New Englanders are hardy people.
We are used to harsh winters so news of a mega storm coming is just kind of taken into stride.
That's right. No one was going to go hungry if stranded inside houses and cars were ready for take-off, if needed, with full tanks of gas.
The funny part of the mega storm coming to the part of Massachusetts where we live is that it didn't!
We hardly had anything!
Schools were closed, there were warnings not to drive and admittedly, there was some fear of what the storm was going to be like.
However, only about five inches of snow fell and that is really no big deal
There were no blustery tree-spitting winds and, while it was certainly on the chilly side, it was bearable.
Of course, we felt sorry for the people and city workers in areas that did get whammed but also thankful it wasn't bad here.
Actually, I had a wonderful "at home" day. Freshly made veggie soup was in the crock pot and date nut muffins, fresh from the oven, smelled great.
The mega-turned-mini storm, in these parts, resulted in a super day from start to finish.
It was actually a nice treat in the middle of winter.
