2 Snow Days ! !

We had 2 snow days but we only had sleet in our neighborhood. Some of the neighborhood children had never seen snow and thought it was snowing,they were so excited and even made "snowmen" out of the sleet. I was sick with a stomach virus but managed to wrap a blanket around me and watch them from the porch. School is back in today and the ice and sleet has melted and we are supposed to be back in the 70's tomorrow. Our winter storm was exciting and short. I know that a lot of those in the North are having a hard time and my prayers go out to them. I am very thankful that we do not have it as bad.

We are having a " Snow Day" tomorrow in Florida

We may not get much snow but sleet and ice are in our forecast. Our schools are closed and emergency workers are called in. We are not accustomed to weather like this! This is a rare winter storm!

Snowing in Florida ?

Just heard from a friend that it is snowing in Pensacola, about 200 hundred miles from here. Our weather man says we have a chance to get some here next week. The neighborhood children are excited as well as some adults. I do remember it snowing in 1957. I was 4 years old, My Daddy and I made a snowman! The next time I remember was 1977 when my oldest daughter was a year old,I bundled her up and took her out to play in it. The next time was in 1990. We were in Dothan Alabama shopping about 100 miles from us. We heard on the radio that it was snowing at our house,so we hurried home,by the time we got home it had stopped but our lawn and porch were covered in a white blanket of snow,it was beautiful! It does not happen very often so I am hopeing that we do get some!
