Good evening everyone! For the few followers I have who are from more Northern areas of the US, you should probably get ready for a good laugh at this Southerners expense!
It is almost 8:00 here, and we are waiting on some snow. We hardly got any snow last winter, so the forecast of a trace amount to 2 inches of snow is very exciting for us. See, in North Carolina, a trace amount of snow means the end of the world as we know it. We don’t have the tools and manpower dedicated to cleaning off the roads like more northern states do, and a lot of people don’t own cars or trucks that could safely go anywhere. Schools and businesses close. Already most schools around here are delayed in the morning, and at this point it’s only raining! People storm the grocery stores to get milk and bread, which never made too much sense to be because if the power goes out what are you going to do with milk and bread? Speaking of power, our is flickering already.
So with that explanation of North Carolina winters, I will tell you that we have had a very exciting, anticipation-filled day in my house. I went out and bought some snow boots for the kids this morning (I had to go to 4 stores-can you believe that?!). Maddie has been wearing hers around all night:Charlie and I had some fun making snow scenes with cotton balls:
So, now we’re just waiting around for it to start snowing! Hopefully I will have some snow pics to share with you tomorrow.
