Is it Christmas? Is there a holiday I don’t know about? There is excitement in the air. Everyone’s talking about it. The kids on the school bus, the waitresses at the pizza place, the teachers and of course, the media.
I bet if I went to the grocery store right now there would be quite a buzz going on there too. I’m talking of course about the impending snow that is forecast to hit much of the Northeast, with blizzard conditions possible in many sections of the Mid-Atlantic States.
It is a great thing that we have these forecasts to alert us to severe conditions so you can be prepared. But I always find it amazing how snow storms and severe weather can cause as much excitement and rumors as a celebrity who has been caught by the paparazzi.
Anticipation is also part of this excitement. I live in the area slightly north of the big snow but yet you never know. These are exciting times. Will we get 5 inches or 10? Only time will tell.
Of course I knew that a big storm was coming since it’s in the Farmers’ Almanac. What I didn’t know is that it would come this weekend rather than next, but good old El Nino has thrown our forecasts off slightly.
I don’t think we’ll have as much snow as people south of us, but as my ten year old daughter (who is routing for a huge snowfall) likes to remind me … “No one can tell what Mother Nature is going to do.”
