It Smells Like Sleet

That distinctive icy edge that settles in one's sinuses is in the air. I don't know what that will mean. It's so quiet. Beest-o doesn't seem to care about anything, as usual. If animals do sense disaster, there's no disaster coming.

School's been cancelled for tomorrow and probably will be for Tuesday. Events are being postponed. Blahblahblah... you know. Time drags when you're waiting.

So here's a few things to read and think about

Every move you make...

School cancelled?

Lucky buggers.

The dire warnings seem to be getting downgraded a bit around here...hope they're right. Still, we're prepared anyway....just in case. Nothing like a North American potential disaster to bring folks together. In a few months we can all say "remember when?".

TSB- Parents are already complaining. ;)

Lawless- and let's all hope we're saying it from our same homes, computers and furnishings.
