What Snow?

They showed the Panic-o-meter on the news last night. The one that shows when you should get eggs, bread and milk or if they expect a lot of snow, it goes over to the sled and boots. We are officially in the eggs, bread and milk area of the meter.

Unfortunately, what usually happens when we get all built up for a big round of bad weather is that it misses us and we get nothing but a big let down.

However, it has been a year since the big freeze that left our area looking like a war zone and this is still very fresh in the minds of everyone in this area. They promise this will be nothing near that scale, but that we will have some ice and maybe 5 to 10 inches of snow. It's wierd that everytime I try to type 'snow', I type 'snot'.

If it snows, school will dismiss, and the campus here will probably close. That means a day off for us. We are just hoping the power stays on. But just in case it doesn't, I have the heater shown in the picture. My son, The Contractor, installed it for me after Christmas. And, I've been using it to heat my house. I set my central unit down to 50, and have been allowing this little gem to keep me snug and warm. I have closed all the bedroom doors, and open mine about an hour before I go to bed.
So I say, Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow!
What are you waiting anxiously for today?
I hope everyone has a great day. Pray for snow, Love one another.

We're waiting on the snow too. LOVE IT!

I stocked up on cream for snow cream today. :)

And Hershey's kisses because I read you can make lava cakes by putting brownie mix in a cupcake pan and then placing two Hershey's Kisses in the middle of the cupcake tin. We'll see how it goes!

We're supposed to get it pretty badly here in Tulsa. Still just freezing rain. But we're excited!
