1"-4" of white decoration . . .

Snow. That is what they are saying.

I am so excited!!

Someone said to me the other day not to get to excited, because when it did not happen I would be disappointed.  That made me think back over the past 20 years of winter in the South.  No, I don't get disappointed when the prediction falls short or too far away.

I realized tonight, there is something in the excitement of the anticipation that is satisfying in itself. There has been a buzz around town. The announcing of the closing of schools - just in case.  The banter between the optimist and the pessimist (or perhaps realist - we will see).

I am glad they close schools - first, how many bus drivers (let alone myself - not in a bus) are actually safe drivers in snow, should we blessed with a little? Second, how often do we get to see the white fluffy stuff? And how often does it stay on the ground more than 4 hours? 

So it should be a local holiday. Take time and enjoy the change of pace, smell the flowers. Well, actually, catch a flake on our tongue or just sit by the window and watch the floating flakes fall...

Ahhh, yes, this is exciting enough I might not be able to sleep tonight!

Just a hint - if you live in TN, flush ice cubes - you'll get snow!

I hope you got that hot chocolate stocked up, a towel or rug for the floor by the door - oh, a pot of soup, too.

A camera charged up so you can take a load of pink-cheeked pictures!

I'm so excited for you: LOL Believe in a Snowrific Tomorrow:)
