Hello from the Blizzard of 2009
We are supposed to get 14 inches of snow or more by the time the storm ends Saturday night, but right now, about 10 inches of it is tearing through the air at 40 mph. Lucky the dog was outside at midnight, answering the call of nature - if it is true that animals speak at midnight on Christmas, I didn't hear what he said over the wind (probably better that I didn't, though). Half the household has to work tomorrow - Walgreens is open, as is security at our university, so two will be leaving early to get to work, keeping any Christmas celebrating postponed until tomorrow night. I wish everyone a great holiday, and may all your dreams come true. I thank goodness that I have an insulated house with running water and central heating to face this storm with, instead of how folks had to face bad winters in the past here in Nebraska. Merry Christmas to all!
