Checking the news this morning, the upcoming blizzard seems to be on top of everyone’s mind on this side of the continent … and rightly so — it’s a major storm … or two storms really, merging around Boston somewhere.
Last night, before going to bed, we watched a Boston news channel, stores were open all night and people were stocking up on foods and water. The line-ups were incredible! Some gas stations are already sold out.
Here, we’re under a blizzard warning, but it won’t start snowing until late this evening … perhaps around 9 o’clock. Don’t know how hard hit we’ll be here, but I have a feeling Nova Scotia will get it worse. In NYC it has already started to snow, I just read.
We’ve lived here, in this building, for four and half year now, and had ONE, short, power outage. That wasn’t due to weahter, they’d been digging outside and hit something. When we lived in Quebec, in the house, we got the occasional outage, though. I had a number to the hydro company, that I used to call. An automated voice told me which address I was calling from and what time the power would be back. I was pretty impressed with that! 🙂
Reading this word «blizzard» over and over again, only reminds me of a song from my childhood. I learned the lyrics by heart at an early stage and still remember them. Nowadays, I can hardly listen to it without tearing up…
Stay safe, my friends.
