If any snow that might accumulate tonight washes away by tomorrow afternoon, I hope to go shopping while everybody is watching football and the stores are not busy. That's my favorite thing about this holiday. It's worth going out in the rain just to have the stores to myself.
Now I have to go make my traditional holiday macaroni and cheese for dinner while I still have electricity for the oven. I might go outside and listen to the noise at midnight. The cold will probably drive me back in after thirty seconds or so. Happy New Year.
