I always dread seeing that line on the map going right through Nova Scotia. This storm shouldn't impact us that much. It is already down-grading to an extra-tropical storm. Last night we went around the entire house, bringing every item that could potentially blow away into the garage; lawn chairs, patio furniture, children's toys....and I went to the grocery store to stock up on batteries and food. We always go through the same exercise whenever there is a storm on the way; no matter how big or small. We live right on the coast and quite a drive from most amenities, so want to be prepared for whatever might come our way.
In the process of bringing things into the garage and putting away groceries, we discovered that our freezer in the garage had died, rendering all the food inside it spoiled. Ugh; what a mess...it was an older freezer, and now, on top of a bunch of spoiled food, we need to buy a new freezer.
So now, here I am, with the two boys, home today, watching another storm out the window, and trying to do a million things at once. We don't know what we are doing this weekend, since the weather will be yucky for pretty much the entire time.
