Is your cousin coming from near you? I don't think we really get that much more snow than you do. In fact just the other day I read that this year both the northeast and midwest are going to have bitter cold and heavy snow this winter.
Do you have any plans for the week-end ( other than your babysitting gig, LOL)
She moved to a place called Fulton..she loves it, but I bet she will change her mind when all that snow starts falling..
