I never feel more stereotypically Southern than when the weather forecast includes a winter event. I get a knot in my stomach and pray I can be home and safely inside before anything happens.
I don’t drive well in wintry conditions and very much prefer to avoid the whole thing. Of course, it doesn’t help that I work about 20 miles from home so there’s always the fear of not being able to make it.
Larry and I went to the store last night although we didn’t buy milk and bread. We just didn’t have real food in the house. We should be set come what may.
Tonight, we’ve had freezing rain and snow and are comfortably settled in for a long winter’s nap. Here’s to a safe night and prayers that the power stays on.
