There's a Nor'easter heading your way. All the weather-folk are slinging their best-guess forecasts. Its all anyone can talk about. Teachers and students alike are praying for a snow-day on Facebook. The cashier at the grocery store hands you your receipt with a friendly reminder to brace yourself for whats to come.

So what do you do when the predictions are for inches upon inches of the fluffy white stuff, with wind gusts and plummeting temperatures?

Do you descend upon the nearest store in search of bread and milk? Do you prep your snow-blower and set out your shovels? Do you simply tuck-in on your recliner, with a blanket and a good book, and plan to ride it out?

I think, for the most part, those of us who have grown up here, take each warning with equal parts grain of salt and common sense. I have found that middle ground of having a few things on hand "just in case", and having a smart plan of attack on how you're gonna dig out-but not over doing it or under preparing is probably the best bet.

But I am always curious to know what other do. What's the best way to ride out a storm like the one we're supposed to get this week? Do you stay home and bake through the storm? Do you stay home and get baked through the storm? Are you and early to plow kind of person or do you wait till its all done?

Inquiring minds (or simply one-mine) wants to know!
