In which we hunker down for Pax


It’s Wednesday morning and for the past 24 hours all anyone has talked about is this impending winter storm named Pax.  First of all, who the hell names a storm after Angelina Jolie’s kid????


Second of all, here in North Carolina it’s all about the panic so by yesterday all the milk, bread, and wine were completely gone from the store.  They are calling for snow and/or ice.  Now I don’t mind snow but ice storms suck.  I don’t know if you guys have them but we’ve been through major power losses too many times to count.


They are mostly calling for snow here but in Durham, where my kids are, they are calling for ice.  In fact, Andie received an email from the school saying that they would probably lose power and to prepare.


I suggested to Andie she get some food and a flashlight but of course, she has neither.  Then we called Daniel who informed us “that he wasn’t too concerned about the entire thing” which is so typical. Boys! UGGGHHHH


Meanwhile, it’s already 10:00 and the county school system cancelled but now the weather system is being pushed back so of course, they could have had school.  Let the bitching begin.


I actually love driving around in snow but it’s just stupid to drive in ice.  Normally I would go to the store and get yummy stuff for the house but I’m not allowed to have yummy stuff because of this stupid no-gluten thing.


I won’t have a power outage however, because I have a generator.  This keeps the basics going like heat and some lights downstairs.  Nothing upstairs because I didn’t get an industrial type thing now did I? Also, I don’t love my kids that much so I never cared if they froze or not.


So here I sit, trying to get everything all together for when things like this computer don’t work.  I’m hoping for a great snowfall although I doubt it’ll happen because down here, the weather people are never correct.


If you don’t hear from me then we have no power.  Wherever you are stay safe and good luck.

    Panic buying drives me nuts. It reminds me of Christmas when the world and his wife are fighting in the supermarkets for food and filling 2 shopping trolleys.

    Why? I have no idea because the shops open on Boxing Day!

    Grrrr, bug bear of mine.

      I TOTALLY AGREE with you. Also, the storm wasn’t as impressive as they said as per usual.

    The store was out of wine?!?! TOTALLY unacceptable.

    If I had known that you like to drive in snow I would have invited you to come visit Chicago. This winter has been banana’s.
