Snow in Shreveport

We have snow in NW Louisiana. It started coming down about 7 a.m. today where I was (earlier in other areas) and it snowed steadily up until 2:00. At school we carried on as usual and watched it out the windows as we worked. Nothing was sticking because we've been just above freezing all day.

After a break for two or three hours, it's now snowing again and they're predicting 4 to 6 inches. Who knows, really. Schools are already closed for tomorrow in anticipation of dicey driving conditions.

It's kind of funny after watching people in DC all week, and in New York, to see people here going absolutely nuts over this. By 10 a.m. tomorrow it'll all be gone and the temperatures above freezing, but folks are swamping the grocery stores and every meteorologist on every television station is standing by the side of some road somewhere giving "updates on the conditions there."

It's kind of fun, and snow brings out the kid in us all, for a little while anyway. But seriously. I don't think we have to build igloos just yet.

Heck, I don't even have a good snow picture to post for you. It's all melting! Maybe later.
