Preparing for the Storm!!

Perhaps if you live on Mars, you may not know that the Jersey Shore 
is preparing for snow.
We have gotten snow before...I'm not sure what all the fuss is about...
but the ole' tele is consumed with weather reports and updates.
The updates come about once per minute and actually run right into each other.
My Facebook feed is a sea of predictions...
my favorites are the wine estimations, we are in the 
"must have 12 bottles on hand" category.
On a scale of 1 - 10, we have moved to a 7, which means buying milk and bread is a must.
If you drive the shore roads right now,
you will not pass a truck that does not have a plow attached.

I have prepared also...

 with fresh flowers in the house, of course...

aren't they beautiful??
But yes I have prepared, with our favorite foods in the frig,
and my favorite flowers in my direct line of sight.
Most women get the food thing, it's not about running out,
it's about having all the foods that we routinely eat when it snows.

Are you in the snow's path this weekend??
Are you prepared??

  1. Good morning, Debbie. Your flowers are beautiful. I think the weather reports are a bit much after awhile. They come on much too often with their reports and closings. The snow has not even started yet. I do understand the need for comfort food in the hosue during a snow storm, it is a must. Stay warm and safe. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  5. Oh, I hope you guys are not too inundated with the white stuff. Sounds like you are well prepared. Having lots of red wine would work for me. :) LOVE that blue mason jar.

  6. I think it's mostly going to miss us up here - that's what all the minute by minute weather stories are saying anyhow...It's a weather obsessed world! Love the pretty flowers and can't wait to see your snow pics!!

  8. Yes! Here is West Virginia, it started about 8:30 this morning. Four hours later, seven inches of snow and it's not letting up. I've got all I need and pray the power stay ON for everyone. Safe wishes for you.

  12. I saw that wine estimation on Facebook, too!! I have been thinking about and all my blogging friends alone that East Shore!!!
    I hope you all keep power so you can let us know you are okay.
    Speaking of wine.....we ran completely out! Louis Dean is diabetic and doesn't really need the extra sugar anyway. Not sure how long it will be before we break down and stock up again! Maybe we will become teetotalers!!! All I really need is water, coffee and iced tea!!!
    Stay warm and cozy, sweet friend!!!

  13. I guess I live on Mars....well down here at the bottom of the world is close. Nope...I didn't know; but it looks as if you got it all covered, Debbie. What else does a gal need except beautiful flowers and some tucker in the fridge to stave the effects of a deluge of snow. Stay warm....and have a lovely weekend.

  17. .3" predicted here (hardly worth measuring) so I should be able to go for fresh flowers tomorrow. Yours are so inviting.
    Ponder this, the people in Mars know about the storm warnings for the East Coast.

  18. Yes I've been hearing about it, and my daughter who now lives in Madison, Alabama had only a half day of work and their schools are closed due to icy roads and about an inch of snow! My daughter being the true blue Minnesotan that she grew up as is loving her new home! I hope you all fare well, and that it's not going to be too horrible, or dangerous. Your flowers are the best touch yet! Stay safe.

  19. The winter storm came through here last night. Six inches, which is pretty good for Arkansas. Be careful and stay warm!

  20. Have fun! We've ended up with 10-12" and are now on the back end of the storm.

  21. Hope you survive this storm without too much turmoil! Still never understand how people further south get worse winter weather than we do!

  22. Ah, those flowers are gorgeous and such an important part of storm prep, or at least should be. What a great idea, to make sure you have all that loveliness on hand for the storm. In Wisconsin, we're behind that weather system, not in front of it. I do chuckle at our local TV weather. It's call SKYWARN 13, as though all weather is synonymous with impending doom. Stay safe and warm. Enjoy those wonderful flowers.

  25. Yes, we got plenty of warning so we are prepared. I even moved the cars closer to the road so we won't have too much driveway to shovel out.

  26. If it snows please make lots of pretty pictures for us!!? Stay warm and safe my friend!!

  27. I always enjoy your positive outlook. I love that you have flowers to enjoy during the storm. I am happy. You have food in case you can't get out. Stay safe and warm and know that you are in my prayers dear friend. Hugs~

  28. Hello Debbie!:) Such beautiful flowers! :) Our weather here is mild, and I have only seen snow twice in my life,...it lasted one daY!! Stay safe and warm.

  29. The snow is supposed to move south of us but we are hearing a LOT about the snow you are going to get. For once the Arctic air we are expereincing is a GOOD thing - keeping that storm from reaching us here in Ontario. I hope you are safe, Debbie!

  30. Hope you made it through the storm ok, heard about a lot of destruction near the shore, but most of the word hear was focused on Washington and New York. Those flowers are just lovely, always good to bring some spring hope to the situation :)
