I am so amused

I haven't felt like such a displaced Northerner since my epic battle with McDonald's over sweet tea.

This morning, all the schools in the "7 Cities" (I have to research what cities those are) have been closed because Hampton Roads is under a Winter Storm Warning. We are supposed to get 1-3 inches of snow.

Yes, folks, you heard me right. SUPPOSED to get. It has not yet started snowing. Not a flake has fallen...and schools are closed.

I laughed maniacally when I heard that. The Michigander in me snickered with glee...1-3 inches and things shut down...hell, where I am from, it takes 1-3 FEET to close schools, lol.

Yep...3 feet of snow and 30 below and the schools here will consider closing....if you live in the country (NOT the city)!
