Mornin' Glory!!! It is Snowing in the South . . .
How do people in the southern region of the United States behave when they get a little snow?
Well . . . we vere off the normal track of life. . .
Our sleep is usually broken from getting up during the night to see if the white stuff has started coming down yet . . .
and once it arrives we get out and take pictures . . . mainly because it is such a rare event for most regions . . . We just go hog wild with excitement!!!!!
There might as well be money falling out of the sky!!! That is just how excited and happy we get.
We haven't had any snow here in about two or more years . . . Can you just imagine???? It will be so good for our water table as we are in a drought, and that slow melt, and soak will be quite good for my irises which did not bloom last year. YAY!!! . . .
Now . . . I have my Christmas tree lights plugged in,
(No . . . I have not taken my tree down yet . . . some people decorate early . . . I guess this year I am undecorating late . . . lol)
and my oodles of noodles simmering hot, and waiting for me . . .
and right now in this moment (3:23 AM, to be exact) I am a kid again . . . no responsibilities . . . no worries . . . now, if I can just find some cowboys on TV I will be in my element . . . more later . . .
Well it is 4:45 AM, and it is still snowing to beat the band. There was nothing too good to watch on the tv, so I am in the kitchen making a pot of homemade chili beans for later in the day. I will sleep later when the excitement wears off. I know for a fact that we will not have classes today . . . (I work for a local community college.) We are supposed to get sleet and freezing rain after the snow stops.
A lot of people think that southern folks just do not know how to drive in the snow. While that may be true to a certain extent, I read that this is not entirely so. Our ground temperature is warm, so when it does snow, a very thin layer of ice forms as the snow falls. This base makes for some very treacherous driving. That plus all of the people who refuse to slow down or follow too close make it very dangerous for the rest of us.

Congratulations on your snow SongofJoy. Enjoy it while it's there, although deeming by your enthusiasm I won't have to ask you that. How long will it last for?
We may be used to snow here in Scotland but it certainly doesn't mean that we take it for granted. It's lovely to see childrens faces as they play in the white stuff. Even adults seem to be out and about more when there is snow on the ground. Enjoy yours while it lasts and thanks for taking piccies of it for us.
I think snow transports many back to their childhood, I know it does for me. Enjoy the snow while you have it SOJ, but I guess you didn't have to be told that :)
Darn! We got the cold when the artic slipped down over the US last night, it's 27 degrees this morning, but all the moisture from the gulf had headed east so we didn't get any of the good stuff.
I would not be so happy Song of Joy.We got snow last year and I stayed home from work.I'm glad you are enjoying it and I think it is beautiful.
I am green with envy here in Mississppi. I have awakened children just to glimpse a few fleeting flakes in the wee hours. So you know I know the thrill and excitement.
