Yep, today we have the calm before the "STORM". It's been predicted for days and you could almost hear the drum roll. Many are being touched by this one. It was suppose to hit around 5...then it changed to 8....then it changed to after midnight. 6-12 inches of snow is predicted. We have had a little bit but I'm going to assume more will come before dawn. We're ready here at the Pines. Wood has been delivered the last 2 days. It was actually ordered back months ago but sure came at the right time! Our son Phil helped load and split and get it ready. However, his little sweeties, Lexi and Addy....or Sprite and Squirt as I call them...wanted to help. So a lesson in splitting was in order.
