Snow in Dixie....Again

Who knew that the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011 would find the south enveloped in snow!!  North Alabama experienced the first white Christmas in quite a few years and we figured that would be the end of it.  However, once again, we are gearing up for snow here in the south, which means frantic visits to the local grocer for bread and milk.  I don't understand the bread and milk thing.  Water is free.  And I would rather have something tastier than a PB&J, even if I have to roast wieners over the fire pit outside.  A tasty hot dog beats a plain PB&J any day of the week!  Our trip to the store includes the fixings for chili cheese dogs!  And lots of Coke and Mt. Dew.  Gotta have that sugar high to play out in the snow!  And don't forget the ingredients for snow ice cream!  YUM!!

The Sunday and Monday prediction is for 6-10 inches of the white powder.  While it may only snow 1-2 inches, in south-speak that is 1-2 feet of the white stuff covering the ground, as well as alot of dirt covered snowmen!!  We'll see what happens tomorrow!

I'm just sayin',

I like that picture. I've got a blonde daughter and that would keep her busy for a long time!

Usually when they are forecasting this far out it's not as bad as they think it's going to be - hope that's the case this time! I like the snow but hate the ice/no power/roads closed/etc. Pretty picture!
