Good morning! “Wot’s up?” Couldn’t resist – we had bonus book club night at my home last night and I made Wot, a spicy chicken dish which is popular in Ethiopia. This was for our review of Cutting For Stone…. which… with a little luck, will be posted yet today 😀
In the mean time….. the good news is, this past week has been weather in the high 30’s to mid 40’s…. for Minnesota this time of year that is practically a heat wave! In my excitement for spring, I went out last weekend and bought these super cute sandals:
Are they not just awesome?
The bad news is…. this is our current weather forecast:
* Timing and location: a winter storm is affecting the Brainerd
lakes region… Saint Croix River Valley… and an area from
Hayward to Phillips tonight. The storm will produce heavy snow
across these areas… with the heaviest snow expected to fall
overnight until mid morning Wednesday.
* Snow accumulations: 10 to 14 inches of snow is expected by
late Wednesday afternoon.
* Main impact: heavy snow combined with northeast winds of 15 to
30 mph could cause power outages due to downed trees and power
A Winter Storm Warning means heavy snow will occur. Expect
extremely slippery and dangerous snow-covered roads. If you must
travel… exercise extreme caution and allow extra time to reach
your destination. Let someone know your travel Route and expected
arrival time. Have a working cell phone in case you become
stranded. Keep a winter survival kit in your vehicle… including a
flashlight… food… and water.
Don’t worry – I have changed my shoes. 😛 Off to work to see what is happening. I am going to guess most people are snowed in… I live by a major highway and have four-wheel drive so I am usually ok to get where I need to go.
If you have real spring where you live… please tell me about it. I need green” stories. 😀
