Let it Snow

This morning, as if it weren't one of the best days ever anyway, we woke up to a few inches of snow on the ground in North Carolina.  I. Was. Stoked.

North Carolina, on the other hand, was in a state of emergency.  Literally.  Schools, offices, businesses -- everything was closed.  

This was what I had been waiting for, the freaking out, run-on-bread-and-milk weather that people had promised me.  And the whatever-you-do-just-don't-leave-the-house response did not disappoint.

This is a picture of my street this morning:  (That big old pinkish house on the right is the one that costs so damn much to heat.)

Not much to sneeze at, right?  But I don't fault North Carolinians for making a big fuss.  They're not snow people.  

And even if I was one of two people at work today, I'm just glad that I still live in a state where I can wear boots and crunch around in the snow.

They didn't have a "snow day" at your school-related job?! Awwwww, man. Anyway, love it -- love when there's unseasonable weather that causes amusing-because-not-ultimately-very-troubling freakouts. I hope the last laugh is never on us there! And we got to see a pic of the groovy street and house -- yeehaw! Love it. Well, I'll try to call pronto so I can tell you about cross-country skiing on Jeff's parents' street TWICE over the visit! Much Love.
