Good Morning, Nearly-to-Weekend-Eve Friends.

Can we be this far along in the rolling week already?
Let's check.....

Yep. The calendar agrees.

We can also all agree on the importance of the following:
Days to the Season: 279
Days to Christmas Day: 321
We are but a scant five days off now from the second of the Milestones on our journey to Christmas, the 1/4 Season marker.
(So close to the start of the 2nd quarter!)

Warm weather (for February) continued yesterday but it will take a cool, wet turn today.
We stand just under 40 degrees here in the capital city at this hour.

Have a Totally and Thoroughly Thrilling Thursday, Folks.
And start getting yourself mentally ready for a Wonderous Weekend just ahead!

It was a busy night at work, lots of people preparing for the big storm. Customers were saying one school in the area has already said they will be closed for Friday. I talked to my management about what I should do if I can't make it in, so my plan will be in place, I am not going to risk my life for a few pounds of hamburger.
I don't think you'll be getting quite as much snow out your way, but it still won't be any picnic. There are a lot of scoffers saying "weather hype," but my understanding is that the major models are agreeing on this one, so a big fat hairy Nor'easter is definitely on the way. (I have a feeling that some of those scoffers are the same ones who will be buying gallons of milk at the last minute ...) I'll be watching the forecasts tonight and battening down the hatches. We're well stocked, so we should be okay.

Another reason I'm sure there will be a nasty storm ... one of our agency's clients is an electric utility company, and they informed us yesterday that they want to run an ad on Monday about their response to the storm ...

She then goes on to describe the contents of her purse on one particular day: "loose dollar bills, jam-packed wallet, a winter hat, a hardback novel, a thank-you card with a dog on it, Advil, one glove, a travel zip bag with 3-ounce bottles, mints, my checkbook, cough suppressant pills, a bottle of perfume, deodorant, contact lenses, a comb, an apple, and a Christmas ornament...Yeah. That's my world." Later she adds that "one woman's kitchen is another person's crime scene." When I read about the Christmas ornament, I felt as if Hoda were one of us!!! Just had to share!
I like Hoda Kotb! I like her and Kathie Lee Gifford. It seems a lot of people make fun of Kathie Lee but I have always like her and always will. (To each their own! ) I think her and Hoda are a great team! I like that she found a Christmas ornament in her purse!

so you will run an ad that says
"Yes, we your electric company have responded to this storm by ordering an ad be printed so if the power goes out you will know we are here! "

Significant snowstorm threatening Thursday night and Friday.

An Alberta clipper currently tracking southeastward through the Dakotas is expected to track across the us midwest tonight and Thursday then track just south of Lake Erie on Friday. This clipper may intensify into a winter storm as it approaches Southern Ontario.
Many parts of Southern and Eastern Ontario may receive 15 cm (about 5 inches)of snow from this storm by Friday evening. Some areas may receive higher amounts, with 25 cm (about 10 inches) not out of the question

not quite as much snow as you, but still a fair pile

This is going to hit us today but we are only going to get rain and maybe some sleet overnight from it.
