WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE!!!! Well, eventually yes we will all die. But I don’t think it’s going to happen at this very moment. I live in the South…the deep South and we are FREAKING OUT right now. The weathermen are like Paul Revere yelling “The Snow Is Coming….The Snow is Coming”.
Now, to be fair, we aren’t equipped here in the south for this type of weather. We have no snow plows…the only salt we have is on our table and…chains on tires??? Who thought THAT was a good idea? So that’s why the schools are closed and most businesses are closed and we are all buying up water and bread like it’s the end of days.
For my family, my wife has a rip roaring fire going in the fireplace. She and the kids are planning on sleeping in the living room near the fireplace tonight. This means that I get to sleep in our bedroom…with no heat. That’s awesome!! I’m always hot…so now I get to sleep comfortably.
I’m not going to work tomorrow either. Let’s be honest, the only people who will be at work tomorrow are the…”folks from up north”. I have another name for them…it starts with “Yank” and ends with “ees”. I work with quite a few of them and today they all took time to stop by my office and just laugh and laugh and laugh at us dumb southerners getting so excited over a little ice and snow. Well Chachi, we aren’t used to this weather and if you don’t like our response then you can take your happy behind back to Michigan or Philadelphia, or New Jersey. So tomorrow they will all be at work while us “dumb southerners” will be warm and toasty at home and not fighting the icy roads.
So, my question for those of you from the north and who are accustomed to being snowed in, what’s the best ways to pass the time as a family? Leave a comment and let me know how you pass the time.
