Survival 101

So Jonas is coming. Jonas being a storm that is being called words like “paralyzing” and “historic”. Despite the fact that it hasn’t actually happened yet. Yes, we live in a city that is notoriously wimpy and panicky about snow. But the predictions are fairly consistent that this could be a big one. I’m kind of looking forward to it. We haven’t had any real snow yet this year, or even much wintery weather. The first snow is always kind of fun. And this one which is predicted to start Friday afternoon and go through Sunday could mean a nice weekend at home for all five of us. No pressure to try and make it into work. The list of things that might get canceled is long: ballet, basketball practices x 3, a swim meet, church, basketball games x 3, swim practice. It was shaping up to be a busy weekend but the snow might bring some long lazy days in front of the fire. A girl can dream, right?

As we are apt to do here in the land of snow frenzy, we went grocery shopping last night and stocked up. We have milk, bread and toilet paper. We have dog food and bottled water. We have marshmallows for the hot chocolate and flashlights and candles.

Most importantly, we have books. The library being a much more essential pre-storm trip than the grocery store.

Random picture books for everyone.

David’s stack of graphic novels. Did I mention that he is really into this genre right now?

A little Pinkalicious makes any snow day better.

Some chapter books for David and John. I pulled Hamster Princess off the new shelf for Ruth. It looked too old for her but looked really funny so I got it anyway for David to try.

And a few for me. I had told myself I shouldn’t check anything else out since I have an overly full TBR pile already. But I just couldn’t help myself.

Ok, Jonas. Bring it on. We’re ready.
