People rushing about to get the last of food off the store shelves

Everyone stocks up on shovels, candles, dry ice and the like

Don’t leave your car on empty

Who knows what you my run out of

But who are we kidding

Once the snow comes

No one will be going anywhere

Everyone sits by the window watching the snow fall

Dreading the moments we’ll have to clear it away

Wondering when will it ever end

The kids are all happy for they know they’ll be no school

They can build some snowman, make snow angels and sled down multiple hills

Rows of hot cocoa will line every counter

Huge plows will clear the roads

While their drivers are wishing they were home

But coffee keeps them going until they’ve made us all safe

The storm awaits for an opportunity to do it all again

So take cover and wait until it’s safe to venture out

You wouldn’t want to have to wait until they can thaw you out
