Snowed In

So it is supposed to snow/ice/sleet something this weekend. I only know this because they have been talking about this on the news (as their LEAD story) all week! They have been treating the roads for 3 days. The grocery stores are cleaned out, and my friend called to ask me where she could get a sled last night.

I'm all down for snow...not the ice. Southerners do not do well with ice. Right before I moved to Raleigh in 2005, they had a little ice storm and the whole city came to a deadlock. People skidding everywhere. Kids having to spend the night in schools because they couldn't get home. People said it took them 7 hours to drive 10 miles to get home from work!

Last time it snowed, my friend and I ventured out to Wal-Mart and Target to get some rain boots so we could play in the snow without our feet freezing off. (I know...we are crazy like that...the roads were not clear and it was still snowing, but it was a fun little adventure!)

I don't want to be stuck at my house by myself and bored all weekend, so Cam and I are going to have a slumber party at a friend's house. I have my rainboots and wintercoat ready and we are going to make some Chicken Divan and I got a box of peanut butter brownie mix to try out. She has a Wii and I am going to stop and get a movie at the Redbox. She has a dog, so Cam will have a friend. My house is a mess this week and could stand to be cleaned this weekend, but this sounded so much more fun!

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

Good luck with the storm! I am from Iowa and lived here all my life so I am very used to it but the year I lived in South Carolina I knew that they would freeeeaaak out if there was even the slightest bit of snow/ice. So funny!
Be careful and remember... don't slam on your brakes. Pump them. Best advice ever...

Your slumber party sounds fun! I'm so over winter... I just want sunshine and warmth!

Fun!
I suggest you stock up on hot chocolate mix too. It's essential to snowed in weekends. Also maybe you should bring a game like bananagrams or something silly that two people can play a hundred times without getting sick of it. A deck of cards would probably do the trick. Have fun :)

Found you from Blog Her!
It's 17 degrees here in Philly today -- too cold for me! Enjoy the snow :)

We have about an inch - crazy for GV - w/ ECU here the streets are sure to be filled with people in them! :) A sleepover sounds like SO much fun! I had a friend over earlier but she had to leave - a sleepover would have been WAY more fun. Nola would have loved it... next time... good idea! (Oh, and how much do you LOVE redbox?!)

That was a fabulous idea! Smart thinking Susan! And yeah, Southerners can't drive in the ice it is true. Slow and steady. If you need a ride in the ice give me a call anytime. :)

A Slumber Party sounds like such a fun idea! :-)
