Preparing for the Big Storm

The big one is coming. It's all the buzz on TV...it could be as "bad as the storm of 82'", so they are predicting, or saying.  Is predicting or saying about the same thing in this age of advanced weather tracking tools? 

I remember that storm of 82', having school off for the whole week.  I recall that was back in the days before all the fancy snow melt chemicals were invented and snow removal guys just threw sand down on the roadways to try to create traction.  By the time the storm of 82' ended, it all melted away, I think we were building sand castles on the highways with all that leftover traction substance.

We're bracing here at the Keeper abode for the "big storm" of 20-11.

How do we brace?

I headed to the grocery store at 7am to load the pantry up.  If I didn't the five of us would have been feasting on fighting over tortilla chips, Captain Crunch and sticks of salted butter.  Mmmmm, Mmmmm.  Oh come to think of it we have fresh fish in the freezer, except the kids would rather starve than eat fish.  Anyway, we are stocked up now and I am prepared to make days worth of comfort foods.  I guess I was late on the rush to the store as the bread shelves were empty and the last gallon of 1% milk was nabbed by moi. I hope all the other late comers' flavor is thick and fatty whole milk, cause that's all they gots now. And, I didn't even have to have a show down for that last gallon of low fat calcium building beverage.

Now if Mother Nature can just hold the ice and snow off till the school day finishes.  Hear that Mother Nature hold it off we have no desire to lengthen the school year.

Oh, and Mr. Groundhog, we'll be talking later!

Hi-ho-hi-ho it's off to work I go....

Nellie- Don't be fooled by the workout clothes I am wearing...they just have a high comfort factor. Comfort is key while watching ice and snow accumulate.

It's a must to prepare as soon as possible for the storm, no matter how huge or how small it is. Whenever there's an incoming storm, I always stormproof my windows, shutters, and doors to make sure nothing will penetrate my house in Bay Area. With the San Francisco windows I had installed was pretty durable and I have been using it for years now.

Tracy- This big storm was the snow kind of storm, the kind that has you shoveling for days. Our recent storms have been the tornado kind...no warning just a blasting siren telling you to run like a bat out of hell to the basement (something you don't have in San Fran).
