It snowed here in the South today, mind you it only stuck to the grass and trees and was probably less than an inch, but it snowed.
I know to many of you that do not live in the south, it’s not a big thing, even my hubby laughs at us scrambling around the grocery stores at even the smallest hint of an inch or so of the white stuff. It is rather humorous, but it’s rare for us to get snow here. When hubby and I were dating, he thought I was exaggerating when I told him that even an inch of snow on the ground would create mass panic at the grocery stores….everyone grabbing their share of bread and milk….schools start closing before the snow hits the ground. He would tell me tales of how he would have to dig out his car and shovel the driveway. Down here there is no digging out because everything pretty much closes. Although today, the roads stayed snow free and it is a weekend so nothing had to close and businesses could carry on as usual.
Yes, our excitement of a small amount of the white stuff does seem strange to some, but there is nothing like that feeling of excitement and hearing the laughter of children that are experiencing snow for the first time. This will probably be the last we get to see of the fluffy winter weather, after all we experienced a trace of flurries last week, this week we had temps in the mid 70s,and then flooding so badly I thought I saw an ark float by, and now snow. I think next week is supposed to feel like spring. Mother nature has to be exhausted by now.
But until then, I’m going to huddle under a comfy blanket and enjoy the remainder of this snowy day.
