Snow, Snow Go Away...

We've had a pretty mild winter so far here in Kentucky, so when the weather man said to plan for snow today, I didn't think much about it.  Imagine my surprise when I woke up to eight inches of snow covering the ground!  I know that's probably nothing for some people that live up north, but that's a lot here in my neck of the woods.  Unfortunately it's not over either.  The freezing rain is starting up and by tomorrow morning we're to have another 2-4 inches of snow on top of all that lovely ice!  Like most people I can handle the snow it's the freezing rain on the roads that I hate!  When is Spring supposed to be here?? Unlike adults, children love the snow - the more the better!  More snow means no school and that in itself is a min vacation for them.  My teen-aged nephew, Taylor (being the little entrepreneur he is) probably loves snow more than anyone I know.  Last week he put this big snow plow on the front of his quad-runner with the anticipation of our first big snowfall.  They live right down the street so first thing this morning he drives down, picks up my son Caden and off they went to plow driveways.  Caden is the front walk snow shoveler.  While Taylor is plowing the driveways, he shovels the walk ways.  Then at the end of the day, they split the money they make so it's a win win for everybody.  As Taylor always says, "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...", but me I'm more the "Snow, snow go away...and don't ever come back"!  I should probably move to Florida! However, a great way to warm up your significant other this winter is by wearing a nice little number from this February 14th.  You'll have no trouble finding love in a Valentine's Day Cupid costume!  And don't forget Mardi Gras is February 24th followed by Read Across America with Dr. Seuss on March 2nd and last but certainly not least the biggest Irish party of the year, St Patrick's Day on March 17th!
