It's true! It's snowing just north of us on the other side of lake Pontchartrain, and the reports are that it could snow here! The last time we had snow was four years ago. Which was very brief and only stayed for about a day. Everyone ran outside and made general fools of themselves.
I'll never forget 2004 Christmas day pulling onto the ferry ramp to get across the Mississippi River to the east bank to visit my parents. It was so creepy driving across the ramp onto the slick slippery snowy surface of the boat all the while eyeing up the small chain covering the opening on the opposite side of the boat that was supposed to keep me from going into the river if I began to slide. I was on the last load of just a few cars before they closed the ferry. Then the next summer we had Katrina. Everyone blamed the freaky Christmas snow of '04 for Katrina. "Oh no, We don't want no snow! Remember what happened last time we had snow?"
Of course it's the talk of all the news stations (this picture is from WRNO). The usual is happening when we get a bit of snow. People are giddy, excited, sliding off the road, wrecking their cars and cancelling school! That's all for this sprinkle of snow. Oh, I hope it snows here!!!!
Today is Tera's Christmas band concert. She plays trumpet and violin. So I have to go bake some cupcakes for the bake sale. Everyone demands that Tera bring cupcakes because they love the icing I put on them. Tera said all the girls lick the icing off and throw the cupcake away. Maybe I need to improve my cake recipe? But how do you improve a mix? Seleste is singing with the school choir at the Omni Royal in the French Quarter tomorrow. Then at breakfast with Santa at the school Saturday. Then at the Intercontinental Hotel Monday....yikes.
I still need to alter their Christmas dresses....wrap presents....I haven't even decorated yet....Maybe it's to late....I did decorate the church....drat...I can't go to the ladies party tonight....there's a concert.....but there is the Garden Club Party Saturday.....(smile smile smile)
Musical introduction...ta da da da.....It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!......
Are you ready?
