Southerners have no experience driving on ice and snow and there are no snow plows or salt and sanding trucks to send out either. The Sheriff's Department is begging people to stay off the roads as there are so many accidents.
The fountain outside our coffee shop was barely squeezing water out of the top yesterday. I love the look on the alligator's face below in the pool. "Wouldja get a load of this?" he seems to be saying.
Bob the Border Collie had never seen snow before today. She balked at stepping out in it, hugged the house to do her business and hurried right back in the door.
It reminds me of Minnesota, school cancelled for students AND teachers, that luxurious feeling of a stolen day. The bird feeders are busy with birds to watch. I have a good book (The Land Breakers by John Ehle), knitting to finish, and plenty of tea.
Too bad we ate all the Christmas cookies!
