Bossy is going to tell you something you never heard, especially those of you who watch the news or the Weather Channel or talk with friends or subscribe to Facebook or Twitter or have internet: Last weekend an East Coast blizzard dumped close to two feet of snow in a blanket that wiped out power from D.C. through Bossy’s neck of the woods, which is neither a neck nor woods.
Bossy paid enough attention to the forecast to know a storm was coming, but she tends not to take threatening weather reports too seriously — not since the time a local broadcaster stood outside the television studio in what could only be described as a flurry and said, “The city of Philadelphia is staring down the barrel of a shotgun.”
Nevertheless, the storm did arrive as advertised, and here’s what Bossy did to prepare:
she went to the food store she cooked a roast she bought lots of wine she stacked a cord of firewood she had Saphenous Vein Ablation on her left leg.
Another snowstorm is supposed to be on its way later this afternoon, and so Bossy has another chance to get it right. Bossy has been thinking about the things and people she would most like to be snowed-in with, and she can sum up her list in this way:
Which is what today’s Ten-Word Challenge is all about. In exactly ten words, can you tell Bossy and her council about the people and things you would like surrounding you if snowed-in?
And be sure to check back later today for the best snowed-in ideas on all the web.
