Snow Day

We have four or five inches of snow here, covered with some icy mix, and we are at the in-laws' property, alternating between walks and sledding in the snowy woods and warming up in front of the woodstove. No one anywhere in the state is going much of anywhere today. Why would we?

I know you people up North think it's funny how Southerners overreact about snow. I was even a bit grumpy about this snow and how it would shut everything down. But, really, if you didn't have the snow plows and salt to deal with the occasional big snow and if snowstorms were very often accompanied by ice storms, y'all might just be the same as most of us down here, running to the store to stock up before the big storm hits.

Mostly, I think Southerners just know how to slow down and enjoy life a bit more. This post about covers the Southern snow question, for those of you who just don't get it.
