Up to now, I have felt, "Oh great, just what we need. More snow." But these two coming storms have me very nervous. If we get hurricane winds like they are reporting, I am concerned about my big window in my back room. There are a couple of big trees right across the street. If a branch comes down and the wind brings it over and hits that window, I hope I am not in that room. The window is two stories high. I am so used to New England weather. But this time it is different. This is coming straight in from the North. Not the Northeast. Cape Cod is really going to get hit hard.
Thank goodness I have The Pirate with me. His presence has a calming effect for me. All I can think of is if we get the amount of snow they are predicting, there is a good possibility that we will be snowed in and unable to evacuate in the event of an emergency. Claustrophobia wants to kick in big time. You can't imagine just how much snow there already is. The maintenance crew have done their best to try to keep up with it. But they have to go home to their families and rest at sometime. And with six properties to care for it is a massive job.
So far Eastie has had no fires. If there are, the people are not going to be able to get away from their building without climbing over more than six feet of snow drifts. And a lot of sidewalks have not been shoveled. The people have given up trying to keep up with the falling snow. Can't say I blame them.
Illegitimi non carborundum!
I don't want my last words to be, "I wish I had spent more time doing housework"
