It was coming. The weatherman said it would be a big one. Schools were closed, stores were packed with people getting their bread, milk and eggs. The Tractor Supply Store ran out of sleds. We were all prepared to wake up on January 7, 2010 with a foot of snow on the ground.
Well actually he didn't predict a foot of snow. Just about 1-2 inches. They did close the schools BEFORE it snowed and people did rush to the store for milk and eggs. You can't call yourself a Southern unless you panic when snow is predicted. We woke up on January 7, 2010 with absolutely NO snow on the ground. It didn't start snowing till about 9:30 that morning and we got about 1 inch of snow. Just enough snow to make the kids excited enough to want to go out and play in the frigid cold. We had just enough snow to build a 3 inch pile of snow that we called a snowman. We were able to throw a few snow balls and make a snow angel in the road.
So we didn't get the big snow this time but there is still hope for one this year. The kids are really wanting to go sledding at Granddaddy and Grandmommy's house and maybe we will, maybe we will.
