Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks

The pine stays green in winter… wisdom in hardship.
Norman Douglas

School was cancelled last night, the kids are still sleeping and the adults are all sitting around holding our breaths.  It’s just started snowing here early this morning – Nemo (seriously?) is on his way. The perfect winter storm, they’re all calling this.

See the dark purple region on this map?

That’s where we live. It’s hard to imagine what it means, numbers like that just don’t make any sense. Over 2 feet of snow – from one storm? Inconceivable.

We’ve been getting “Severe” alerts (Extraordinary threat to life or property) since about 10pm last night. They want us off the streets. They want us to stay put in our houses. They want us to have food and water stored up for a few days. They want us not to be stupid.

It’s a little disconcerting because it’s only snow. Snowfalls in New England are beautiful and everyone loves their gentle beauty right? But to poo-poo this storm, after what we saw with Sandy is to be nothing short of foolish.

With new emerging weather patterns, no one really knows what is going to happen.

We’ve got our flashlights. We have enough food and water for the kids, chickens, and dog. And I have a few good books lined up to read by candlelight if necessary.

Now we just wait.

See you next week.

As always, happy weekend everyone, health and happiness (and safety) to your flock.

Tell you what, if you want that chicken and egg garland at the top of the page, leave a comment and I’ll choose a random person on Monday.

Why not spread the chicken love, right?
