I think I'm ready

We have The Mother of All Winter Storms coming tonight. Well, maybe it's more like an aunt, you know, the one that nobody likes and never makes cookies. Anyway, it's going to be bad any minute now. It was supposed to be bad already but now it's going to be bad overnight. Probably. Definitely by early morning. Really.

I'm prepared. I think.

Snowblower: Fueled and tested.

Car: New wiper blades installed; gas tank full.

Gloves: Purchased.

Alarm: Set much earlier than I'd like.

Panic Mode: Engaged.

I think I'm ready. Hopefully I'll make it to work in one piece. Wish me luck! (I'm really hating this winter),

Good luck with the storm. Hopefully it isn't too bad!

Are you snowed in yet? Hope everything is OK, seriously.

Ours has melted (it wasn't going to stick around more), and we may get more rain/snow on Monday. Oh boy.

Did you survive?!

Forget that stuff. What about the really important things? Did you get enough pizza, soda and cookies to survive?!

Good luck!

DC: It wasn't. I think we got 4 or 5 inches. Not nearly as bad as I feared.

Florinda: Thanks. The drive to work wasn't great, but it could have been much worse. That's probably why I was an hour EARLY to work!

Cookie: I had a bag of M&M's with me in the car. I figured that would allow me to survive at least a day before I need to eat the steering wheel.

"Panic mode"?

That's what you get for watching the local news.
