Preparing for the B-word





Good morning, dear friends.  I don't have to tell you what's on its way to my neck of the woods.  It ain't gonna be pretty.  According to the weather people, I will be smack dab in the middle of it.




  And speaking of  the weather peeps, I don't know what I'm not looking forward to the most - the actual storm or the monotonous drone of the weather peeps trying to scare the bejeezus out of us.  They are now calling it a Nor'beaster.   The weather peeps have the nerve to take over all the major networks and preempt all my favorite shows.  Why can't they all meet over at the Weather Channel and talk about it over there?  How can I face the worst storm in history without my Kathie Lee and Hoda?   Or my news sources Access Hollywood and Inside Edition? 



And if you live on the South Sho-wah and need to go to the grocery sto-wah,  you are safe to go today.  We were at Stop&Shop yesterday with a hundred thousand other hysterical people buying up every battery and water bottle in sight.

That's it for now.  I will report in tomorrow (hopefully).  In the meantime, hope this brings a smile to your face.






Stay Safe!

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.

  3. Oh, I do feel for you! We lived, for 25 years, in the Hudson Valley and saw/endured many a snow storm. My sister lives in Boston and is gearing up right now. Ah yes, well, we live in Chapel Hill NC now and, I have to say, the weather is one of the huge reasons we moved. Just came over from Pam's blog and am going to look around: I've seen your name in many comment lists, I think!

  5. Winter didn't seem so bad until Juno showed up <>

  7. Praying you stay safe, well-fed, and warm (especially if power is lost). The worst thing is power outages. The second worst thing is when your dog doesn't have a way to get outside and do his "bidness" because the snow is piled too high at the door. Keep us posted.

  10. Hi there, Katie. I found you on Fairhope Supply Co's sidebar and am so glad I did. I was reading along, thinking what a cool writer your are and then I saw that cute little face at the bottom of your post. I have a shih-tzu, too! We must bond after the beast.

  12. Good luck...while we are not expecting the magnitude of mountainous snow you are expecting ..the weather peeps here are preaching a big one for us...as a survivor of the Blizzard of '78...no school for three weeks and a dog that had snow phobia...I wish the best for you.
