Storms never last

The media today is wonderful about letting us know about approaching storms and bad weather. They can tell us when a storm will arrive, how much rain or snow we are going to get, temperatures, wind speeds and wind chill factors. These meteorologists are so much better today than my old granny, who based her weather predictions on the phases of the moon.

The first thing we think of, though, when we get the news of forthcoming bad weather is food, supplies and going to the store.

I think of warm comforting foods such as soups, hot chocolate, hot tea with honey, homemade bread and crock-pot stews. This last storm was no different. We knew a nasty weather system was going to hit us by late Saturday night and into Sunday and Monday.
