The Ice Storm a cometh!
A co-worker who lives near the Kentucky border called off work for today TWO DAYS AGO! When it was 77 degrees outside. But she knew that the Ice Storm a cometh! And her boyfriend forbad her to drive in the ice. Forbidding happened! It's an impending Ice Storm for goodness sake!
Schools are shutting! The stores are emptying of milk and bread! There are contingency plans for the contingency plan! Because the Ice Storm a cometh!
Pretty soon, we’ll be incased in our homes like Clark Kent and his Fortress of Solitude. Or we will have perilously skidded out in ditches to become frozen like they say the dinosaurs were.
I, quite frankly, am looking forward to my house of ice. I plan to deck it out like the Ice Hotel. I have enough stuffed animals to make myself a fur blanket. Tigger the Dog won’t mind if I skin her babies in the name of style, right? She might mind when it’s too slick to go outside and have a pee. Perhaps now is a good time to toilet train her. I’ll let husband tackle that one; getting an 80 lbs. dog with anxiety issues onto a toilet to pee. Actually, that might be worth the emergency shut down of everything…
Sorry. I’m being flip.
And the Ice Storm a cometh!
I’m off to work.
