Impending - don't you love that word. All the schools here let out early today "due to the impending storm" which actually started around 4:00. I'm from Syracuse, where there is always an impending storm from October right through to April or sometimes even May. Since it doesn't snow that often in Virginia, most people are pretty excited. Not me, I had 38 years of snow. I'm staying in with my fuzzy socks, a nice hot cup of coffee, some delicious biscotti and the heat cranked up.
