We are due to get snow today and my excitement level is a bit out of control. It is so rare that we get any of the white stuff this far down South. As I type this, the weather man says we may get up to four inches of glorious, wonderful SNOW. This city is ready to shut down! Even though I have no job to miss tomorrow, I am excited to get snowed in with my Honey.
We just made our essential snow day grocery list: Oreos, Ruffles, juice, pizza. Why do people always get bread and milk when they are facing winter weather? Who in the hell wants sandwiches and milk? As a couple of foodies over here, we want nothing but junk! Oh and we have five bottles of wine. That should cover us for 24 hours. I hope.
There is something about a good snowfall that makes me feel like a kid again.

I don’t feel like a kid right now. I feel like a tired, cranky adult.
Sadly, I did not post a blog yesterday but I have very good reasons. We lost our electricity RIGHT as it started to snow and sat around freezing for about ten hours. The best part is that we didn’t even lose the power over a weather related event. Just bad luck. Sigh.
But, we are snowed in with about 4 inches of snow on the ground. In Little Rock, Arkansas, that amount of snow is enough to shut the city down.
Check this space tomorrow for a more coherent blog entry.
