Time to Make a Christmas Backup Plan In Case You’re Stuck at Home
What is your Christmas backup plan? I keep seeing tweets like this show up in my feed:
I don't know about you, but my Christmas season never has a plan B. I've been doing the same things to celebrate Christmas my entire life. Christmas eve is at my grandparent's house on my mom's side of the family, and Christmas day is spent with my dad's side. And this year the whole family will be together for Christmas Day which is something that hasn't happened in about a decade.
Mother Nature might be throwing a wrench into those plans though. If you were planning to do your holiday travel Wednesday through Friday this week, you might want to rethink that.
- Winter Storm Watch in effect from December 21, 06:00 AM CST until December 24, 06:00 AM CST
- Wind Chill Watch in effect from December 22, 06:00 PM CST until December 24, 12:00 PM CST
And these are just the initial watches. We all know how fast a "watch" can change to a "warning" in this state.
Last night my husband came home from our friend's house with an idea. Since they were going to travel and so were we, if we all end up not going anywhere we will travel the 3 miles down the road to spend Christmas together and have a Friends-mas. It won't be the celebrations we are all used to, but at least there is a backup plan in place.
