Another Major Snow Storm in Alabama?

For the second time in two weeks we in Alabama are expected to have another snow storm.  We had snow on Christmas Day, just two weeks ago, which broke all kinds of records for us.  Now Sunday we are due another major snow storm.  Alabama major snow storms, according to the weather man, is anything over two inches.  So compared to many places in the world that is a laughable amount.  However, since we get so few snow storms around here they tend to shut everything down and the power tends to go out.

Some places in Alabama may get up to 10 inches of snow this weekend.  That is a tremendous amount for us.  The bad thing is, like in many of our bigger snow storms, icing is expected to be involved.  Ice storms are no laughing matter. 🙁  So we are trying to prepare for several days of no power.  This includes as usual the run on milk and bread at the grocery stores.  According to my husband for those infamous “milk sandwiches” which people only eat during snow storms.  ???

So we are prepared to cram seven people, 10 baby chicks, 1 kitten and a dozen incubating eggs around the gas logs for the next few days while we eat our “milk sandwiches”.   Should be interesting!

  1. We are doing the same thing here, minus the baby chicks. We might bring the rabbit in also.

    Mama Hen,

    Sounds like you may not have gotten much snow from the news reports this AM. Hope the kids aren’t disappointed. We have 3 1/2 to 5 inches, at least, with a layer of ice on the bottom and a layer of ice on top. Not good for snowballs and snowmen. 🙁 They have also locally said we may have this stick around most of the week since the temperature isn’t expected to be much above freezing here. Surely solar radiation will melt most of it, if and when the sun comes out.

    Hope you got enough snow to play in. We have found large rounded top plastic garbage can lids work well for temporary sleds. My middle son got a sled maybe 6 – 7 years ago but it has been used so much on non-snow surfaces that it is pretty beat up. 🙁
