Gratitude. Or not

I was all prepared to write a gratitude post. But I'm not really sure I'm in the mood for it now.


If there's one thing I've learned it's that people, myself included, love to talk about the weather. This especially holds true when snow is involved. When it is snowing somewhere, I see all kinds of tweets and Facebook statuses about it. I am very thankful that my Facebook/Twitter friends talk about the snow. Why, you ask? Most of you live to the west of me. Your updates give me a heads up as to what's to come my way. I like being prepared.

Monday night I noticed a few updates about snow starting to fall or parents getting phone calls that school has already been cancelled. This led me to check out the forecast for me. Once my computer decides to cooperate and the Weather Channel's page loads, I see a bright orange message plastered on the top of the page.

Winter stormThat right there does not make me happy!


I clicked and it turns out that this possible storm could hit Tuesday, going into Wednesday and give us up to 6 inches of snow. Now compared to Snowmageddon of last February, 6 inches is nothing. It's when it could hit that could screw me. And probably will.

I do NOT want a repeat of this


So to all my Facebook and Twitter friends out there, thanks for the heads up. To Mother Nature, screw you! Just because I finally have snow boots does not mean I actually want to use them in the snow.

I am hearing only 3-5 here for tomorrow. My son could use a snow day, but I'm not sure we are going to get it.

We're supposed to get snow too, but I didn't think it was that much. Now I need to go and check.

We got a lot of snow! Usually central and South AR gets ice but yesterday it snowed all day long. Bad thing is I'm sick and can't go play in it. :(

It's on top of us right now in Kansas. Weatherman doesn't seem to know exactly how much, but so far I'd guess we've gotten 3-4 inches? he said 4-6 or 5-7 was possible, depending what area we're in. ugh.

i need a drink. lol.

We got a few inches last night and it's still coming down. No school today, probably no school tomorrow.

I'm not a fan of the snow.

i never thought about it that way; that you can listen to US about what you'll get a couple days later!
