The Storm of 2007: Get out your generator and make sure the pantry is stocked!

It snowed here last night and this morning. Now, we're from upstate NY originally, so we know ourselves some snow and don't even blink at the sight of our cars being buried in the stuff. Down here in the South? They LOSE IT. They had 24/7 coverage of "the big storm" that was coming. They salted the roads in advance. When we woke up this morning and turned on the radio and TV we were told with much urgency that ALL PUBLIC SCHOOLS were closed, not just in our county, but in about 10 surrounding counties as well. When they showed pictures of the traffic? PEOPLE OFF THE ROAD EVERYWHERE. There wasn't a major roadway in the area that didn't have an accident of some kind. We were under an advisory for most counties until well into the afternoon. If you didn't HAVE to travel, you were better off just staying home. Ted and I were wondering what kind of a blizzard we got to wreak havoc all over the state. We looked out the window and saw this:

I'm not even kidding. Let's take a closer look...

Yep. That's it. That's the storm.

Needless to say, we were able to navigate ourselves to work and I was able to get over to the house for some pictures. It looks so great! They had to redo the front porch and create a bit of a step there because the original step into the house was too high for code. Ted and I actually like it a lot better this way, so it works out great. They finally painted our front door so we can see what the adorable little abode will look like when all is said and done. Love it! We got our stove today and it looks awesome. They are doing a thorough cleaning tomorrow and I can't wait to see the kitchen sparkle. They did a lot of the touch up painting and it looks awesome. There is still more to be done, but it looks great. They put the first coat of paint on the french doors and our vision is finally becoming a reality. Even the fugly vinyl floors in the bathroom are making their way into my heart! We should find out tomorrow when our final walk-through will be before closing. Ted and I plan to get in there a few days before and spend some quality time staring at nooks and crannies and jotting down any problems we see. 12 days until the closing! 13 days until the move!

Mmmm, pretty black stove. I'm jealous, we're still living with the spray painted one that's flaking and probably poisoning us slowly.

That's so funny about the storms, it appears southerners are big babies. Mom and Dad notice that alot. When they were in Key West, any day that wasn't 75 and sunny got TONS of news coverage and alerts about how bad the weather was going to be. I guess it's all relative!
