The Queen Mary2 took off from Brooklyn yesterday afternoon around 5pm heading to Southampton, with many passengers aboard who were with us down through the Caribbean, making the full Southampton to Southampton loop. I can only imagine the bobbing and weaving the ship will be doing thanks to the massive winds in the Atlantic. No. No. No.
Here in Bedford, the storm is a big nothingburger. Windy but very little actual snow. Our town Highway Department Boyz have been busy earning overtime, coming through the streets with plows and sand trucks all night long. It’s a colossal non-event.
In Rhode Island however, it’s a different story. 12-14″ of snow due. Real ocean winds. Power outages likely. Swanton, I suspect you’ll get some high winds today.
We’re snug as bugs in a rug. Still sipping coffee. Grimacing at the pile of bills and at the even larger pile of laundry that was on yesterday’s to do list. We did get to Shoprite yesterday and as expected, craziness. But there was plenty of food on the grocery store shelves so now our larder is all set for a few days in case we do get snowed in. Unlikely.
No one won the PowerBall last night. Neither of us had one number. Not one. There’s always tonight’s Mega Millions.
Happy Thursday, even to you caelestis, laughing at us from your perch in sunny California. Speaking of California, any deep thoughts from you now that recreational marijuana is legal there??
