Yesterday, while we were on the playground with the kiddo's, one of the other teachers mentioned that she heard on the Weather Channel that there was a 30% possiblity that we might see some snow today.
Of course... I was all curious and HAD to ask her to repeat what she heard! I was thinking... SNOW! In December?? Really??? It HAS been unusually cold for this early in December. So... maybe it really IS TRUE!
My family and I watched the 5:00 local news on TV yesterday,
This morning, I turned on my computer and decided to check the weather on my MSN homepage. Here is the forcast for TODAY ---
9AM / 29° / Mostly Cloudy
Noon /36° / Rain / Snow
6PM / 38° / Snow Showers
Do you see that??? It says SNOW SHOWERS!!!!
Here's what the radar map looks like this morning. This looks like snow is coming, to me!!
But... his words were practically the same as the weatherman's words last night were. DARN IT!!
I then went to The Weather Channel's website to look at the forcast. The word SNOW was nowhere to be seen on the forcast page. DARN IT, again!
You see... down here in the South, where we rarely see snow, we get VERY excited at the mere mention of snow! -- Well, some of us do, anyway! **Smile**
Tomorrow is my birthday and I would LOVE to see snow on my birthday!! What a fun birthday present that would be!
Last year, we were lucky to see a good snow of about 7 inches! --- To us, here... that is a LOT! The most I've ever seen, actually.
Here are a few photos from last year ---
Here is Ashley, Jackson and myself out in our backyard.
Poor Miranda was at work!
This is one of my very favorite photos!

Later, we drove to town (about 12 miles) to
pick Miranda up from work. We were afraid for
her to drive home. The roads were becoming too dangerous.
Here's a look at my house as we made it back home.
Miranda was a happy girl now!
I'm still hoping to see some today or tonight. The weathermen down here tend to "play down" the idea of snow approaching as not to get everyone's "hopes up". --- It's TOO LATE!! They're already UP!! **Smile**
