I live in the DEEP South. Deep. I am originally from Boston. You know, where it snows.
But, having lived in the South for nearly 20 years, and all of my adult life, I am totally unwelcoming of any frozen precipitation.
I don’t want to shovel… or drive in snow… or ice… or sleet. I love living where I don’t have to own an ice scraper, or mittens! LOL!!
The kids, on the other hand, are praying like mad for a foot of accumulation. 🙂
So tomorrow it’s forecasted that we’ll have ice, snow, and winter weather. The schools have shut down. Colleges – closed. A state of emergency has been declared. Apparently in our town one convenience store was charging $6/gallon for milk and the grocery stores were CRAZY.
We stayed home. I baked some bread. I had the kids brainstorm how we’d stay warm and cook if we lose power for a couple of days. They haven’t clued in yet on the gas fireplace, but I expect they will. Little was all about a fire in the driveway. Um, no. But keep thinking!! LOL!!
So now I’m watching Law and Order. With an electric blanket. And a cup of iced tea. Late night tv – because I’m expecting I’ll be sleeping in tomorrow. 🙂
