Wow! My little town is getting sacked with snow.  Yea, I know a lot of you are thinking, so what?   We do not get snow very often! I live in the Southern U.S. and it’s a big deal here!  People roll in the sidewalks and close up everything that isn’t vital.  All schools are closed, and probably most businesses will be running skeleton crews of who ever can make it into work. Yep, that’s what happens when your city doesn’t own any snow plows. That is problem number one.  We do have truck to salt icy bridges and over passes, but no snow plows.  They simply wouldn’t be used but every 2 to 4 years.  No, what my city does instead is drag out the construction equipment.  That’s right, ye ole road grader subs as a snow plow in a pinch.  Moving snow instead of earth to make sure vital roads are passable.  By vital roads I mean the road to get to the hospital and in front of pharmacies and grocery stores.

Every one that does not have to be out and about is urged to stay home and off the streets. That is problem number 2 when it snows in the South.  People have no idea how to drive in snow, but the rednecks consider it a mission to try!  Yikes! Bubba in his 4×4 truck with the rebel flag flying in the back spinning tires and squealing with glee down the road is really very scary!  I think I will just take the officials advice and stay in. :)

It’s been snowing for about 2 hours and we already have 4 to 5 inches on the ground.  I will upload pics soon, it’s night time here now so as soon as I can.

UPDATE: In all we ended up with 13 inches of snow on the ground.  It took a week before it all melted away. Although this picture was taken after the snow had about melted away, I thought this snowman was hilarious!

He is aiming his moon towards the street lol
