Before the storm

We’ve heard about this one for a few days now, even if the details aren’t very… detailed. “Measurable snow” is all I’m hearing, except for the “several inches of snow and freezing rain” part that kicks it all off.

But when someone from Minnesota warns someone in Wisconsin that there’s a lot of snow coming, you really have to pay attention. (Thanks, mlegan!)

I just got a gallon of gas to mix up for the snowthrower (found the additive packets in the garage right where they should be, thank you Mr. Beth). Picked up some microwave popcorn for the kids, too. And a dozen long neck Point Amber Classics. Because you can never be too prepared for this kind of thing.

I’ve got plenty of yarn and I’m not afraid to use it. In fact, I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve only gotten a few rows done on the Moebius the last couple of days, and while I’m itching to start a new project (sweater, anyone?) there are too many things on the needles to justify it. But maybe I could swing by the library this afternoon and see if I can check out all the EZ books again. Maybe I could start my Stash Swap mittens?

So, just for the record, here is the driveway Before:

  1. Ooh, sounds like fun! Stay nice and cozy πŸ™‚ Our snow keeps coming at night and melting by 6 pm πŸ˜›

  2. Sorry about all that snow. Just wanted you to know I’m done with meetings and now in shorts and a Tshirt for the rest of the day (though I might have to dress again later for dinner with clients). But don’t feel bad for me in the hawaii sun this week, as next week I now go to metro New Jersey and Cleveland and Sandusky boom-boom-boom next week Tuesday-Friday.

    Stay warm, and enjoy the beer! ilyh

  3. Hmm, I think all those places have yarn stores, too. I will go check. πŸ™‚

  4. See? Three comments already! You’re winning!

    Take my advice and get a kegorator for those days of measurable snow. And for the rest of the days as well.

    I gave up new knitting projects for Lent so, although I am not jealous of the snow (sort of), I am jealous of newly started bits of string.
