It Snow'd!

Here in Alabama we don't get much snow. When James Spann says the word SNOW, the city mobilizes. Everyone rushes out to the Piggley Wiggley to stock up on bread and milk. I have never understood this... we are much more chips and salsa survivors. The city trucks load up with sand, and schools are canceled in preparation. Then we wait~~~ unfortunately the last big snow fall we had was in 1993.
Yesterday, we had about an inch of the white, fluffy- mostly wet stuff. We were quick to get out the camera!

Old Frosty wouldn't have lasted till dinner. There was enough for a good snow ball fight.

I dragged the old sled out of the attic... somehow that round disc has gotten smaller over the years.
It was fun while it lasted!

Now, What do y'all do with all that leftover bread and milk?

Eat lots of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and wash it all down with milk I guess, LOL.
Looks like you had a blast!!

Oh my goodness...it looks like fun! You are so cute on the sled, made my day! Enjoy the beauty of it all.

Publix was crazy on Friday! You'd have thought we were all going to be holed up for weeks the way people were acting! You look cute on that disc. I didn't get out but long enough to take those few pics. And now it's about gone! I couldn't remember the last big snowfall, 93 huh, I do remember that one. Well, it has been awhile.

I did see Beth T. on Oprah the other day! Can you say botox??? Did you notice her lips? I hope her friends will talk to her about that. I hardly recognized her.

Gigi said...

All you people have got to STOP with the snow pictures! It's killing me!!! I NEED snow. I'd almost KILL for some snow. (Not to panic...I did say "almost", you know. No need to call out the FBI on me).

Oh and not to frighten you with this little tidbit but did you know that you and I may actually share some of the same fashion sense? I have a purse that matches your galoshes perfectly. Gosh, people would think we were related if we walked down the street together. (I can hear you screaming all the way over here in Texas!).

Fran said...

Okay....I have the "real" answer! Put the milk and bread in a cooler, pack your sled in your suitcase and come visit me in Maine where you still can't see the ground for all the snow!

jennifer said...

Ooooh, so happy to have found you. I am an Alabama girl too. We are in Blount County and really didn't have much snow at our house. I've heard more chances on Wednesday?!!
My mom has eaten at the Whistle Stop before and one of my favorite books is by Miss Fannie Flagg. With those connections I will have to visit you often! - Jennifer

Sandi McBride said...

I couldn't believe that Walmart sold out of bread and couldn't wait to take Evil Sister to show her that I had not lied about how bread and milk disappears...there was some whole milk left, which means at least everyone was thinking healthy! We got 2 inches on Thursday and it snowed like 40hells on Saturday but no accumlation...drats! I love the snow!!!
hugs
Sandi

Sandy said...

We were hoping for lots of snow but only got the sleet and ice ~ phewy! Great wellies!

Have a lovely week.
Blessings,
Sandy

Mary Isabella said...

Love the snow pictures...Smiles

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Love your boots. And the first thing that came to mind with all the leftover bread and milk was bread puddin'. :)

PAT said...

Bread puddin', anyone?? I just see Lynn, mentioned this too...great minds, ya know!

I love your boots, Sandi!
Pat

tami said...

Why bread pudding, of course.

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

Kari~ I have the matching umbrella... or as your Aunt Sandi may call it 'brolly'
Fran~ Our little bit of snow seems awfully silly to y'all
Jennifer~ I think that almost makes us Kin. Thanks for stopping in.
Sandi~ love your little drawing!

All y'all are agreeing...someone needs to be making bread pudding.

Andi said...

Make bread pudding!!! And post your recipe please!!! I assume you use bread for that...not sure about the milk.

joan said...

Looks like fun Sandi! Love the photos and the one of you on the sled with those cute boots. Bread and milk, well I'm not sure about that. LOL Have fun!

Elle said...

Snow is fun...even just a bit of it...actually a bit is better than a whole lot in my book. You look cute getting ready to slide down the hill.Wheeeee.
Milk and bread...why bread pudding of course.

Sally said...

We just had another 8 inches - snow sucks!!! Oh, and don't forget to soak your raisins in brandy first.

Half Baked said...

We didn't get any of the snow down here in LA:( But it's so funny how even the mention of snow here in the South sends everyone running to the grocery store for "supplies"!!

Jill@Who Could Ask for Anything More said...

This Midwestern Girl always gets a kick out of the mad rush to the grocery when snow is in the forecast. And, you're right...forget the milk, eggs and bread. We go for the chips, beer and chocolate.

Susan Ramey Cleveland said...

Love the boots!

Kristen said...

Oh you two are too cute! We have had snow non-stop since December. Ugh!

I bet it is fun to have snow when you normally don't get to have it.

Emiline said...

I was going to say bread pudding, but you may be tired of that. I'm kind of sick of bread pudding, myself!

The snow in Alabama is beautiful! I would like visit Alabama more. I've only been once.
Also, the sledding looks fun!

Flip Flop Floozie said...

SNOW!! I bet you were very surprised!! Thanks for stopping by Sandi!! Was nice to see you back. Yes, we just celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary!! WOW!! Seems like I just got married. Curves is definitely the way to go. I have been going now for almost 3 years but started working there last August. Need to go but wanted to stop and say hi. Sandy

Vonda said...

Go girl...look at you on that sled! I am so impressed! Hey I know y'all don't get much snow in AL but it's better than nothing right???
