Emergency provisions are called for

A winter storm warning kicks into effect tonight and will last until Wednesday morning. By that time, we could have up to 14" of snow. The ol' Gal has lived in Chicagoland all her life and knows what's required for times like this.

Cat food (check)
Cat litter (check)
Milk (check)
Coke (check)
Vodka … DAMN! I don't know if I have enough hootch to last me! Must stop at the store tonight!

I have to come in tomorrow for a client meeting. But I am seriously hoping for a snow day on Wednesday.

First of all, I'd simply like the day off. Secondly, I hate listening to people whine. It's winter in Chicago. WE KNOW THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN!!!!! That's why our closets contain boots with treads and thick mittens and down coats that make us all look like Ralphie's younger brother in A Christmas Story.

Snow can be pretty. Snow can be fun. Surviving a good snow storm can leave you feeling like you're made of stern stuff. And it gives you an excuse to drink tea laced with brandy. (Must remember to pick up brandy, too.)

  1. Now I know what I've been missing during the last three snow storms!

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
