Winter storm (what?!) headed our way


This from The Weather Channel:

…WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM MDT MONDAY…

A RAIN AND SNOW MIXTURE WILL TURN TO ALL SNOW BY MIDNIGHT. THE SNOW WILL BE HEAVY AT TIMES ESPECIALLY NEAR THE FOOTHILLS FROM BOULDER SOUTHWARD AND ACROSS PALMER DIVIDE AREA THROUGH MONDAY. TOTAL ACCUMULATIONS OF 6 TO 18 INCHES CAN BE EXPECTED ACROSS THE FRONT RANGE I-25 CORRIDOR…WITH THE HEAVIEST SNOW OVER THE SOUTHERN SECTIONS OF THE DENVER METRO AREA. UP TO 2 FEET OF SNOW IS POSSIBLE OVER DOUGLAS AND WESTERN ELBERT COUNTIES.

THIS AMOUNT OF SNOW WILL PRODUCE CONSIDERABLE AND POTENTIALLY DEVASTATING TREE DAMAGE. WIDESPREAD AND PROLONGED POWER OUTAGES CAN BE EXPECTED.

REMEMBER…A WINTER STORM WARNING MEANS HAZARDOUS WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE IMMINENT OR HIGHLY LIKELY. SIGNIFICANT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ARE OCCURRING OR EXPECTED. THIS WILL MAKE TRAVEL VERY HAZARDOUS OR IMPOSSIBLE.

Well, I’m off to bed. It doesn’t sound like we should get hit too hard by this so I hope we won’t lose electricity in the middle of the night or Monday or it’s gonna get downright cold in here!

I’m so not ready for snow yet! It’s barely fall for pete’s sake. :o(

Update 10/10/05: Guess it was a false alarm. It didn’t get cold enough for snow where I live (whew!), but we sure are getting a lot of rain.

What Amy needs and more

I woke up at 4:30 this morning and couldn’t go back to sleep. So after an hour of laying in bed, I decided to get up and online. I did some photography research and a little catching up on blogs and, before I went back to bed and crashed for a couple more hours, found this fun idea on Kristi’s blog.

Go to Google. Type in “(your first name) needs” Use the quotes (come on, you knew that, right?) for it to work. Pick five (or more) random “needs” you have and list them.

It’s pretty amusing what results you get. :oD Give it a try and post yours on your own blog.

Here are my top seven picks (because I couldn’t stop at just five):

1. Amy needs a drug-dealer’s testimony to free a teenager wrongfully accused of murder.

2. Amy needs to either wake up or start getting some extra will-power.

3. I don’t believe that Amy needs sex.

4. A little shy and laid-back, Amy needs to find a home where she can spend her golden years and be a cherished member of the family.

5. Amy needs to contact her phone service and have her number listed so her adoring public may contact her directly and quit bothering me.

6. Amy needs some therapy, if you ask me.

7. Amy needs income.

Also wanted to give a shout out to everyone who donated money to the Fourth Annual Boobie-thon. The total amount raised this year was $9240.40 — $7885.00 for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation — and $1355.40 for the American Red Cross. That’s awesome!! :) Thank you!! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, click here.

And lastly, going hand-in-hand with #7 above – “Amy needs income” – I want to announce some new Halloween designs I did for my online shop. (Pretty sly, eh?) ;)
The onesies for babies and t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies and jerseys for kids say: “Mama’s lil pumpkin” “Daddy’s lil pumpkin” “Grandma’s lil pumpkin” and “Grandpa’s lil pumpkin.” So if you are looking for a cute gift idea for a little one this Halloween, check them out. :) Thanks!
Here’s an example:
