The Blizzard is Coming! The Blizzard is Coming!

Nothing like a good winter storm to shake up the doldrums of January and February. I hope the groundhog doesn't get lost in the blinding snow tomorrow.

Human behavior is such fun to observe prior to a storm. Crowds descend on grocery stores like locusts to stock up on milk, bread and soup. C'mon people the event is only going to last a day or two at the most. Why have you all decided to grocery shop on the same day this week? Do you really not have enough milk to last 48 hours in your home? What are you going to do with all that extra milk when you lose electrical power? I suppose in a winter storm, you can just stick the gallon of milk outside the door to keep it cold.

I like snow days because they force us to break our schedules. They make us slow down for a moment and look at our lives and the busyness we aspire to. They give us the opportunity to take a deep breath and relax.

So, I hope those of you with a snow day tomorrow get to sleep late, breathe deeply and play a game of Scrabble with a loved one.
