We're expecting the first major storm of the season today. Snow is forecasted to start late this morning and before the night is over we may have as much as a foot on the ground.
Of course the local TV stations have gone apoplectic and have initiated "Storm Watch Coverage." Thankfully, Channel 7 has opened the "News 7 Critical Weather Action Center."
In response to the hysteria, many schools have already cancelled classes or moved to half-day schedules. The mayor and governor have ordered all "non-essential" employees to stay home.
In this economy, I'm not sure that I would be comfortable if I were considered "non-essential."
I joined the rest of my community at the grocery store last night so the Foil family is stocked with food. I may have also stopped at the liquor store for provisions.
Assuming that we maintain power throughout this "crisis", I hope to post a picture or two throughout the day.
Wish us luck and stay warm everybody!
