They're Pumped

The energy level just went up about a thousand watts at my house. Now I know for those of you that live up north and get have tons and tons of snow all winter long that you think those of us down south are just crazy. And I'll admit most of the people down here are but it is very rare that our kids get snow. I got up this morning and saw online that they were calling for snow tonight. Being the smart woman that I am I kept my mouth shut because I knew that my kids would go insane and I wouldn't hear the end of it all day long. Lunchtime came and I couldn't hold it in any longer..I mean what is childhoold without the anticipation of snow and a day off from school? I let them watch the weather at lunchtime and they were glued to the tv...it was priceless! Now mind you...most of the time when they call for snow we get nothing!!!!!!! However there will be absolutely no milk or bread at the grocery store and if we get even half an inch the entire town will stop and it'll be heaven for a day. People that never get winter weather are just hilarious,aren't we?

How fun for them...I hope that it snows...and if not, you can borrow some of ours. We will gladly give you some of the 45+ inches we have gotten this winter. Sleep with spoons under their pillows.

I did not know you lived close enough to watch News channel 4!! Are you that close to me? We are waiting on the snow too. It snowed a little yesterday but then it stopped.

have fun... I used to work in a grocery store in HS and I used to laugh at what people felt was so important to stock up on before a predicted storm

It's like that where I love, too. The whole world stops when the temperature drops below freezing with precipitation. :)

Too funny...by boys don't get to enjoy that kind of anticipation, but I sure remember it!

The photo of your kids watching the weather is priceless! Seriously, if Christmas had not already passed, I would be recommending that you use it as part of your holiday card. Too funny!

I can't wait to hear if snow does indeed come to your spot in the world. You won't be able to hold your boys back if it does! :)
