As I mentioned, now every time we are threatened with any winter weather, people start talking about how it's going to be another big one. The weather gets hyped up for days by the weathermen. People buy all the bread and bottled water at Kroger. We batton down the hatches and wait for the ice-maggedon. I am not kidding. We do not play in Mississippi.
Well, Monday night, we got a touch of ice. I didn't go out in it, so I'm not sure how bad it actually was, but it certainly didn't look that bad. But they cancelled schools and businesses closed. Then Tuesday night, what ice was left over refroze and we got more ice on top of that. That ice actually looked dangerous and I'm glad they cancelled school again. But it certainly wasn't an "ice storm". More like an ice drizzle.
However, I'm totally ok with over zealous, freak out prone Mississippians because it means they close the university and my husband gets to stay home with me. We had an extra weekend in the middle of the week and it was wonderful. We cooked breakfast and watched movies and baked cookies and drank beer at 3 in the afternoon. It was the best.
My driveway Tuesday night before we got more ice.
I was clearly excited for the ice day. Wilson, not so much.
