I kid you not...

The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Conditions Warning for this area because tomorrow it might snow. The first half of the entire local news show was filled with warnings about checking fluids and breaks before you leave the house in the morning.... If you have regular breaks, be sure to pump them and if you have anti-lock breaks, just apply steady pressure.... There will be 300 DOT workers patrolling the area overnight to keep an eye on the situation.... My mom's school is delayed 2 hours, and it is only 6PM the evening before.... You know, we just don't know how to handle snow here in the South. People panic, picturing being snowed in for days at a time, cut off from the basics of life. I bet there isn't a loaf of bread to be had anywhere in the greater Florence area!! We have to brace ourselves, because we are expecting SNOW, that's right folks, Florence might get.... wait for it....

.27 inches of snow!!

You read that right. That is one big ole' quarter of an inch of snow. I wonder if it is too late to stock up on staples?

HAHAHA! Oh, the south...

In contrast, us Pennsylvannians got probably around half a foot last night, and the ONLY reason our districts got a 2 hour delay (that wasn't announced until last minute) is because it had frozen to ice underneath because of the below zero night and the ice trucks had some efficiency problems this morning. Otherwise, half a foot would be just another normal day here. =D

That's how it was when we lived in Seattla - contrary to what you might think, they don't get a lot of snow on that side of the Cascades, so it really wigs them out. They also acted like they were going to die if the temperature got above 80 (and this was with zero humidity). Robert and I thought it was pretty darn funny.

Hope you didn't need any bread. :-)
