Snowing in Greenville.


Never thought it would happen.  It’s  funny how emotional people around here get about snow. ( consistently reported 2-4 inches, but local news and gossip chattered about “5-8 inches”!!)  And here I was thinking that everyone was making a big deal out of nothing.

Until Sunday night.  When, after 2 inches of snow, our power was out and EVERYTHING was closed – Chris drove to 6 different fast food places before he could find some food for our neighbors and us!  Then I realized – people here aren’t necessarily super-thrilled about seeing the white stuff (with the exception of my mom), they’re just a little more experienced in the ways (or lack therof) that southern transportation systems handle snow.  On our way back from church (it had only been snowing 1 hour), in a one mile stretch of a 5 lane road, there were 17 cars with their hazard lights on (usually in a very precarious, stuck position somewhere), and 5 accidents.  Lanes hadn’t even been cleared on the interstate!!

So, I stand here now, after 20 hours without power, a little more educated.  I won’t give you southerners a hard time about all your excitement again.  It was rather selfish of me to do so in the first place (I really kinda was trying to zap all your excitement, after all, I guess!).  Instead, I’ll make sure we have better flashlights, and a clean house, and LOTS of candles.  And, when everyone is home from work and classes are cancelled, we’ll all just have a great time in the snow.  🙂  And. . . I won’t ever complain about my heating bill again.


About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!
