I slept in this morning, all warm and comfortable, secure in the knowlege that I had done everything on my list to get ready for the snow and ice we were warned about for today. Groceries were bought, all of the laundry is finished, materials for the costumes I want to make this weekend were purchased, and washed. All is ready.
We are supposed to get between .5 and .9 inches of ice.
Which is soooo fun, let me tell you. Parts of Des Moines are already without power, the they were supposed to be on the low end of things.
So, I am ready. I have a bunch of things to do if the power goes out (although I can't remember the last time that happened), and we have plenty of warm clothes and blankets. The car is already covered in ice, and the little bit of snow we have also has a nice coating.
And this is only the beginning...
