The Storm of 2010.....take 2

A couple weeks ago our ever so genius team of Nashville weathermen predicted mass of amounts of snow, ice, and just plain nastiness. If you are from the South you know, you simply cannot do this. The weathermen should learn by now, the words; ice, snow, sleet, flurries, wintery mix, frozen rain can cause mass hysteria. Please do not use one of these words unless you truly truly mean it, and PLEASE do not use them together! All surrounding schools shut down the night before the alleged storm was to come in (reminding me of the fact that I clearly chose the wrong profession - but that is a whole 'nother post.). Milk, bread, and eggs were non-existent in the kroger/publix/harris teeter's where you could not find a parking spot in all over the city (I made the mistake of "running into" Kroger to grab some chicken for dinner that night....a 5 minute trip turned into a 30 minute trip full fear of getting in the way of a crazy woman and her bottled water). I woke up the next morning like a little kid hoping to see a white blanket across my yard......but to my dismay, you can guess what I found....nothing. No snow, no rain, no sleet, nothing. Now, I will say that we did get some snow....maybe 1/4 of an inch later that day, but nothing compared to the 4 inches they promised us! Why do I allow myself to fall for it every time!??!

Well not this time misters! I am going to stand my cynical ground and call a bluff on the you, Nashville weathermen! Look what they have predicted for tomorrow:

You can only imagine what the grocery stores are going to be like tonight! This is much more then they predicted last time! And I, with much much thanks to by amazing husband, do not have to "run into" the store tonight! He went shopping and made sure we had all the necessities for the weekend - plenty of vino, Jack Daniels, and of course some grub!

After a short day tomorrow (only working until noon -woo hoo!!) when it is all suppose to hit!-given it snows......I plan on heading home to the hubs and enjoying a weekend full of wine, cooking, movies, and finishing up the 1st season of True Blood!

Have a fabulous weekend!!

P.S. This is one of the VERY few times I hope I am proved wrong! :)
