Well, wouldn’t you know it. The day after I bump down the snow pictures, the weathermen are telling us to brace for a big one here along the eastern seaboard.
All right then. On my way into work this morning, I stopped at Home Depot to restock my supply of ice melt (I picked up something called “Blizzard Wizard,” as opposed to the salt I normally throw down. We’ll have to see how it does.) Despite the forecast, Home Depot was a ghost town, though they’re obviously bracing for the rush, as they had placed near the front door a large cardboard sign on which someone had scrawled in marker SNOW ZONE, with an arrow pointing toward a large display of shovels, salt, spreaders, and snow blowers.
Apart from the salt — which I depleted during the storm last week — we’re fairly well stocked and should have no problem riding out the fifteen inches they’re forecasting. But I’m a snow skeptic — I usually don’t get too wound up or excited about the snow until I actually see it falling.
So, you weather watchers . . . stay tuned.
