If you were to look out my window, you would never know what is looming on the horizon:
But Mother Nature/El Niño/Normal Winter weather likes to play tricks on us.
At first, we were supposed to get 6-12" of snow. That is just enough to make rush hour a total nightmare and for you to be forced to wear your snow boots with your pencil skirt. Not my favorite.
Now we are scheduled to get 12-24" of snow by Friday afternoon. People, that is a significant difference! We're talking "I need to stock up on brownie mixes and hit Red Box and fill my tank up with gas" kind of difference. We're in full-blown "hunker down" mode around here...or at least I am, anyway.
And to be honest, I love to hunker down. There is something so exciting about it, especially if that involves me wearing my pajamas all day.
You can tell people are getting a little anxious. They are saying things like "I need to buy some flares in case I slide off the road" and "I need to go to Costco to buy a gallon-sized can of soup." It's serious business, this hunkering down.
So for now, on this deceptively warm, sunny February afternoon, we are all just waiting for this monster to roll into town. If it is the storm of the century, what will you do? Bake some cookies? Watch a movie or four? Read a good book? Ski out of your front door?
And for those of you who don't live in Colorado, feel free to hunker down with us anyway. Vicarious hunkering down totally counts.
