This is the second NorthEaster (nor'easter) snow storm in a week. Gosh are we lucky!
Last week's just left a dusting of snow but this one looks like it may be good for from 8 to 18 inches, depending on which hysterical weather man you listen to.
Let me see now. I live in the SouthWest corner of Connecticut and when we get hit with a NorthEaster do they cancel each other out or are we in a WestEaster, an EastWester or since we are at the corner of the state is that a NorthSouther or a SouthNorther?
Of course since these terms are always abbreviated that could be a nor'souther, a sou'norther or a wes'easter or an eas'wester. Ow! I just bit my tongue.
But wait? What if the storm turns and starts going in the opposite direction? Then does my nor'easter become an eas'norther? My brain hurts.
Well, the weather people in Washington DC said it should last another 10 hours so since we still have electric light I'm just gonna go back to my snug warm bed and get back to reading an escapist novel while listening to the branches breaking off the trees.
