It’s snowing in South Carolina!!  They have been calling for snow for weeks now in surrounding areas and claiming that it would reach our area but I always rolled my eyes. It’s SOUTH Carolina.  I never expected actual snow accumulation.  But it’s snowing!  Like a lot.  More than just a dusting, like the entire Upstate might be completely closed down tomorrow.  Haha.  That’s a joke WH and I have about living here.  No one knows how to drive in weather other than sun.  If it’s raining, people drive slow and do really dumb things.  In snow?  I don’t think they drive at all.  I really think everything will be closed.  To WH and me, it’s just funny because we both went to Virginia Tech where we NEVER got a snow day.  I remember one day sophomore year when it was like sleeting and it literally took 10 minutes to walk 20 feet on the sidewalk because they were iced over.  Were classes canceled?  No. Never.

So now that it’s snowing in South Carolina, I can’t wait to see what happens tomorrow.  Will my office be open?  Will WH’s?  If I have to drive around are people going to be driving half the speed limit?  I’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, please try these fabulous burgers.  Healthy?  No.  Delicious?  Heck yes!  How on earth could I pass up anything that has bacon three ways?  WH and I planned to grill outside but it was raining 😦 so we pulled out the old George Foreman.   Worked great!  Best homemade burger I’ve had in a while – yummy!

YUM. I wonder if the H would eat them if he didn’t know the sauce had mayo…
