Exactly Like Thanksgiving

The lines were long and it was almost as if there were a gas shortage, but it wasn't.   It was just the day before Thanksgiving.     Another lady and I were parked in the line waiting our turn and started chatting.   

"This is crazy weather.   It doesn't feel like Thanksgiving at all." 

I started laughing and said, "How long have you lived in Mississippi?   This feels exactly like Thanksgiving.   One minute you are in your shorts playing football and the next you are bundled up in blankets drinking hot chocolate."

That pretty much summed it up too.     We packed up the van and drove over to my parent's house on Wednesday night.     On Thursday morning, we woke up to a incredibly warm day and the boys all went stomping around in the woods.         By that evening it was raining and the wind was blowing, but we were all snuggled inside playing games and enjoying the big Thanksgiving meal my Mom had made.

Daddy's coffee tasted so good on Friday morning when we all woke up to that cold air which had arrived.     While none of us are Black Friday shoppers and have no desire to get out at 4 in the morning, we did go out about 10:30 to see what was happening at the local Outlet Mall.    After just a little shopping we decided to head back to the parent's house because that wind was cold.

Thanksgiving in Mississippi.... it is definitely a cornucopia of weather!

You can say that again! And here we go again today with a warm up and a fast cool down. With a little severe weather thrown in for flavor!

You are so right, but on the other hand tank tops at XMAS doesn't bother me at all either!

KY is the same way. The saying around here is 'if you don't like the weather, just hang around for five minutes because it's bound to change.' ;-)

Hmmm... it's my suspicion that every where is like that... cause I've lived many different places and that "If you don't like the weather wait 5 minutes" thing seems to be a motto everywhere!!!
