Well, the National Weather Service backed off its Winter Storm Watch last night and downgraded the alert to a Winter Weather Advisory. Around lunchtime today, they backtracked and issued a Blizzard Warning for East Central Illinois. Haven’t seen one of those in a long, long time. We’re on the northern edge of the 3″-6″ snow band, according to the AccuWeather graphic at right.
We’ll be OK. Thanks to Sharon’s magnificent Christmas meal, we’ve got leftovers to last through next week! Thanks to my employer, I don’t need to leave the house for work until next Wednesday.
So the next few days will be a pleasant respite from the normal work routine, a time to rest, recharge, reorganize, and look forward to a happy 2013. I hope you have the opportunity for the same.
