It is Monday. The sun is shining and it’s 66 degrees. It’s hard for me to fathom what the weather forecasters are saying. Snow? After a day like this? They say it’s possible. The schools have already made decisions to close. I’m almost certain that there is no milk or bread in the grocery store. Why milk and bread? Why do we do that? In the event that we lose power, the milk will spoil. I guess I understand the bread. You could always make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, I guess. I think if I were going to brave the store today, I’d buy flashlight batteries and maybe a new book to read if the roads are going to be closed.
Snow in this part of the world fascinates most of us. It doesn’t matter if its flurries that never hit the ground or a light dusting that covers the windshields of our cars. We tend to lose our minds, take pictures and post them on social media. Southerners are extra in so many ways and a Southern snow storm is just another way to prove it. Here are some things that we do that set us apart from areas that don’t think twice about snow.
