We’re gettin’ all doomsday up in here.

It’s as if the end of the world is going to happen at 2:46PM tomorrow. Yes, at 2:46PM in Northwest Arkansas we might get some ice or snow and guys, let me tell you, it’s the end of the world. I think the local population, in general, is just freaked out after last year’s doomsday. We were without power for many, many days. Roads were blocked for just as many days (as you can see from the picture above – you couldn’t drive down neighborhood streets). It was cold, trees were falling, branches were falling and it looked/felt/sounded like a war zone outside. Yes, that could cause some general freaking out. We’ll call it post traumatic stress disorder because that makes it sound more legit.

PTSD makes it okay to go to Wal-Mart with 1,000s of other people and stock up on months worth of peanut butter, bread, and chili ingredients. PTSD makes it okay to spend tons of money on generators and chain saws (wouldn’t it be better to just be blocked in by fallen trees and not be able to get to work for a few?) just in case you need them. PTSD makes it okay for me to restock my liquor cabinet… you know… just in case my highball glass looks lonely in the event of bad weather.

I’m not sold on the impending weather of doom. Weather is fickle. Weather likes to trick those of us in this area. It likes to get us all excited about snow, freaked out about tornadoes, and looking forward to warmer days and instead it does the complete opposite of all of those things (which, in the case of the tornado is a good thing). If ice starts falling from the sky tomorrow, then I’ll believe it. Until then, we shall see.

    Oh yeah here in E TN, if there are FIVE fluffy, floating flakes of snow, people buy up all the bread, milk, & eggs. Like there will be a chance that WAayyy up in the mountain at the end of a dirt road there will be ONE of them that would have to walk to town like it's 1913 to get some staple that they don't already grow on the farm. Wish I was at your house, I"d help you with all the liquor overstock, if it ices over, & we could be the Arkansas Drunken Knitter group. LOL

    Hah – that would be a site. Maybe, when we need a break from knitting, we could cause a commotion on the front porch. Fun times 🙂

  3. I did go buy lots of groceries yesterday, but my hubby practically snorted when I suggested we should gas up the cars and get some cash. This is the same man who loaned out the chainsaw it took me a FULL DAY to find last year at this time… and hasn't gotten it back. Brilliant.

  4. Oh sweetie, I hope you don't get another ice storm! Those are the worst. Beautiful but ugly at the same time… At any rate, I'll clink glasses with you and eat chilli for days… sounds fun! 🙂
