oh, well played Winter Storm Euclid. Tornadoes to represent cylinders? Genius. I look forward to your hexagonal plates & triangular crystals—

The day after Christmas, I was up at 4a.m. with an ill little boy, reading about the Christmas tornadoes “Euclid” decided to give the good people of North America. The predictions for what the storm would bring my way had people a little in a tizzy, doing their required runs to the store for “emergency supplies”. Which means….milk and bread.
There’s nothing like watching people get ready for a storm to let you know ahead of time who you do not want on your zombie apocalypse team.
As it turned out, Winter Storm Euclid wasn’t that …uh…problematic after all. Less than a foot of snow. No biggie.
( as a geek, I really hope the winter storm names catch on. I can’t wait until Winter Storm Gandalf hits. You know…’cause the roads will be closed … and ”You shall not pass!” ? This is going to be so much FUN!)
Sir Snugglemuffin couldn’t wait to get out into the snow. It hasn’t really snowed this season too much yet, just light dustings a few times that didn’t hang around for long.
He’s the third child of mine to wear this snowsuit. It was passed on to us probably almost 10 years ago now from someone I knew through blogging at the time.
Our creek in the cold winter is quiet. In warmer weather, I can hear it rushing from my bedroom. I find it’s winter silence eerie & lonely.
