Only state without snow!

It is official! Although it was slightly chilly this morning again in South Florida, all of Florida is the only state without snow in the entire USA today. Even Hawaii has snow on its mountain tops. Brrr!

Being able to follow friend's snow fun on Facebook, I got a good picture of what it looks like in many other states. Especially Alabama has impressed me. The latest snow system from Sunday night/Monday brought over a foot of new snow to the counties were I spent my high school exchange student year. In the 8 years I've been in close contact with people in that area, I haven't heard or seen more than a couple of snow flakes and even my former host family being in their late 50's/early 60's said they have never seen snow like that in Northern Alabama. Needless to say, schools have been out all week up there and people didn't go to work for days, as pretty much no one knows how to drive in snow and does not trust their cars and tires (good thing!).

This is a picture of the local grocery store's empty bread aisle in Rogersville, AL from Sunday, taken by a friend of mine. Stores were pretty much sold out. Even Walmart was apparently very, very empty.

I would actually trade in a day of sun fun for snow fun, but since ONE DAY is usually not an option other than when on holidays, I rather stay down here. It's official by the way, that it's going to be at least another year here in SoFlo for me!

Oooooh, and by the way, since I've been quite busy with other things (being a mommy that is!):

A BELATED VERY HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU! May you be able to fulfill your resolutions and enjoy 2011! One resolution that was NOT on my list this year: weight loss! I'm 13 lbs lighter than pre-pregnancy and I think more will shed since I start working again tomorrow, so nothing to worry about! :)
