Are you having visions of snowflakes? I am. The National Weather Service has issued a Snow Advisory and a Heavy Snow Warning for counties along the I-20 corridor and north of the interstate. I can't remember the last time we've been put under either one of those advisories. Last time it snowed in central Mississippi, we were under a Winter Weather Advisory, which isn't as exciting. By the way, both advisories start at 5pm Friday and go until 2am Saturday and some accumulation is expected. Take a look at the map and locate your county to see if you are included.Here in Mississippi, a little bit of snow will make residents drive crazy. So be prepared to drive slow. I don't anticipate power outages or the need to stock up on non-perishables, but I imagine some residents will "think" they hear that suggestion and pack the grocery stores anyway. So if you see some snow where you are, enjoy it while it lasts----we'll be in the 60s by early next week!
