A Winter Storm Watch was issued this afternoon that goes into effect on Sunday and lasts through Monday. Estimates run up to 8 inches of snow possible, but that can range from 0-12 inches. The forecasts here are seldom accurate, especially since we are 50 moles from either DC or Richmond, VA, where the estimates originate.
The only certainty is that people here will have full-scale nervous breakdowns because the word “snow” was uttered. The panic buying will commence, and there won’t be bread or milk anywhere. The super spreader events will be at the grocery stores, and that’s another reason we went this afternoon as soon as we could.
Hopefully, we won’t get any snow at all, and this whole thing will just be another false snow alarm.
Waiting for Hal
It’s Friday afternoon and in sitting in the Funky Green Fiesta
An old picture.
For a change, I took Hal to the doctor this afternoon before went on to the grocery store. A Winter Storm Watch was issued while I was waiting for Hal. The weather statement just reinforced the decision to stock up on groceries before the crowds showed up.
We got home around 1730 and thankfully we beat the crowds. It is time to spend a bitterly cold night warm and safe at home with each other and The Stooges.
