I bet that many of you reading this post are expecting or have just experienced some snowage! Well. I am ready for snow and ice with my trusty $19.00 rubber boots from Walmart!
The 5 o'clock News last night was dominated by the weather reports of snow a comin our way in the South, resulting in a bread buying frenzy at the stores. Walmart's bread aisle was empty except for some stray whole wheat loaves.
When I lived in Florida, we would have several almost hurricanes come through our area and I never quite felt ready for a disaster. Everyone would rush to the stores buying bottled water, toilet paper, bread, milk and all the canned foods you usually couldn't stand. I would buy some peanut butter as my valiant effort at staying alive without power or running water. Luckily we were never hit that hard, but one year when we lost power, my son in law cooked the most delicious Indian food out on our grill. Needless to say, we had it pretty good! Last night I did buy some frozen foods and peppermint hot cocoa and milk of course and bread, but I just can't see the whole town falling apart from a little snow. I hope I am right about that!
Last night the predictions were for 5-8 inches accumulation starting Sunday night. Not exactly a blizzard folks. Now this morning the reports are for 1-4 inches. We better get something, because I was in Florida when Gadsden had it's first White Christmas in recorded history, and I bought those cool rubber boots last night so I could frolic in the stuff!
Hope your weekend is cozy and warm! Stay safe!
