Babe and I are getting ready to batten down the hatches for the storm that is abrewin'. We are snuggled into my birthday down coat - it is SOOO warm. We could weather a storm of The Day After Tomorrow proportions without a tingling appendage. Read the winter storm warning below!

I am going to cook some potato soup, I stocked up on Chai tea and have flashlights ready. We have enough camping gear to last us as well. So, I will check in on Monday!! Have a good weekend and stay warm if you are in the Northwest. I will think warm thoughts and some jealous ones of my Aunt the snowbird right now!
