As all of us in the Southeast are doing, we are constantly checking weather forecast. Some local channels, and you know who you are WSB, are already in that manic mode. All of their meteorologists have a dazed look in their eyes. They are giddy with anticipation of a big snow event. And let me just clarify myself as to what constitutes a "big snow event" in Atlanta.
First, just the forecast of snow makes everyone nutso. Store shelves are emptied of bread, makings for chili, brownie mix and milk. If we actually do get snow, and I must say that we will get flurries once a winter, all TV is interrupted for "black ice" warnings Yes, we are a bit crazy!
Secondly, if there is an inch of snow, than the weather channels declare "Snow Jam 2010"! Nothing else in the world is news worthy as Snow Jam 2010 becomes our only news event.
Since living here in Georgia, we once received 7 inches of snow. Trucks could not come into replenish the store shelves. Schools were closed for 4 days. My kids had a ball sledding on the hills of the local golf course. (Wasn't I the rockin' mom to have saved their sleds from Chicago!)
So, and finally getting to the point of today's post, there is no wavering whatsoever on the weather forecast for Thursday. Snow showers for Thursday. We shall see. We shall see!
