The National Weather Service is calling for 5-6 inches of snow tonight through tomorrow morning, and then another whopping 8-11 tomorrow night, mixed in with some sleet. Even if we got the minimum amount that's still a ton of snow. I'm finding myself looking up to the sky, but I'm not shrugging this time.
I'm not worried about being snowed in (although I'm not thrilled with the idea). What I'm more concerned with is a power outage. I don't know enough about the appliances in our new house (okay let's be honest I wouldn't know enough about the appliances in any house) to know if our hot water heater and gas fireplace will work in the event that we lose electricity. So let's hope the ice/sleet doesn't take out the power!
I have plenty of books to keep me company and enough leftovers to last me a few days should I need them to. I'm getting the laundry and dishes out of the way tonight. What else do I need to make a couple of snow days happy and not cabin-fever inducing? What are your favorite things to do when you're snowed in?
