Do you want to build a snowman? Cause there's finally enough snow!

The unthinkable happened! It finally snowed more than 1/4 of a centimeter! Have pigs started to fly?! Is that really 6'' that I see?! No one is more beside themselves with joy than Sesame and I. She may have been born in the south but my baby is a good little northerner. She loves the snow.
I want to proclaim from the rooftops that this is best weather we've had all year and we should drink hot chocolate to celebrate! Let's go shopping while there's no lines, no waiting! I can finally wear my snow boots! Six inches is basically only a heavy dusting!
The rest of the town doesn't share our enthusiasm. Everything is shut down. School was cancelled today because it snowed an additional .5'' last night. There are no plows to clear the roads. The
mailman abandoned his motto of "neither snow nor sleet nor rain shall keep me from my job" and hasn't showed up in days. Fort Campbell has shut down so Christopher hasn't gone to work all week. THE END OF THE WORLD HAS COME.
A wise man once said, "There is no one as self-righteous as a northerner living in the south when it snow." How right he is.

If ever there was a time to be self righteous northerner in the south when it's now!

But isn't it nice that the Army gives up on Snow days too? Kev was off Tuesday and while clearly the country was being left unattended, I appreciated his ability to play football in the snow with 3 boys while I watched from the warm side of the window.

I laughed so hard at the photo of the man grilling in the snow. It's true-- the South shuts down when it snows! We got 11+ inches in my neck of the woods and I missed almost 2 full days of work because of it.
