Word on the street (read: every radio station and weather channel) says we're getting a Nor'easter this weekend, starting today.
For those of you who don't live in the North East (Nor'east), there are two different types of Nor'easters:
1. below 32 degrees: this Nor'easter brings wind that burns your face, feet of snow, five foot snow drifts, back-breaking shoveling, and a day off from work.
2. above 32 degrees: this Nor'easter (the kind we'll be experiencing) brings howling winds, sideways rain, leaf tornadoes, clogged gutters and flooded basements.
I'll be breaking out my bright orange wellies tonight – and keeping my fingers crossed that my basement makes it through the next 4 days dry!
