Snow Forecast Again!

Posted by Scarlet Pumpernickel | 4:56 PM | , , | 15 comments »

Enough already! I am praying for snow, but not ice. I can deal with snow. We get to be out of school, the kids love to play in the snow.

Ice storms are horrible. They bring down all the power lines and the power is out for days. So, please snow, not ice this time.

The news forecast says it will hit Sunday night. We're prepared. Bought bread, milk and coffee. Went to the store last night, there were three loaves of bread left on the shelf. You know of course, that when we have snow in Georgia everyone has to have milk and bread, right? Well, we do.

Then there is the morning when the sun comes up and the roadways are white and no one can go to work. Then you see all the Bubbas out driving their four-wheel drives and doing donuts in the snow. Can't make it to work, but they can drive all over the county looking for thrill hills in their trucks.

So, drag a chair close to the fireplace, make some hot chocolate and read a book, it's going to snow and we're going to be out of school.

    What an adorable snow angel! Yep, I suspect we're gonna get some white stuff!

    They're calling for an ice storm in SC. It's supposed to hit some time on Monday.

    Funny how everyone buys milk and bread. People stock up as if we're going to be under siege.

    I'm with you, Scarlet - no ice!! -- although I must say the silence of the winter night broken only by the cracking of branches falling is pretty surreal and memorable.

    I already have bread and I can do without milk. If the power goes out, I can still light the gas stove with a match. And we have a fireplace and a whole yard full of wood. All set!

    I'm blessed in that when it snows it rarely stays and even rarer does it turn to ice. Our white spells are short, but our cold snaps aren't. Heading into another today. sigh. Who needs to go out when it's below zero.

    MM, she is a little angel, isn't she! Still waiting on the first of the white stuff.

  6. Scarlet Pumpernickel // January 9, 2011 at 3:29 PM  

    Joanne, guess it will hit SC after passing through GA. Hope it isn't as bad as they are forecasting.

  7. Scarlet Pumpernickel // January 9, 2011 at 3:30 PM  

    Barbara, yep you can count on the people of GA to buy out the milk and bread.

  8. Scarlet Pumpernickel // January 9, 2011 at 3:33 PM  

    Dale, below zero? Oh no, I wouldn't go out in that either. A good book and some hot chocolate and you're all set.

    A cute baby to snuggle with would be wonderful! Adorable!

    Yep, Mary she's perfect for snuggling in cold weather. We've got white stuff. Started sleeting about 5pm. House tops are white and they have called school. As long as the power doesn't go off, I'm good. Even if it does I can write on my alphasmart.

    OH, boy!! A snow day in Georgia is really a snow week!! LOL We had fun when that happened. Enjoy! Hope it stays snow! Give that little snow angel a kiss!

    There's nothing cuter than seeing a snow baby:)
    Love the pic, and I'm glad for the snow one needs tree limbs heavy with three inches of ice hanging over their roof.
    Have a happy, warm day!

    Snow in Georgia!!! I'm watching the kids build a fat snowman across the street. Like you, Scarlett, they're enjoying a day off from school.

  14. Mary Marvella // January 10, 2011 at 6:00 PM  

    The kids will be off tomorrow, too! I measured 4-5 inches in different places in my yard! No one is driving in my neighborhood. Even if I could get past my cul de sac, there are three steep hills on the way out of my subdivision.
