BOHICA: PA Bracing for Round Two, Possibly Three

Things here still haven't returned to normal since Friday's snowstorm. Yes, we can travel the main roads, but it's still tricky. School was canceled today and is also slated to stay closed tomorrow. My older son called to say that classes at his college have been nixed for the rest of the week. On top of all of this, we're bracing for another foot of snow tomorrow into Wednesday. Imagine the joy on my face! *snark*

As I was at Wal-Mart this evening, I grabbed the last two loaves of white bread on the shelves before running into my mother. She had just gotten off of a four-hour stretch of running a register up front. Telling her that school was canceled for tomorrow, she said that there is yet ANOTHER storm system that's being watched by forecasters and could hit over the weekend. My heart sank.

While being snowed in has its advantages (I might finally be able to catch up on things!), I honestly don't look forward to another storm. Travel this winter has been treacherous at best, and I worry about my kids' education. They need to go to school!!!!

Thankfully, we haven't lost our electricity like many in this area of the country. Should that be the catalyst to send me over the edge, I have no problem going to a hotel with the kids. The hubby can rough it since he thinks there's nothing to it.

My advice to anyone who may be anticipating this storm would be to PLEASE stay in if you can. If you absolutely can't get around traveling, take your time and be safe. My prayers are with you.

My prayers are with you also. This is pure craziness-the loads of snow. This is going to be carzy with snow plows trying to figure out where to put all the snow. Keep safe and try not to go too stir crazy.

I hate losing power because of winter weather. Glad it's still on for you.

BB: Hope yinz dodge the bullet down there, buddy.

We have a generator if the power does go out, but I really don't feel like playing Amish until the crews get out.

Ran: That is definitely another way of putting it. It still means the same as the original, though. ;-D

I'ts a nightmare, B & G! I'm glad you have pwoer. It's snowing NONSTOP in Chi-town,a nd we'll have about a foot by tomorrow morning. I wish that evil bum would let us not come in, but that would be too much like right...what do they care, they live there, assholes.

Please be careful out there, and let me know how you are.

You be safe as well, my dear. Any boss who is so cold as to not understand the weather conditions and people's safety is evil incarnate. Make sure you piss him off at least once today for me! ;-)
