I am not liking what I am hearing today….

I am really, really disliking the news today about the weather headed our direction. I just pulled up a TV station website and they were giving advice on what to do if your power goes out. I remember 2007 – it was not any fun and I do not want to see a repeat of that. They are comparing this one more to the storm of 2002 that started on December 23. It was a lot of snow – probably at least a foot? I also remember that one because it took me close to two hours to make the 45 minute trip from Carthage to home. Jay kept calling me to tell me I had to leave work right then – which he never does. That is how bad it was. But I can handle that better than I can another ice storm. I'm sure Charity also remembers the great snow of 2002. She got stuck in Springfield – was it 1 time or 2 times that day? My dad had to go get her on Christmas Eve. Even I-44 was still a mess the next day, after the snow had stopped. They almost got hit by a semi. Fun times, fun times….

I will NEVER forget the 2002 snow!
I got stuck 2 times and hit a times! When help finally came it took us 2 hours to get from one end of town to was AWFUL!!
I keep thinking we hopefully won't get anything since they've been talking about how bad it's supposed to be. Still trying to optimistic!
