We woke up Tuesday morning to find the white fluffy snow had been covered in a sheet of ice. So again there was a snow day! And due to refreezing issues there's a snow day again today!! I'm loving the fact that the south is not equipped with equipment for this kind of weather. Who doesn't want some unexpected days off of work to lay around and relax! I'm not complaining!
Growing up as a kid in Wisconsin the chances of a snow day were slim to none. My last snow day occurred when i was in grade school and I think it only happened because we also had bad ice that froze the pipes at my school. Every time it snowed I would anxiously await and hope for a snow day. So these past few days have been exciting for me. Plus mom got to stay an extra day and we were able to spend more time together. she is supposed to leave this morning but we will see the status of her flight. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's cancelled again
And I hope I didn't offend the southerners out there. I obviously realize the town doesn't have snow plows and salt trucks like in Wisconsin and Thats why the town closes down. I'm happy it did. We may be used to snow in Wisconsin but when it snows we don't have special vehicles or snow tires or chains on our cars. We drive the same cars y'all have down here. We just obviously are more accustomed to driving in this kind of weather. And 35 degrees in Wisconsin is warm. Here it's cold! It's crazy the differences in other parts of the country. That's one thing I love about being an army wife. You get to experience different areas and climates.
regardless of where your from the roads are very icy here in my part of town. There were 137 car accidents in town yesterday alone. So please if you have to drive, drive slowly, don't slam on the brakes even if you lose control of the car, pump them instead and steer the car in the direction your spinning in. Although I'm a Wisconsinite at heart, I haven't lived there for almost two years and have not driven myself in snowy weather in that amount of time so common sense for me is to stay off the roads. So again I'm going to take full advantage of these snow days and relax at home. I'm loving living in the south where this weather is unheard of for the most part. Makes me appreciate the snow and my days off of work even more!
Enjoy the snow everyone. Today I went and dropped mom
Off at the airport only to head back an hour later to pick her up. Her flight was cancelled and she stuck here until Friday!! Yay for me. More time with mom. Have I mentioned how much I love snow in the south!
