It’s great to live in the South… for numerous reasons, but on my mind now is how we don’t take snow for granted. A few days ago, we got about 5 inches of snow here in central Arkansas, and there are still things shut down. There’s a lack of equipment for clearing roads and bridges, and we often see some degree of ice with these winter storms that produce snow. The first night of the snow, I saw a local news program that was listing closings on the screen, and one said “City of Conway closed”. 🙂 I’m sure that was meant for the local government, but it was very accurate nonetheless.
I didn’t get to build my (long dreamed of) ginormous snow castle nor Snowzilla, but hopefully there will be other opportunities. I did get to build a snowman, though, and he’s one tough snowdude. He has his arms bowed up at his side, ready to fight, and he has a mohawk. He could definitely beat up your snowman.
On a related note, I had some of the Buffet o’ Blog staff to my house last night, and upon leaving, one of them decided to make buttprints in the snow in my front yard. Lots of buttprints. I didn’t take a picture, but you can just imagine… (Yet stranger things have happened…)
