It seems like Georgia weather ( whenever it's not just plain HOT) is always in some kind of a flux. From April to June the question is always - is it going to rain? Can we have our party/concert/picnic outside or do we have to worry about getting wet?
From January to March the BIG question is always SNOW? Is it going to snow/sleet/ice. The very second the weatherman says the big S word the whole city is thrown into a panic. Especially since the snowpacalypse of 2014. I can't say that I blame them. I was one of the lucky ones that was at home that day. I had minor surgery and had the day off, but my poor husband( who neglected to listen to my dire warnings) spent 6 hours in the car trying to get home - and he was one of the lucky ones. Many people spent the night in their cars or less than ideal conditions in a fast food restaurant or wherever they could find shelter.
So when the weatherman forecasted snow/ice/sleet for this weekend, we all went into panic mode. FILL UP THE CAR, GET BREAD, GET MILK!!!!! The world is going to end!!!!!
Now I can never figure out why people panic SO much - I mean we are in the south, which really means if we are stuck it's usually not for more than 3 or 4 days. So can I do without bread and milk for 3 or 4 days? Yep. Will I starve? Nope. I have other ways to sustain me. Tequila is always a good choice. Or wine, or even one of the lesser drinks such as soda or GASP - WATER!
I have a whole pantry FULL of food that can be eaten - that frankly SHOULD be eaten and hey, I could probably benefit from being stuck in my house for a week, JUST to go through my pantry and clean it out a bit. Since DH and I have been on a couponing and BOGO kick, it's getting a little full.
So bring it on Mother Nature. But if you do, leave the power on please but kill the internet. That way I can stay warm but not feel obligated to work. This is the one time I won't be mad if Comcast fails me.
