First we have been studying the weather as part of our homeschool academic co-op. We have learned how to make our own barometers and thermometer.
We have learned what barometric pressure means and what it indicates. We have study clouds conditions and have been studying snow for the past week.
This week Doug again indicated we would be in for possibly recorded breaking snow and winds. This time it was different, he was urging people to prepare for three to five days of being stuck at home. He even put an emergency response information guide on the website and urged people to print it out in case they lost power. Ok, no power means no heat. This was going to be epic.
That put me into overdrive so I put together the menu plan, got all the meds, raided the library again and grocery store. Friday morning dawn and I had forgotten my Costco run. The snow was scheduled to start at 10am and Costco doesn't open until 10am! YIKES! So we headed to Costco around 8am to wait outside because we knew there would be a line. I knew this was serious because Costco opened at 8AM. We were in and out in less than 20 minutes. With the car loaded with previsions and the gas tank full we headed home. The snow started to fall as we pulled into the driveway at 9:30AM.
And it didn't stop snowing for almost 30 hours……..
