Okay, the fact that they're calling it a "monster" snow storm on TV is a little disconcerting. Not so much here in the DC Metro area (at least I don't think so but also haven't clicked into the news all day). From what I understand it's going to hit the northern states the hardest. How are those people going to strap on their boots and heave mountains of snow onto the already existing mountains of snow? I'm sure Massachusetts (yes, you Leominster) is giggling a little and rightfully so. Has to be kind of funny to watch the "south" run around Home Depot buying salt and shovels like they're frankincense and myrrh but I can't stop keep thinking about my good friend who is due to have her baby any day now. She lives in Pennsylvania and mild contractions have been underway for her for a few days already. Her husband works an hour away and her family is even less close by. I wouldn't put it past her to drive herself to the hospital when the time comes so let's all hope it doesn't come to that. Say a little prayer for her that this bluebundle of love will arrive safe and soundly when Daddy is home between the hours of 7pm and 6am.
Godspeed Blythe, we're rooting for you!
