It is snowing here. The schools are closed. Some of the roads are getting bad. This area of the state has a lot of mountains and lakes which means winding roads and bridges. My mother and I went to McDonald's to get hotcakes this morning. The snow was beginning to pack on the streets. My sister's school closed at 9:15. Why did they bother to even open? I guess after they got there, the roads started to get bad.

My sister had to stop on her way home and stock up on Diet Dr. Pepper. She's like me. While others are buying milk and bread, we are buying diet soft drinks. Can't get snowed in without them. I am a true southerner. I drink iced tea in a blizzard. As soon as I got up this morning, I hobbled into the kitchen and made a pitcher of tea. I may make another one.

If it is snowing in your area, stay safe and warm. Make sure you have plenty of good food, soft drinks and iced tea.

Oh do stay safe and warm. It's all in the news up here how unusally cold and stormy it is in the south this winter. We're so used to it, but I'm sure Enjoy your iced tea and a good book and stay inside!
