Should’ve Bought The Bread And Milk

The last time the weatherman called for snow, we expected to wake up to a few inches. Instead, there was nothing. Later that morning, we got the smallest of dustings, but that was it. We were pretty disappointed, but not surprised, since in SC, winter isn’t winter so much as it is fall-spring-summer, with a handful of days cold enough to wear a fleece jacket and maybe a day or two where it’s so cold that school is called off. It’s all over the place.

The weatherman has been talking about snow this week, but my part of SC wasn’t expected to get more than a dusting if we were lucky. I didn’t think too much about it because of last time. So, I didn’t join the horde of people at Walmart going on a bread and milk run last night. Nor did I buy booze.

And then I woke up to this.

We’ve gotten about four inches so far, which is the equivalent to 18 inches elsewhere, so boom.

And, as the picture shows, it was mid-70s earlier in the week and now it’s Snowmageddon!

  1. I almost thought the title was a quote from The Last Supper but that’s just my confused Sunday afternoon state πŸ˜‰ I’m all for a bit of snow but it seems cruel coming in March. Hope the thaw arrives quickly, Dmd πŸ™‚

      1. That happened to us not too long ago (we’ve had a couple weeks where one day was close to 60 then 2 days later was 30s and snowing; hello New England!) I’m hoping this will be our last snow before spring really sets in!

  2. We’re expecting anywhere from 6 inches to a foot, depending on which weather moron you believe here. No matter what, I’m ready with the most important supplies: cookie dough, chocolate chips, ice cream… … … I bake when it snows. What, am I doing it wrong? πŸ˜‰

  3. LOL! Yeah, snow in the South has a higher equivalent elsewhere, funny. Here in NJ we had 60s on Friday, and tonight it’ll get down to single digits – brr!!!! And a snowstorm forecast for Tuesday. Sigh. Spring? Spring? Paging spring!

      1. Every time I build an igloo it only lasts a few days before it gets taken down by Mr. Sun and Mr. Rain. It’s not out of the question though because they are fun to play in! When I think of snow in the south I think of Heat Miser and Snow Miser πŸ™‚

  4. We had 85 degree weather today here in our part of California. It’s too early for warm weather but I will take it over snow in the South any day. I remember when it snowed in Georgia, maybe 3 whole inches, and the whole place shut down for 2 days.

    1. Yeah, we do like shutting things down. A few times, there was no snow, but that it was just too cold, and the shut down the schools. Luckily our four inches was gone by the end of the afternoon.

  5. I’m in Michigan and we just got through a huge power outage then they called for 5 – 8 inches of snow. But, being Michigan we got a dusting but very, very low temperatures. And by Saturday we’ll have highs near 50 (not bad for Michigan in March)!
