I'm Dreaming of a White Saturday...

I'm Dreaming of a White Saturday
A snowed in day for us to see
Chunks of pine straw glisten
As children listen
For neighbors filled with joy and glee

I'm dreaming of a white Saturday
As milk and bread I rush to buy
Where the shoppers hustle
And flex their muscles
To grab the very last bag of rye

Yes siree folks, it's Winter Storm Warning Blizzard Watch Alert 2008 here in North Georgia and we are bracing for the tumultuous storm approaching... where the drifts could reach a whole inch and we're sure to be "snowed in" for, well, minutes at least!

We are bracing... hoping...watching...baking.

Please be safe out there fellow Southerners. It's a mad, mad, weather world.

It's just real freakin' cold up here in the midwest. Too cold to snow--a high of 8 today and a low of -5! I'm hibernating!

Bring it on Baby!! We have snow-age in the south metro. Heavy dusting on the ground and continuing to accumulate! Yahooo, where's Jim Cantore? This is epic!
(yes, I am a native southerner and would whimper uncontrollably if I were faced with real snow anywhere other than on our annual ski trip.) :-)

I actually heard Jim Cantore was in Piedmont Park today broadcasting! I'm happy to say I'm in Nashville this weekend, enjoying some snow-free weather! :-)
