I am so excited! I've been crossing my fingers for a good snow storm forever!! Of course, the weathermen are covering their rears by saying it could just give Connecticut a glancing blow or it could really hammer us with over a foot of snow from early Saturday evening to early Sunday evening. Either way, Sunday is my day to bake and I'm definitely going to stock up tonight.

Seriously....this is one of the reasons I love living in New England.....the snow and the history.

Snowy blessings to us all!!
