Then the anticipation of snow?
For those of us in the south, a good snow (4 inches or so) is pretty rare. If we are lucky, we might get one good snow a year. Since it is not an "all winter thing," we look forward to it. We had snow here on Christmas Day, but it was only a couple of inches.
We took full advantage of it, though. Cozy pajamas and warm blankets. A friend of mine gave me a pair of footed pajamas a few years ago. Two things you should know.
1~They are both warm and comfy. 2~I don't look cute in mine at ALL! :)
Yes, most people that live north of us giggle at how we completely shut down with only a few inches of snow, but we just aren't prepared for it here. And typically, we get ice and freezing rain on top of the snow. We certainly aren't accustomed to driving on ice. However, it is pretty comical to watch the meteorologists predict these "snow storms." Especially when they are talking while dramatic music plays in the background. Ha!
There is an "old wives tale" that says if we keep snow on the ground for three days, it will snow again...soon. When it snowed on Christmas Day, it stuck around (in patches) for 5 days. So here we are. They are predicting that we will get somewhere between 4 and 6 inches. Some models show up to 8. This is big news, people. Big.
Now, try not to laugh. I would bet you 1 million dollars (that I don't have) that the grocery stores will be PACKED today and tomorrow. There will be NO milk. NO bread.
We may not be able to get our hands on milk, but I can PROMISE you that there will be plenty of coffee and creamer here at my house.
There will be roasted marshmallows, too. Lots of them. If the wind calms down, we will roast them outside. If not, we will cheat and roast them in the fireplace. It's true.
I can't wait to see what this "snow storm" brings to the south. Whether it brings one inch or 6 inches, I know we will have tons of snuggle time and games. Hopefully we will get to make some snow ice cream! Sending you Winter Wishes!
