But back to the snow…I spent half of my life living in the north, where snow was just part of the normal weather pattern for at least six months of the year. In the ten years I lived in Spokane, school was only canceled for snow once due to drifting, blizzard conditions. School buses ran like normal, roads were sanded, and we bundled up like Stay Puff Marshmallow people and waddled through winter in boots that looked like what they wore on the moon. That was winter. You learned to live in it and it just became part of your world.
But now…I live in the South. The hint of snow brings declarations of States of Emergency. Everything shuts down and life just stops for days. My town is supposed to get 6-8″ inches today. And guess what? I’m out of town. I drove to Charlotte to see the Lad last night and now…I’m stuck here in Charlotte until at least Friday, if not Saturday. But on the other hand, look at all this Mother and Son time I get to spend with him!
If only I’d remembered to pack one or two Paper Pumpkins to work on!
