We've got quite the winter weather here in the Natural State. It's nothing like what's going on up North, but it's a big deal for us cold-blooded Arkansans.
I find it a bit ironic because tomorrow is my birthday, and I was born in an ice storm.
So when I woke up this morning and stood looking out the window, it crossed my mind that 26 years ago, my mom must have woke up, waddled over to the window (haha sorry, Mom) and looked out only to see something similar to this. . . .
I tried to imagine what I would be thinking if I were standing there, 9+ months pregnant, and watching giant snow flakes fall on top of solid ice, not even able to see the road. Panic.
I now have a new appreciation for my mom.
Well, fortunately I'm not about to go into labor, and Greg and I have plenty of everything we need to get through the storm . . . toilet paper, firewood (thanks to the ice storm of 2009), and wayyyyy too much junk food for our own good. ;) What else do you need?
Wherever you are, I hope you are staying warm and spending this time off school and work with the people you love most!
