It’s Snowin’ Y’all!

You’d think a blizzard of Biblical proportions is hitting the deep South right now. School is cancelled, government buildings are closed in anticipation of…..1-3 inches of snow.

The weatherman could barely contain himself last night as he went through “possible weather events”. I couldn’t believe they preemptively cancelled school, which also means my Mom’s Day Out was canceled for today as well. This morning I awoke to? Rain. Now, there is snow falling from the sky, but it’s not sticking on the ground or anything. It was in the upper 40’s yesterday, so I don’t see how we could have any accumulation, despite the weather guy’s giddy predictions.  I did call the kids over to the window to see the “snow” and they were excited so see the flakes, but it’s nothing we can go out and play in so far.

Ok, so as I was writing this my neighbors showed up, dressed like we live in DC, and asked us to go for a walk. I got the kids ready and the precipitation had turned to sleet by the time I got their coats and shoes on them. We walked in the sleet for a few minutes and then officially called it quits.

So much for the snow in Lower Alabama..

    I always laugh how insane the weather people get when anything out of the ordinary is going to happen. I mean, come with it people!

    It has been freezing rain here all day too and to hear people talk about the sleet, you would think it was the biggest novelty.

    This is too funny! John just got done putting a pork shoulder in the grill to smoke overnight (yes, he does weird things like that). He had to bend down to do it because the grill is more than half way covered in snow, and since John was actually standing on top of all the snow, he was way way way taller than a man should be when compared to a grill. So yeah, despite all the snow, we still barbecue. We’ve had snow since before Christmas and the temperature has never gotten anywhere close to above freezing. Talk about acculation.

    Ps. This is the deep south of Finland. You go any further south and you have swim (well, walk on ice, that is).

    Accumulation. (Correct spelling for “a lot of snow”)
