Good news for everyone on the east coast who is dreading their holiday family reunions, the best of all excuses is coming your way! And for everyone who is really looking forward to traveling to see the family the suspiciously moved so far away from, who are you? What is your family like? Can I have Thanksgiving with you guys?

The National Weather Service has declared that the east coast is getting its first major snowstorm of the year (Buffalo's lake-snow debacle doesn't count, I guess), and it is coming just in time to ruin everything. They are calling this nor'easter Winter Storm Cato, and he is my new best friend.
