Cent Saving Saturday

This week’s normally scheduled Cent Saving Saturday post has been interrupted to bring you up to the minute coverage on the weather emergency taking shape in the D.C. Metro area.

Currently, area residents are socked in.

The storm is slated to dump upwards of 2 feet of snow in some areas of the region (naturally that would be the area I live in).

That’s right, readers, Casa de Dummies is having a…

SNOWTASTROPHE (SNOWPACALYPSE? SNOWMAGEDEON?)

Whatever you wanna call it, I can assure you this whole situation is completely SNOWDICULOUS.

People are freakin’ the freak out.

This was the line at Costco yesterday…

Only thing more horrifying was the line at Wal-Mart the day before (which I don’t have a photo of because the conditions were too dangerous to risk pausing to take a photo of; just know that #3 was crying, partially naked, and down a shoe when we left.).

It’s scary.

Because people are scared.

And, when people get scared, they get crazy.

And, we all know what crazy people are…scary.

It’s so SNOWRAGEOUS that I’m talking in circles over here!

At the moment all is well.

All Dumb Family members are present and accounted for.

But, you don’t hear from me again soon, send in the dogs.

The ones with the sleds (and the heaters, and the hot cocoa, and the plush blankets).

In the mean time, enjoy some photos of the snow.

Not Snow-bad, right?

Only the beginning, people (you’ll have to wait until tomorrow for an update and let me tell you, at press time things were not looking pretty).

Before I sign off to go build an igloo let me just tell ya one little something about saving cents…

No way you can do it during a SNOWLAMITY because once you’ve watched everything you have Tivoed and all of the half way decent crap on PPV, cleaned out your closet, reorganized your pantry, and written a week’s worth of blog posts, the only thing left to do is Internet shop.

I swear to you, if the power goes out I am going to lose my effing mind all Jack-Nicholson-Shining style.

More tomorrow (if I’m able).

Dumb Mom. Out.

Happy Saturday Sharefest! I won't make you mad by telling you where I live. (no snow clumps on these palm trees...). Thanks for braving the conditions to bring us this breaking report. Sounds incredibly daring of you!

I hope you don't lose your electricity! I'd lose my mind without it.

All stocked up on bread and milk? Why everyone thinks they need 6 gallons of milk every time it snows, I don't know.

Kmama said...

LOL! I have a friend in the MD/DC area and she said they are forecasting 30 inches! What in the world?!?! That's just insane.

Even more insane? I'm so jealous. We've not had a good snowstorm all year.

OH I hope you don't lose power... but I would love to have some of that snow...

Mimi said...

Mimi checking in from WV where we have 30+ inches of snow out here on the compound.
We have no satellite, no TV and Papa is starting to look a little like Jack Nicholson out here... when I hear your brother in his room moaning redrum, redrum I'll know its time to run.

That is hell for me. It's bad enough to be cold enough for snow, but then add more snow, more snow and trapped with nothing to do with four boys. Oh, Lord. It's a good thing those tubs are burned because you might have a fifth boy on the way after this.

I just woke up from a 2-hour nap, 'cause I was exhausted from shoveling all morning! I swear, I've never seen so much snow in my life. And it was still coming down until a little bit ago. We haven't lost power yet, fingers crossed!

Shelle said...

Hope you've still got your power! We didn't get quite as much snow up here in Pa but still enough to make people go out to the grocery store to buy 5 gallons of milk and 10 loaves of bread!

Hope you are having a good weekend! Happy SITS Saturday!

Acting Balanced Mom said...

I was in Charlotte NC last weekend to witness their snowtastropy... its amazing what a little white stuff will do to the psyche! No snow here in Charleston ... I miss having snow (at least until I have to go home to Toronto to shovel it..) Stopping by from SITS

Snow made a show for two times, and we are very surprised upon having a unseasonal months just hot and super nice. Enjoy the beauty of magic white days until Spring arrives soon.
