Well, it looks like winter is here! I’m thankful I don’t have to go anywhere soon; School has been canceled and I’m staying with friends who have a nice fireplace! The forecast says to expect 11.5″ of snow on top of a nice 1/2″ of ice! That doesn’t happen often this far south. Needless to say, there’s a general sense of panic around here. People are driving into ditches (because they never learned to drive in snow), branches are falling on cars and the grocery stores are completely out of bread!
