The Bible says, “Ask and ye shall receive”
We asked and we received….finally.
IT SNOWED ON SATURDAY!!!
Sorry. *regaining composure*
The last time we had an accumulation of snow, it was 1997, and our family looked like this:
The hubby and I had four-legged, furry “children” and I was wearing “mom” jeans.
Indulge me here, please.
This was my kids first “big” snow. Yes, I used the word BIG for 3” of snow.
No snickering from you folks in the North.
The most excitement we get from weather in these parts is Spring tornadoes and Summer hurricanes. We are encouraged by our local meteorologists to have a “weather plan” that involves a “safe place”.
But every winter, we are occasionally teased with the “S” word. Which usually involves a trip to the grocery store for bread and milk. Seriously. I guess everyone dines on bread sandwiches with a side of milk. I have never understood it, but it’s the truth.
Snow reports always get the kids get excited and then NOTHING happens. Then you have to explain that meteorologists are human and make weather mistakes, and snow in the South is very rare.
However, today I present you with the GRITS family
blizzard snow pictures from 2009:
And, for your viewing pleasure, I videotaped the making of their very first snow angels:
(FYI- this video was taken in our first trip out at 7AM….the angels were actually covered up by the time we went back out at 11AM)
Thanks for indulging me….
We now return to our regularly scheduled weather. Highs in the 70’s by the end of the week.
