Warm and Toasty
We are expecting some kind of snow/ice storm tomorrow. The weather people (who haven't had the greatest track record of predicting snow days recently) say we should get "up to 2 inches of snow" and "~1/4 inch of ice". Now I know people in the north are like "2 inches of snow...really?!". I lived in the
@$%# cold great state of Minnesota for 2 years in jr. high. School was only cancelled twice. Once, in the middle of the day for a blizzard. When the bus dropped me off I stepped into 4 feet of unplowed snow (up to my waist) and I trudged home not even knowing if I was going the right way because I couldn't see my hand in front of my face. The second time was because the temperature was so cold we could not go outside with any part of skin showing or we would get frost bitten. So in comparison 2 inches of snow doesn't seem like much. But it's defiantly the ice that can cause problems (icy bridges and hills, power outages). I braved the crazed Wal-Mart today in hopes of a snow day. Not to buy bread and milk like the rest of the 50,000 people in Wal-mart but to purchase...Breaking Dawn...dun dun dun. I plan on making a day of it on my couch. Along with these that have begun to pile up.
