ACCUMULATIONS...SNOW ACCUMULATION OF 18 TO 24 INCHES IN THE EASTERN SUBURBS OF WASHINGTON DC...AND 24 TO 30 INCHES IN THE WESTERN SUBURBS. THE CITY OF WASHINGTON DC IS EXPECTED TO RECEIVE AROUND 24 INCHES.
And, of course, we're in the western suburbs. Sigh.
But we're ready. Wood is chopped and sitting by the wood stove. Shovels are brought in. Books are checked out. Groceries are in the house (staples we had; treats we had not). Patterns for sewing projects are printed. New games were purchased and delivered at 8:30 p.m. Thursday night. Attitudes are still being adjusted (but that's on me).
My apologies in advance for the plethora of snow posts that will likely follow in the next couple of days/weeks. If the storms of '09-'10 are any indication, well, just sorry. (Ahem, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.)
P.S. I won't lie: looking through those old posts significantly raises my anxiety over this storm. This snow is coming overnight! We're going to wake up Saturday morning with snow up to the roof. Breathe, erin, just breathe.
P.P.S. Thursday afternoon school was cancelled for Friday. You know, before anything even fell.
