{Ice Apocalypse 2013}

Oh my goodness! It is just down-right COLD here....thanks to Winter Storm Cleon that blew in Thursday night. Don't get me wrong, I realize that it's December, and that we should be expecting cold temps and snow....but do we really have to get ice?

A quick recap: Wednesday the temperature here was 73 degrees! I wore jeans and a t-shirt to work...I ran outside in my tank top and running tights. It was warm! Unseasonably warm. The weatherman was forecasting this horrid winter storm and I, along with the entire population of our town, stocked up and prepared as best as we could.....

Then Thursday happened. Hours and hours of freezing rain fell. They kept saying that snow was behind the freezing rain...but just more freezing rain...followed by sleet....but no snow!  {sigh}

It's now Saturday and I'm looking out my living room at a neighborhood that looks like an ice rink and apparently there is more precipitation moving in tonight. I know it's not even "officially" winter, but I'm so over it. I mean seriously, if it's going to be this cold, can we at least have snow?

I'm ready for warm temps, tank tops, and flip flops. 
I'm ready to be able to run outside and not worry about busting my rear on the ice.
I'm ready for the dog bowl not to freeze up.

I'm ready for ....summer.

This Gulf Coast girl has never been so cold in her life than when I was in Memphis this past weekend! I'm not sure how you deal with that every winter!
