Here in Central New York, we’re waiting for a storm to do nothing. Hell, even the National Weather Service, they of the apocalyptic storm warnings for Long Island and the mid-Atlantic, has calmed down about the threat to Central New York:
Rain, mainly after 8pm. Low around 50. Windy, with a north wind 26 to 30 mph, with gusts as high as 41 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New precipitation amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
The perfect world scenario for tomorrow is that my office has no power but The Kid’s daycare does. The likely scenario is that my office has power and The Kid’s daycare does too. The worst case scenario is that my office has power and The Kid’s daycare doesn’t. I don’t know what happens then. My guess is that we’ll just set Sesame Street to run on our DVR as one long playlist. Or she’ll go to my in-laws.
This week’s shopping list is a day late, thanks to a nice little hangover from Saturday night, storm preparation (Side note: I have friends who stocked up on ammo. Seriously? We bought extra diapers, but don’t worry, I’ve got friends protecting their homes in suburbia with extra shotgun shells.) and overall laziness. This list will bring the following bounty for the week:
- Sauteed beef with white wine and rosemary
- Chicken and white bean soup
- Turkey club sandwiches
