want. I choose a dusting to an inch.
I did look out the window at around 2 AM, not because i had to get up to check on the weather but because I had to go to the bathroom and decided to look outside on my way back. The road did look glossy. I went back to bed.
This morning I had to go to the post office. When I went out nothing was falling and it was 35 degrees. I also went to the store. After all, if were were going to be house bound for a day I needed some essentials like powdered sugar do-nut holes and blueberry turnovers. I already have hot chocolate in the house.
I have said before that I am not a good waiter. Nothing has started yet. What does this mean? Will the storm pass us? It would be nice but doubtful that this will happen. Does the fact that it is starting later mean that there will be more of an accumulation than first predicted? I hope note.
The waiting game is not one I like or am particularly good at. I guess I just have to wait and see. In the meantime, hot chocolate, blueberry turnovers, powdered sugar do-nut holes, mini buckeyes, chocolate peanut butter fudge, flavored teas. I guess I’m ready for whatever happens.
