Don't you threaten me, Buddy!
The fear mongering has started. Doom they say! Doom....the sky is falling and it's going to dump 20-30 cm of snow. Oh big deal.
Oh that's right the last time this happened they called in the army and all of the prairie provinces chuckled smugly.
I'm all about preplanning. Cancel whatever isn't essential. Stock up on whatever I'd need in the next two to three days if for whatever reason the roads were impassable. Perhaps even visit the liquor barn and get a couple bottles of nice wine to go with that winter stew and crusty bread. Sit back and enjoy watching the view from the windows.
Venture out on foot in the snowshoes for some exercise and to survey the newly painted landscape. Dig the skating rink out a little and glide a long under the falling snow, defend the snow fort against the war waging kidlets. Shoveling is the only activity that is essential. I've got a collection of craft supplies for the kids, magazines and knitting projects for myself. Though honestly, I can't imagine this snowmageddon offering much more than a diversion and a guarantee that the Groundhog will not see his shadow tomorrow.
