Oh ... Really?

Here comes the snow doot n doo doo

Here comes the snow
And I say, it's all right ...

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the SNOW, here comes the SNOW
and I say it's all right

Woo hoo! Snow!

Oh wait ... must do the panic thing first ... OMG! I need to get milk! No ... nevermind, I don't drink milk. Toilet paper! Must get at least 20 rolls! Run run run to Kroger!!! Ahhh the sky is falling! The world is coming to an end!

OK, got that over with. Snow ... way cool. I hope it's a good one. We haven't had a good snow here in a couple of years, and certainly nothing like the blizzard of '93. Or even the ice and snow storm of '96. How 'bout the freezing rain storm of '82? Where were you then? I believe that was the first time the University of Tennessee ever closed due to weather. The only other closing I can recall (and I am sure someone will correct me) is the Blizzard of '93.

I did go to Kroger today ... not to stock up on necessities, but to get the fixins for a feast. I had a hankering for Thai Cashew Chicken, but didn't want to spend the bucks at a restaurant for it. I also recently discovered jasmine rice ... oh. my. goodness. Awesomeness! It defies description ... just get some and try it. If you like rice, you will love jasmine rice. Anyway, I got the stuff to make the most awesomest Thai chicken with cashews (recipe below the fold), plus a few other things, including Girl Scout Cookie ice cream ... no kiddin, it's for real. Thin Mint ice cream. Yummmm! Surprisingly, the store was not all that busy. I expected to fight a crowd, but it seemed to be the usual number of Friday evening shoppers. I have often thought that weather forecasters and grocery store managers were in collusion to drum up business for the stores.

Right now it is just raining a bit, and it is a little too warm for snow. Maybe when I get up in the morning I will have a nice winter wonderland outside. Since I have no pressing business to attend to this weekend, that would be kind of nice. Snow blogging!
