It's that time of the year again ladies! If you live in the Northeast, like us, then you too are bracing for another random snow storm in the middle of Winter. How odd right??
It's times like these when we get to look around and see how many people live interrupted lives. Supermarkets are swamped with worried people who are stocking up on essentials. The news channels are casting a gloomy next few days. We are keeping our fingers crossed that no one's life is interrupted by power outages or worse.
Luckily this is happening on a weekend. If you have to brave the storm make sure you're safe and that you have your place stocked with some healthy staples so that you don't find yourself eating an entire box of Cocoa Puffs.
By the way, LOVE the name: Winter Storm Nemo! Is it just me or can you also hear Ellen DeGeneres' voice singing "just keep snowing, just keep snowing."
