First Snowflake Freakout Lady


We got some surprise snow today! When it started snowing this morning, it was just teeny, tiny flakes that you really had to look hard to see. But it just kept falling. And the snowflakes got bigger. And they kept falling. Soon, it actually started to stick! Oh, how I love the snow! It was like a winter wonderland...

Some people around here (my mom and husband) don't like the snow. My mom grew up with too much snow living in Canada, and she threatens to move back to California whenever it snows. My husband didn't grow up with snow, so what's his excuse? It could be his long commute to work that does it. Maybe he doesn't like the thought of being snowed in. Or maybe he's just afraid that the sky is falling. I don't know.

But since I love the snow so much, I just have to share the love with those who don't.

How do I do this? By calling to give friendly weather reports to make sure they don't miss out. Like today, I called my husband all day long. As soon as he'd pick up the phone, I'd give my report. It's snowing! It's coming down harder! It's sticking! The snowplows are out! You see? I'm just a little ray of sunshine sometimes.

There's a new commercial that plays on the radio around here that cracks me up. It's about First Snowflake Freakout Lady. I know they say "lady," but I'm pretty sure they were talking about my husband when they made the commercial. Unfortunately, I can't embed the commercial on my blog, so I'll just have to tell you how to get to it. First, click here. Click "view the ads" at the bottom of the page. Then go to the list on the left side under "Radio" and you'll see "First Snowflake Freakout Lady." Click on it and you can hear the commercial yourself. Pretty darn funny. And so true.

Well, it's time for me to hit the hay. My husband is already asleep. Should I wake him up and give him the latest weather report?
