And We Have Snow...

I'm sure I'm not the only one, but when the weatherman on the news says that we're going to get snow - I'll believe it when I see it!  Well, I believe it.  The snow started shortly before 9 this morning.  Of course, the jury is still out on how much snow we will get.  I think they're saying 4-6" and lots of blowing, but so far we've just got a dusting.  It's coming down quite steadily, but the flakes are really small so they don't pile up too fast.

I'm hoping it doesn't get too bad, at least not 'til a bit later.  I prefer to stay home when it snows and don't get out unless I have to, but today I have to because I have an appointment with the dentist this afternoon.  Well, I could have rescheduled, but I'd have to wait another two weeks and who knows what the weather will be like then.  So, I'm going.

It's not that I can't drive in the snow - I just prefer not to.  And it's surprising how many people have forgotten how to drive in the snow since last winter.  The first real snow of the season always seems to catch them by surprise, which doesn't make much sense.  After all, we live in Wisconsin!  Now, a snowstorm in Texas where they're not used to snow could cause a real Houston migraine, and that would be entirely understandable - but we're used to snow here, or at least we should be.
