Here in Southern Mississippi we are expecting about 3 - 5 inches of snow overnight. It is supposed to start this evening and snow off and on until around lunchtime tomorrow. Now, I am from Florida so I am probably overly excited about the prospect of seeing snow for the second time this year. However..... I am not freaking out.
Come on, folks! We are talking about MAYBE 3 inches of snow accumulation. Maybe. It will probably end up mostly sleet and rain. But when I stopped at wally world a bit ago to pick up a few things, you would have thought the end of the world was nigh!
People rushing everywhere, stockpiling on everything and lines out the ying yang. Wow. Personally, I keep about 2 - 4 weeks of food on hand at all times. And I have water. And I even have wood although we never use the fireplace because I do not trust my boys around it.
Come on folks. Even if we get the 5 inches, the chances that we will be "snowed in" or lose power are slim to none.
Personally, I am planning to make a snow man or two with the kids (school is cancelled for tomorrow) and watch the snow fall.
Then I plan on taking a hot bath and drinking some hot tea and relaxing.
I'll be back with pics of any snow we may get!
