SNOW - on the ALABAMA GULF COAST? Surely they're joking.......
Happy Thursday everyone! Are they serious about snow? I just can't wrap my little brain around it today.
I don't want to minimize what's been happening to my friends in the Northeast, Mid- Atlantic, etc.....I KNOW you guys have been pounded by snow for the last week and are thinking "why is she complaining about a little snow?". You must understand - this part of Alabama NEVER gets snow. The last time we received any accumulation was in 1996, if that gives you a little perspective.
What does one do to prepare for such an event? I feel like I should be rushing out to the grocery store, filling up the car with gas and removing patio furniture. OH! I forgot! That's what we do when a HURRICANE comes. That's how we roll down here!
So here is how I'm preparing today - I'm listing a few items on Ebay, digging out heavy clothes, attending my 5:30 class at the gym, and heading to Mobile for a few days as we're riding in our Mardi Gras parade on Sunday. So I'm headed into "snow zone" where they could get up to 4". The beach is only predicted for 1-2". Maybe I should just stay home!!!!
Hope everyone is having a great day and digging out up north. If we get snow (cause we all know - sometimes they are just WRONG about these things), I will take photos and share. Just don't make fun of my snow "attire" - or lack thereof!
Stay warm! Now.......where are my Uggs????
