The Weatherman Got It Right, Snow Is Covering The Ground!

There were many doubters when the news began to forecast inches of snow in our area, I was one of them! Many times I would prepare for a snowpocalypse and nothing happened except rain.  Today I woke up to inches of snow covering the yard and sleet still falling from the sky.  

Many of the area schools have announced closings. Click HERE to check your school. 

Because I was unprepared, I had to go get formula for my 4 month old Zion and in a 2 mile drive I saw 3 trucks stuck on a hill and 4 transfer trucks wrecked on the side of the road. The South gets picked on a lot when it comes to snow and driving. What people don't realize is that below the snow in the South is a thick layer of ice and no matter where you're from (unless you have snowmobile) there's no driving safely on ice. 

Some helpful hints from AAA if you HAVE to drive.
