Greetings from Gulfport, MS, home of yesterday’s ice storm Leon.
Those of you (like my son Domer) who have endured months of snow and cold might not think much of our “little wintry mix,” but let me assure you, it’s way worse than it looks.
Folks down here don’t buy coats — they don’t need ’em.
Communities don’t own snow plows — ditto.
And waking up to 24 degrees (that feels like 14) is most unusual. Temperatures here aren’t supposed to drop below freezing, winds aren’t supposed to howl like a wild thing from the northwest, pipes aren’t supposed to freeze, people aren’t supposed to sleep on the floor of the local Home Depot because they can’t make it home.
So “cold” is relative, you know — Enjoy!
