- Rake the backyard in 70 degree weather so you don't have to do it three days from now when everything is cold and soggy.
- Find the sled that you bought four years ago, after the last snow.
- Ditto on the snow shovel.
- Make sure you have enough milk, bread, and chocolate because the stores will be empty for the next three days whether it snows or not.
- Check the "hourly" weather forecast so you know not only that it will snow but exactly what time you should look out the window to catch it.
- Stay glued to the news channels so that when school is canceled on Wednesday (because you know it will be), you'll be the first to know. Then cancel your plans that you had made for that first "inclement weather make-up day".
- Take bets with friends on whether or not school will let out early (or be closed) on Tuesday.
- Announce on Facebook that we are going to have SNOW so your friends up north will know they aren't the only ones getting to enjoy winter this year.
- Be prepared with an answer for all those friends up north who think we are silly to close school or get excited for 3-6 inches of snow.
- Charge your camera batteries so you can capture this one for the memory books!
Come on in, friend! Pull up a chair, grab a cuppa, and let's chat! I'd love to share what God's been putting on my heart about the topics of family, femininity, and faith, and you do the same.
