I’m not gonna lie. This Winter Storm Juno business is kind of exciting.
The kids have a snow day tomorrow. I have two gallons of milk in the fridge and two loaves of Wonder bread sitting on my counter. (The Wonder bread is a little silly because we don’t actually eat that much bread, but it seemed to be the thing to buy.) And Jeremy and I are camped out in our living room, peering out the window for visual updates of the snow on Montauk Highway and watching the Weather Channel which has been both informative and entertaining. It’s starting to get a little repetitive though, because there are only so many ways you can say, “Hello Northeast. You are getting a ton of snow during the next 24 hours.” They’ve kept it interesting by letting us know it could be up to three feet and we might even get “thunder-snow.” Which just sounds really cool. So well done, weather channel.
I’m praying that we don’t lose power. Because that would make it all much less fun. But assuming we have a normal snow day or two, I’m looking forward to it all. I’m excited to be safe and sound in our home for the next few days. I’m excited for our kids, who are looking forward to staying home from school. They will have time to play, but we’ll also get some work done. (Check it out, Leslie and Sarah… It’s like I’m homeschooling my kids :). Christian will read a lot and also be working on learning Algebra using the Khan Academy. He told me that he gets bored sometimes in school, so we’re working to find alternative educational things for him to do. And Ellee will get a good head start on her work for the week, as well as enjoy some time with one of her Christmas presents called Roominate. It’s a fun engineering toy for girls and she loves it.
So this would be my 10:50pm, Monday Night blizzard update. Hopefully there will be more to come soon. If your here and local to Long Island, stay safe and warm!
