14 years in Metamuville taught me this much: if there's a rumor of inclement weather, use all the utilities you can while you can. Cook. Do laundry. Do the dishes. Bathe. Download movies off Amazon Prime.
It's all going to go away soon. And for a long time.
I have no reason to think that's the case here, but the Post-Metamuville Stress Disorder is real.
