practice preparing for a storm

Apparently today was a practice drill for the impending storm coming tomorrow, and most schools were delayed for a couple hours. It didn't look all that bad when it started to get light outside until I noticed that a garbage truck had slid off into the ditch on the corner road. The driver said that he thought that he was safely backing up within the markers used by the snowplow drivers, but obviously that wasn't to be the case.
Without the wind causing blowing and drifting it will be a good time to assess what is needed from the outside world, go after it and then settle peacefully by the fireside.
