Batten Down the Hatches!
This afternoon we are off to get a tag for one of the cars and then to the grocery store to stock up a little just in case...
Bundle up and stay warm!
I love researching where phrases come from~ this was interesting: Prepare for trouble--batten down the hatches. This term originated in the navy, where it signified preparing for a storm by fastening down canvas over doorways and hatches (openings) with strips of wood called battens. [Late 1800s]
