That's what my friend, the genius (or WeatherWizard, as Johnny called him) behind WillisWeather, calls the anticipation & uncertainty of waiting for a big winter storm. It's looking pretty good for us right now. He says I'll either be happy or deliriously happy. And someone I work with, in response to my casually asking if she was looking forward to the snow, said, "I am so ready for snow—can't wait to shovel my front stoop and if i'm lucky cross country in the park. I think we are the only 2 NYer's over 6 years old who feel this way." And now I feel that we are friends. Loving snow is like a secret handshake, & you're in the club. It's starting in a couple of hours. I bought root vegetables for soup. It's gonna be great!
