There is a snow storm barreling our way. Living out on Cape Cod, it isn't the 12+ inches of snow that will cause us problems; it's the wind and the tides. Losing power is almost a certainty out here, so I have begun my pre-storm preparations.
I didn't go to the store and buy milk and batteries. I'm not baking bread or checking our canned good previsions. Nope, I charging my laptops and washing my favorite pair of cozy pajamas. The printer is spitting out manuscripts of overdue beta reads, and I've pulled out my old dictionary and thesaurus. A major snowstorm means shoveling, traffic, and kids home from for most people. I choose to see it as the perfect opportunity to curl up on the couch with my writing, sip a cup of hot tea from water I warmed over the fire, and watch my kids re-discover board-games.
Stay warm and greetings for a soon-to-be very snowy Cape Cod!
