I'm much like an 8 year old when it comes to snow. I've always lived in South Carolina so when snow does come it's a big, wonderful deal. And yes, even if it's just a half-inch and the entire upstate shuts down, I still get so excited.

It's about 6:00 pm on Thursday, Jan. 16th and WYFF News Channel 4 Chief Meteorologist John Cessarich (I'm a little starstruck) said that the winter weather should come at any time. No more than about an inch and a half, but enough ice to cancel school tomorrow.

I suppose it's the fact that, unlike rain, snow completely transforms the earth when it falls. Sounds are muffled and everything looks clean and new. And when you live in an area where it just melts away and doesn't get all muddy, gross, and in the way, it's so perfect. Having a day off of work isn't too bad either.

Hot cocoa + lots of blankets + watching snow fall outside = one happy, happy Sara.
