The National Weather Service warned of a major snow event headed our way
and I sprang into action:
heading to the grocery store to stock up on food and wine
(what's up with people stocking up on milk and bread before storms?
Is there some law that one must have those particular items on hand in case of emergency?),
filling the gas tank of my car,
filling the bird feeders on the back deck
and making sure that we had enough salt on hand for the driveway and front walk.
Then the only thing left to do was to sit back and wait for the storm to hit.
first with rain,
then with snow,
then back to rain
before turning back to snow.
Much better than the 4 to 9 inches they had forecast.
And certainly better than the snowfall amounts that the Eastern seaboard is getting.
The birds visit the bird feeder at the table.
