So, following hot on the heels of our “Welcome to Georgia” colds, we awoke to a forecast of snow yesterday! Guess what.
Georgia meteorologists know their shit! This started around mid morning while I was at work and very eager to be done and get home. There is a myth that many Southern folk don’t drive well in the rain let alone snow. Ummm…it’s pretty accurate in many cases. We won’t even talk about fog…
Okay Dan I know what you’re going to say. I give you a pretty hard time about the snow. But since it is a novelty for me I can work with the occasional snow. You know, the ‘relative’ kind. That would be snow that shows up unexpectedly and brings some fun for a few days before packing up and slipping away again, leaving a lovely memory behind. What? You don’t have any relatives like that? 😳
And that is why I am dubious of snow. It is not always predictable, definitely like certain relatives we all know. So far, though, I feel like Scrooge on Christmas morning. I’m as ‘giddy as a school girl’. Yesterday I felt “I must stand on my head!” I mean just look how beautiful it is.
And if I weren’t just creeping out of death’s grip with this dastardly cold I would be sorely tempted to go out and build a snow turtle. That’s right. You heard me. Who needs a cold hearted man? 😉. I even put on my Florida snow shoes and took a few tentative steps.
Then turned right back around! I needed to spend some time with The Doctor. And Earl Gray. And Ebinezer. My own little ‘menage a trois’. 😜
I still may stand on my head before the weekend ends!
I doubt I’ll be doing any shopping until the ‘thaw’. Hey, I’m realistic if nothing else. Christmas shopping is hazardous enough. Add snow in a place where it isn’t the norm and I’m in for the day.
PS. We lost power an hour ago…🙄
I think I’ll draw up plans for that snow turtle though…
