It snowed here in the Triad, a good 6-7 inches. It made this really cool white blanket that made everything look pretty and clean. Love that!
The bad news: It snowed a good 6-8 inches here in the Triad. That means we Southerners go into survival mode. (Read: Freak out and buy all the milk and bread in the store that isn't nailed down.) On Friday afternoon about, oh, 5:15 I had the bright idea that I needed not milk (had that), not bread (got that), but a fridge pack of Pepsi. If I am going to survive this blizzard I was was going to do it in style. The CVS by my house didn't have the caffeine free kind (I am trying to be good.) so I decided I would just run to Lowe's Food. There wasn't a parking space to be found. While driving around to find a space I told Caroline the game plan: We would run in, grab the one item, and run out. (Mwahahahahah!) I walked in and the lines were backed up in the aisles. I knew it would be like this so I grabbed the box, walked out to the madness, and breathed... I found a line for cash only, thanked my stars that I had some (I usually NEVER have cash.), paid and left. As we walked outside and got in the car, the snow started falling. By the time I got home (about 5 minutes away) it was coming down pretty hard. That was Friday afternoon about 5:45 and I didn't leave my apartment complex until Monday afternoon. Count people...TWO and a Half days!!!!! Church was canceled on Sunday and the roads kept refreezing at night so I couldn't go anywhere. Oh, and Kevin worked all weekend 10 am-8pm (which translates to 9am-9pm.) On Sunday night I was ready to go postal. So this morning the three of us got out of the house and stayed out almost all day. It was sweet freedom.
The good news: We got to play, play, play in the snow!
Yes, that is the lid to a plastic box.
The fine art of snow angles
Look at those faces!
The good news: The snow is beginning to melt and life is getting back to normal. The bad news: Snow is in the forecast for Friday and Saturday.
