There is a chance that this may be my last blog post for a few days.
I’m sure I will miss it much more than any of you will miss me. Today and tomorrow, the storm of the century is hitting the Washington DC area, and some of our neighbors have already lost power. We have prepared as much as we could, with kerosene for our heater, water in all of our available pitchers, flashlights and oil lamps sitting out on the kitchen table. I also gave the floor a good vacuuming and dried my last load of laundry (as if that will last long!).
As soon as I’m finished typing this post out, I am hopping in the shower (where I hope I will NOT be taking my last warm shower…).
As scary as snow storms like this can be, with the real possibility of not having power for several days (which not only means COLD temps in the house, but also no movies for the kids and no computer for me) I am feeling very peaceful about this storm. You could even say I’m feeling Fishful. I am looking forward to a few days in the house with my family, a few days of simplicity, without the option to drive anywhere or be anywhere else. Together.
After all, February IS Optimism month.
This storm is going to be awesome!
Plus, didn’t I mention that snow is really good for pictures? That’s something to be happy about, right?
PS–If you don’t hear from me for a few days, rest assured that we’ll be fine. I’ve scheduled the Bloggography Shutter Speed challenge post to go up on Tuesday morning….along with a special related giveaway! Please stop by!
