There's a joke in the south that when the weather men begin calling for snow, we Southerners don't run for the hills.....we run for the shelves, grocery shelves to get our milk and bread.
This time when the weather men called for snow we needed our milk and bread, and our sleds, some chili beans or soup, comfort foods, evaporated milk for snow cream, and generators.
The first snow of 2016 brought down trees, power lines, and eight plus inches of that white stuff we don't see around here too often. It started as ice and sleet but then turned to snow, big flakes of snow that quickly covered our small town. Our schools, businesses, churches, and day cares were being canceled......Snow Day!
Our little town of Dacusville became a Winter Wonderland.....
Snow Day led to snow week, the snow lingered around for a week before it started melting away, but soon enough the beautiful white covering gave way back to the dirt and gravel and everything turned back to normal.....but they say, if snow stays on the ground for longer than three days there will be another.....better stock up on that milk and bread.
