Let, It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!
I grew up in Utah, and as a result, have fond memories of lots and lots of snow every winter. Since we've moved back to Utah, we've had some fantastic snow storms, but the weather hasn't been quite as I remember it. I've wondered whether the weather patterns have changed (due to global warming and who knows what else) or whether it is just my memory that is a bit off. I'm guessing it's some of both.
Well, I always gave the state of Virginia a hard time because they had a hard time keeping up with one or two inches of snow. Cities would shut down, schools would close - the news of a snow storm would send hundreds of people running to the store to stock up on bottled water, milk and bread - they would clear the shelves! I had friends who wouldn't go anywhere for 2 or 3 days when those dreaded 2 inches of snow would fall. I just didn't "get it."
When I was in high school, I recall one day where school had been delayed for ONE whole hour. It had been snowing all night, and we had over a foot of new snow. Yet, school was only delayed an hour.
Well, it's been snowing all night. It's a decent amount of snow (8 inches?), enough to make me wonder if school has been canceled or even delayed. But no, the news stations aren't reporting any school closures or delays. Since The Princess has to catch the bus at 7:00 am, we are up and moving.
Let It Snow!
