But Inside it's Random Tuesday!!!!
As I sit here writing this post, the temperature is steadily dropping lower and lower. It’s supposed to get down to 21 tonight (which would be just one degree above the lowest recorded on this date—when it was 20 degrees back in 1907). Of course, it’s supposed to get back up to 53 tomorrow—but still, it’s cold RIGHT NOW!!
All of you who are from somewhere other than the
Still . . . I would really love to see some snow before this winter is over! If I have to go through another winter without snow and hear my daughters cry about it, I don’t think I can take it. (Literally, last year the only snow we got was some light flurries one afternoon that lasted maybe 30 minutes. Delaney and I were actually outside squealing at the pitiful little flakes falling from the sky. It was really pretty sad! LOL And when it warmed back up to like 65 degrees the next day, she actually cried because winter was almost over—and still no “real” snow.)
And, besides, if it's gonna get cold enough that I'm miserable . . . it might as well snow and at least look pretty outside! (IF it could actually stay on the ground and not turn into a slushy, mushy mess--which it always does down here in Balmy Bama.)
I'll never forget the day I sat in the library at Ramay Junior High School, looked out the window, and literally saw snowballs the size of softballs falling from the sky! By the time my mother picked me up 3o minutes later, the ground was already completely covered in snow. We slipped and slid all the way home, then enjoyed another snow day afterwards! (It's one of my most vivid wintertime memories from my childhood!) The girls get extremely jealous when they hear any of those sorts of stories!
So, for today’s Random Tuesday I thought I’d throw out a little bit of winter fun. (For those of you who are new to my blog, I always post a Random Tuesday little quiz that you can join in by sharing your answers in my comments section or posting them on your blog and letting us know you did it!)
So have fun with some Random Tuesday Wintertime Ramblings . . .
* Is snow fun or a nuisance? Absolutely FUN, since we never get it. (Except it becomes a nuisance because our power invariably ALWAYS goes out and that I cannot handle!!)
* Last snow you’ve seen? Probably the flurries we saw last New Year’s Eve on vacation in
*Biggest snow you’ve ever seen? That would be the Great Blizzard of 93 down here in Alabama. McKenna was just at a year old and we lost power and couldn’t go anywhere. A baby in a freezing apartment is not fun!!
*Have you ever shoveled snow? Nope (the closest I’ve done is try and scrape ice off of my car windshield!)
*Build a snowman, or make snow angels? I just LOVE making snow angels--yep, I'm like a little kid when it comes to that!--but if it snowed tomorrow I’d have to get out in the yard and build a big snowman with the girls.
*Who would you like to throw a snowball at right now? Oh man, I better not mention anyone “real” or I might get in a lot of trouble! But I wouldn’t mine throwing one at the guy who decided that "Heroes" (my new favorite tv show) won't come back with new episodes until January (last night's episode was the last until Jan. 22; it was SO good, by the way!) and ditto to the guy who did the same thing with "Lost."
*It’s snowing furiously right now. Are you out in it, or in front of the fireplace? I’d prefer sitting in front of the fireplace (with a steaming mug of hot chocolate, a good mystery, and maybe some chocolate!), but I’m sure I’d be drug outside.
Go ahead, send me your answers to all of these or just some of the questions. I LOVE to learn more about my blogging friends.
Have a great day . . . and "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow . . ." (I wish!)
