Well, I’ve been snowed in since yesterday morning.
That statement is so weird because I live in Alabama.
The whole situation was a bit frightening yesterday. Roads transformed into ice rinks. Commutes turned to day-long travels. (Thankfully, mine only lasted two hours. I heard of some people stranded on roads for 24+ hours, while others had to abandon their cars for shelter.) Interstate scenes look like they’ve been pulled from the Walking Dead. Some people have deemed it the “Snowpocalypse.” (It’s more fitting this year than it was when we got a few flurries last year.)
The office I work at closed early, and by the time I got home yesterday afternoon, close to half an inch of snow had fallen. (This is a huge deal for us Southern folk.)
So, naturally, Josh and I had to play in the snow.
Here’s a look at our snow day fun:
Grab your non-perishables and head to the storm shelter. It’s snowing in Alabama.
Honestly, though, it does look fierce out there because of the wind.
I went outside to check the weather/take a picture of the snow and didn’t bother to completely close the door (I mean, I was only gonna be out there for about two seconds anyway), and the wind blew the door open and threw snow flurries into our apartment! Yes, that’s my big, exciting story about the snow.
There’s not enough to make a snowman or anything, and I don’t think there will be. All this is supposed to turn to rain this afternoon. Ew.
And thanks to last night’s rain combined with this morning’s snow, our roads look frosty or slushy or something. Double ew.
So today I’m trying to stay warm and safe from the “SNOWPOCALYPSE.” (Totally snagged that word from a Facebook friend’s status.)
Have a great Thursday!
