The one we've been waiting for (trumpets, please)

It's gonna snow, ho, ho
Right here in Dixie
All will be white overnight
It will be cold
On [Thursday], hey, hey
Right here in Dixie
We'll do-si-do in the snow
So I've been told.
--the Mayor, Year Without a Santa Claus, by Jules Bass

EGGS!!
MILK!!
TOILET PAPER!!
ABANDON YOUR CARS! ABANDON YOUR CARS!
--"Stopping by the SuperFresh on a Snowy Evening," Author Unknown

(The second song is attributed to some guy who worked at my husband's company but left before Chris started. It was passed down by his coworkers in the oral tradition, like all classic works of the great bards.)

My boots were made for trudgin'. Let it snow, Father Sky, let it snow.
