Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow (Again. Some More. Still.)

The weather forecast for the Greater Roxiticus Valley is calling for more snow this weekend. And we still haven't gotten over the last batch of ice. As Rex and I were driving over the mountain to the Bernardsville train station this morning, the sun was shining on the ice in the trees and I felt like we were inside a snow globe or life-size ice sculpture.

Every time I looked at my iPhone today, I received another note about a potential event cancellation this weekend due to bad weather. I checked and found that we're expecting 5 to 8 inches by Saturday night. So when we returned home from NYC this evening, we headed over to Kings to lay in some provisions... we'll make Shake 'n' Bake chicken on Saturday, whether or not our 4-H Prep New Year's Party is postponed, and Rex has a recipe in mind for a huge shoulder of pork.

London and Maddie are hoping to start basketball with the Mendham Patriots tomorrow morning, but I'm sure they'd be just as happy to sled down the hill in our yard and try to build a snowman if we get the right kind of snow. Roxy the Weekend Warrior needs to get to work on my Fitness Not Fatness New Year's Resolution, and Rex and I have plenty of work to catch up on over the weekend, so I won't really mind if we're snowed in together.

What are your plans for the weekend if it snows, if it snows, if it snows?
