Woke up a few times last night to the sound of tree limbs crashing. The yard is a mess (large pine limbs) and there are some good size trees down in our neighborhood.

Beginning to think we're going to have a double snow day...

Power has flickered on and off a few times here in Burke, but never longer than a couple minutes at a time.

there'll be a run on snow shovels at the Lowe's again tonight. Why do people keep buying snow shovels anyway? What happened to the ones they bought last year and the year before?
