Welcome to my World...

We interrupt this blog to bring you Arkansas winter weather. There is a 30% chance of light sleet forecasted for later tonight, therefore every school, business, church and doctor's office should cease all activities and people should run panicked to their cars immediately. At this point, hightail it to the nearest grocery store. Every attempt should be made to wipe clean the shelves at Walmart Supercenter. No gallon of milk must be left when you are finished. Seriously, you may be stranded for up to a day in your home. You will starve unless you buy at least $100 worth of bread,eggs and toilet paper. Then commence to your vehicles and drive one of two ways: slow as Christmas or faster than a speeding bullet. Make sure to use absolutely no common sense while driving. Finally, cloister yourself in your home...turn on the Weather Channel...and wait for your children to be hastily let out of school amid widespread chaos and panic (but only after 1pm, so that the school board can count it as a full day and get their money). Enjoy your time off by attempting to make a snowman using only a 1/8 inch layer of ice from your driveway, since that's all you have. Do not leave your home until the temperature warms up to 50 degrees...which is forecasted tomorrow. Thank you for tuning in and be sure to watch the continuous scroll of closings at the bottom of your screen...

It's soooo cold and windy here today. The temps have steadily dropped since our high of 37 this morning. Schools are already announcing late starts for in the morning. We won't get any snow - just ice. Blech. You're so right about the driving! And I'm sick of hearing the guy from Iowa talk about how we don't know how to drive in snow but he does. Whoop-de-frickin'-do, Dude. Sorry. I'm cranky.

well said sista!

I have to laugh- we get dumped 3 feet and everything is still open.
SUCKS- haven't had an actual snow day since I was 6 years old. I thinki that year we had over 10' in 2 days.

HAHAHA! in southern california, they put us on "storm watch" when any amount of rain is in the forecast. seriously, if it's 1/2 inch, we're on "storm watch." people stay home if we get an inch of rain over a 12 hour period. such babies!

Our schools have been closed here since yesterday and look like it will be that way until Friday and I don't think that they will put the kids in school for one day. Tomorrow is cancelled too. It is supposed to be miserable again.

Don't forget the batteries, flashlights, rock salt and shovels. Panicked people are in a frenzy for those too. Ridiculous, but true.

Nothing was better than a snow day as a kid. (sigh)
