Don’t be fooled by the Spring header -it doesn’t look like that here
and it won’t for awhile because we have another storm on the way.
The whole Island is on hold, waiting for it. It’s been predicted that it’ll be another White Juan, a massive spring snowstorm (a little irony in that phrase don’t you think?) – we even made the UK news –
(They obviously are from the UK or they wouldn’t be calling it “freak”. It sounds like a big one but definitely not freak. Now a hurricane in March – that would definitely be freakish – but not a snowstorm. That’s so normal here that we actually look for our St Patrick’s snowstorm every year.
Still, everyone around here is
complaining talking about it (and heading to the grocery store for stormchips)
Here, at A Sparrow’s Home, we have lots of food and wood, as well as buckets of water, flashlights powered and a crank radio just in case the power goes off – and chips and chocolate because everyone knows a snowstorm is always a good reason to party.
My big decision is this – will I bake? Or does it look like we’ll really lose power? We don’t usually lose power in snowstorms. Baking during a storm is so common here on the Island that it’s become a hashtag #stormbaking – just like #stormchips.
I think I’ll risk it . . .
Now let me see, I’ll start off with bread,
Oh what the heck, I’ll make all three!
Happy Windsday! (excuse the little photoshop license with Pooh and Piglet – they weren’t dressed for our kind of Windsdays)
