Are we overreacting?

It snowed!! I'm so excited! It was so pretty coming down in big, white flakes!

Okay, I understand that these southern cities have no snow removal equipment and tend toward the side of caution. I know that drivers get a little crazed when white stuff falls from the skies. But I gotta ask you. With no snow in the forecast, a high of 50 expected today, and this much snow on the ground:



Would YOU cancel school? Me, either. For heaven sake, you can still see the GRASS!! And no, that's not ice on the road, it's water. The snow has already started to melt. Which isn't good, because the kids I have to babysit on snow days (schools closed, parents still work) won't be able to make a snowman by the time they get here. That's gonna be one long day.

WHOOOOOOO you got snow! I know how much you've missed it! YAY!

But heavens no, school shouldn't be cancelled for THAT, that's basically rain that sticks for an hour. LOL.

But I hope you enjoy your snow day, such as it is! :-D
I'd share our 10-12" with you, if I could. It's not going anywhere soon.

Okay, wait, I didn't get the little notice at top saying my comment would be visible if you approved it. So ... I'll try resubmitting it once, forgive me if you got the first one and think I'm pestering now ...
