Why I Love the South

Yes, everyone, it is snowing at my house! I have to admit, I bounded out of bed this morning at 7 expecting 2 to 3 inches, and I was really upset to see wet pavement and yellow grass. But about 9:15 or so, a steady stream of flurries started to fall. It's sticking just a little now.

But on to the point of this post. On the news a short while ago, a reporter was on location in Verbena, Alabama. There's a layer of snow on the ground, and it's very pretty. The camera showed a few shy townspeople who waved from underneath their heavy coats and hats.

And then this sweet old man came on camera, offered the reporter a plate of pies, cakes, and warm snacks, and invited her to an outdoor gospel sing-along in the park that evening. ha ha. Omg. It was so cute.

I don't even know how you stay warm, Natalie! I'd have to move to Florida.
