These days nothing sends the Northeast into a panic faster than a see of white looming on the weatherman's Dopler radar. This one promises to be a doozy, the hype was big enough to force a rare NYC snow day along with most of Long Island's schools closing before a single flake of snow had fallen.
Along with most of Nassau County, the Countess spent the day in her car. The list of stops was as follows;
Cross Island Fruit
Green Acres Mall
Matty's Toy Shop
Tom's Shoe Repair
Dentist with Count Jr.
Friends house to pick up the Contessa
The Countess is not a car person. Perhaps it was her many years happily using mass transit and her feet to get around her beloved NYC, but the driving thing has never really set her heart racing. But the payoff is a stocked house and everyone fully outfitted for a weekend of skiing.
How did you prepare for the big storm (if at all), and how will you handle the dreaded snow day?
