The Ice Storm Cometh

As of 4:30pm on Thursday Dec 19th, the weather network is calling for an ice storm from tomorrow morning through Saturday, followed by, you guessed it!  an ice storm from Saturday night till Sunday morning.

Now, I have a bit of a quibble with Mother Nature about this.  This was the weekend all my girlfriends from back in the day at University were planning to revive our old tradition of a Girl’s Christmas dinner.  If the Goddesses are listening, if would be just fab if you could just scootch that storm a little to the east or west, ‘kay?

However, that said, I would be lying if I didn’t admit that I (not so) secretly love extreme weather.  I find blackouts fun (before you yell at me about how difficult they are on various groups of people, believe me, I know, I am not wishing harm on anyone.  I am just saying my *personal experience* of blackouts tends to be positive.)  and love how people tend to pull together and become so much more friendly and open with each other when faced with a mutual challenge.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all could be that supportive and understanding of life’s challenges on a daily basis?
