The only topic that anyone who lives around here (the DC area) is talking about is SNOW! One of the local stations has preempted their regular programming and is just talking about SNOW!

The snow around here started around noon (apparently earlier in Fairfax, because my friend, Nancy, has a lot more snow on the ground than I do here), and it's been going strong ever since. Until about 4 pm, not much of it was actually sticking to the ground, it was just making things damp. The cars were covered first, and now it's starting to get to the point that you can't see the ground through it. Maybe the ground was just colder in Fairfax.

We're supposed to have about a foot of it today, and more tomorrow! Maybe lots more!

They said it would be another wet, warm, heavy snow, but so far the flakes have been tiny and light. The people on TV are talking about drifting, and the kind of snow that's coming down makes that likely.

So far, this story is pretty boring.

The fun started yesterday, when I went to Safeway.

The first clue that something was up was that there were NO shopping carts out in front! The store was jammed, and there was almost no milk (just a few containers of no fat) in the store. I didn't check the bread, but that was probably low, too. It was difficult shopping without a cart. V8 is hard to hold onto when you've got your arms full of groceries! I got 4 cans of Campbells chunky soup in chicken broccolli cheese flavor for only $5 on sale, though. It seemed like just what I want while watching the snow fall.

Still pretty boring, huh?


Well, there's not really much of anything else I have to say today. I just wanted to let people know that I'm still alive.

Have a great snow!
