This is my view out my kitchen window at 5pm.
Those are snow clouds behind those trees. The weatherman
says the snow will be here at 9 pm tonight! We have prepared all day!
In the South, we don't do snow well. Really, we don't do snow!
We can't drive in it and we don't know what to do but prepare.
So we go to the grocery store. Yes, I've gone twice!
We go to Sam's. Yes, I've stocked up today.
And we go to the Dollar General Store. Have to stock up
on everyday things. We have to prepare because we are afraid.
What are we afraid of? The darkness, of course...
Why sometimes the power goes off....for days!
And the roads are not clear .... for days!
So in order to prepare, we shop and eat out.
After all, we may be cooped up with our relatives... for days!
This is what I found at Dollar General today on the markdown.
A HAPPY HOLIDAYS plate for 37 cents!
OK snow, come on....I'm prepared!
(Really, we ARE scared of snow
here in the south. It overwhelms us!)
Hope you have a good week!
