Winter Storm

The winter storm didn’t miss us this time. It’s cold, down to your bones, cold.

My roommate just called, and he estimated it will be another 3 or more hours on the freeway home. This is just the frozen rain, and sleet. We haven’t even had the major storm yet, with all the snow later tonight.

    Shelley,

    Your storm front does indeed look nasty. Time to hunker down!

    The Oxford English Dictionary – how to hunker:
    squat, with the haunches, knees, and ankles acutely bent, so as to bring the hams near the heels, and throw the whole weight upon the fore part of the feet. The advantage of this position is that you’re not only crouched close to the ground, so presenting a small target for whatever the universe chooses to throw at you, but you’re also ready to move at a moment’s notice.

    Hunker down has also taken on the sense of to hide, hide out, or take shelter, whatever position you choose to do it in.

    Be safe, stay warm … um, squat and eat cake! ( *-* )

    Yesterday it was 65 degrees, this morning it was 15. I can handle 15 degrees, I just can’t deal with a 50 degree drop in one day.
