Remember when I wrote about how it doesn’t feel like winter because we hadn’t gotten any snow?

Well, evidently Mother Nature is making up for lost time.

Beginning tonight and going right through Wednesday morning, we are getting a blizzard.

Yes. A blizzard. And not just any blizzard. Potentially one for the ages.

All of the news channels are saying it could be one of the worst winter storms our state has ever seen.

My area is looking at 24+ inches of snow. I was okay with the 6 inches we got on Saturday. It was lovely, and I enjoyed playing with new camera in it. But over two feet of snow? That’s a lot of snow.

I won’t lie. Part of me is really excited. Just like I get a little excited when we get a hurricane or a bad thunderstorm (does anyone else get like this?). I don’t really like bad weather, but there is just something about getting a really large scale storm. But then the other part of me kicks in and reminds excited me that this storm is going to be nasty. Not something to be excited about.

I mean, many news places are already calling this storm, “paralyzing”, “catastrophic”, and “life-threatening.”

So next time I question winter, or Mother Nature, remind me of this. Because now I’m ready for winter to just go away.
