I’m never more aware that I’m a southern boy than when it snows. I’m pretty into it at first, but I quickly realize that snow only comes with cold weather. That part sucks. If science could figure out a way for it to snow when it’s warm, that’d be swell.
Work on that, Stephen Hawking.
I was born in Connecticut, and if I ever mention that in the winter people seem to respond with an, “Oh well you’re used to this then….” But I’m totally not because I was in diapers longer than I lived in Connecticut. Wait, how long is a kid typically in diapers? Now I’m afraid to tell you when we moved away from Connecticut. Let’s just say it was before I picked up a Northern accent, but early enough that I don’t sound like Foghorn Leghorn.
Ever since I was a kid growing up in South Carolina, snow events and snow days off of school were pretty rare. Snow days are still pretty rare here in Atlanta. And that’s why Atlanta doesn’t own any snow plows, sand, or salt for the roads.
It snowed about 6 inches on Sunday night, and we were snowed in until today. I probably still shouldn’t have gone out today because people here have no idea how to drive in snow. I heard today about a guy who caught his BMW on fire by spinning his tires so much on the ice. Ladies and gentlemen, Atlantans.
So we’ve been hanging out, making lots of great food, making homemade lattes, homemade cookies, and drinking all the good drinks we have. We also walked around next to our house and I took a couple of pictures. I didn’t last long before I was too cold.
Enjoy and stay warm!
Oh one more thing. I took the picture below on the left in September in a park near my house. The other picture is from this storm. I thought it was fun. I miss September though….
