Just three rules…
If you can follow these three snow day rules, c’mon over:
Rule #1: There will be no counting of cookies or alcoholic beverages, as in “God, you’re having another one??” Rudeness!! (That’s a non snow-day rule too, by the way). Don’t be a wet blanket.
Rule #2: There will be no making fun of snow attire or lack thereof (including snow socks shown here).
Rule #3: Be the voice of reason. When the weathercaster says, “Don’t get out on those roads unless you absolutely have to” that, my friend, is an open invitation for my husband to fire up his Jeep Wrangler and let all hell break loose. And I could use a little help in talking him down. As soon as he hears that sentence, he says, “Let’s go.”
“But we don’t need anything,” I say.
“We must need something! C’mon! Maybe we’ll find someone stranded in a ditch.”
I’ve never quite figured out if he would actually help pull the person out of the ditch or just drive by and say, “That right there is exactly why most people should stay at home.”
Disclaimer: If there is someone actually outside our house squealing tires and doing donuts, I just sigh and put my shoes on.
