Blizzard Anticipation

We are sitting back here waiting for a blizzard.
~
Since I'm an old Bastard, I have many memories of substantial blizzards over the past 50 years, including the Blizzard of 78.  The Perfect Storm in October 1991 wasn't a Blizzard because of the lack of snow, but the flooding and property destruction that it brought makes that really memorable.
~
The coming Blizzard means a lot of extra work for us at Nanepashemet Telecom.   Just to enter a cell compound will require substantial shoveling, and there is extra peril for our climbers going up the towers.   And there is no way that we are compensated for winter conditions in this highly competitive business environment.
~
I'm betting that this storm will produce some memories too.  The predicted accumulation keeps going up and they are now saying 20 inches of snow here in Marblehead.  Plus it's not supposed to start until this afternoon, but there is a steady snowfall going on already at 7:30 in the morning.
~
So it's time to get my ass in gear, head up to the Sundance Building to prepare the hardwood for finish, and pull out the shovels.  Then it's the Patriots v the Bills at 1:00PM.
