my mother in law called me this morning from Florida. she was worried for us after hearing about the developing winter storm on Good Morning America this morning.
doesn't look like it'll amount to much here where we live...but man, it looks like some of you may be in for it this weekend!
i know you're more accustomed to big snows up in the NE states, but...what's a normal "big" snow, and how does that compare to the foot or two that they're (tentatively) forecasting for this weekend?
i've never been in a really BIG snow storm before. a couple of years ago we had two decent-sized ones, but i don't think we ever got more than 6-8" at a time. and the two times in my adult life that we've gotten walloped here with more than that, i was out of state and missed the whole shebang!
so 1. be careful out there, kids and b. if you're so inclined, tell me all about the big northern storms you've experienced, let me live vicariously through you all for a bit. we just don't get a lot of snow here very often...i don't think we saw more than a dusting ever last year, and this year we've had a couple of inches total, but no more than that.
it's pretty when it happens and i'm NOT complaining, as i love our weather here and the milder winters especially...just curious how the other half lives
