To date, nearly all the snow we've had (including last December's blizzard) has been pretty dry and powdery. Word is that this batch is going to be wet and heavy.

Assuming an almost inevitable loss of power, we already have plans in place for burning the sideboard and eating the cats, if necessary.

Cats require marinating you should start now.

Cats are good with a wild rice stuffing and a mustard/honey glaze

Uh oh. Now Drudge has the flashing siren going -- never a good sign. 20-30 inches for the DC area?

Shut down DC. And by DC I mean Congress & the White House.

Last prediction I saw was for 36". I've shoveled three times so far, starting last night, keeping ahead of it. That prediction is looking quite possible here in Manassas.

Oh, the weather outside ain't pretty,
So we'll have to eat the kitty,
But as long as he's low in fat,
Eat the cat, eat the cat, eat the cat

(to the tune of Let It Snow)
