Our First Real Snow
Mr. Weatherman said it was supposed to snow on Tuesday morning, but that it wasn't going to accumulate. I got up to go to work as usual, but when I went to start my car, I noticed that it was snowing and that it was accumulating. I know for those not living in NC it seems strange to wonder if you're going to work over minor snow flurries, but it is our situation. I wondered why I hadn't received a call to indicate what our status was. That's when I realized that my cell phone's battery had died in the night. I charge it, turned it on, and realized that I did receive a call around 6 A.M. telling me that we were on a 2-hr delay. No need to go back to bed now. My Mom reiterated that, so I decided to start working on a grad school assignment.
Not long after I had my cup of hot cocoa and a baked grilled cheese sandwich, did I get another call indicating that school was closed for everybody.
I tried to stay up and read all those long articles glaring back at me, but sooner rather than later, I realized that I was nose-deep in articles, but not because of reading them, but due to sleeping on them!
After a long nap, I got up, feeling much more rejuvenated and decided to really be productive on my (other) school work.
In the meantime, my Mom cooked one of those down-South-being-really-resourceful meals. The dish doesn't have a name, but just know she worked wonders with a pack of chicken backs and some noodles. And yes, my friends, it was good! The things this woman can do...
I don't know the remaining schedule, but just know that Mr. Weatherman said it was really supposed to snow Wednesday night. We shall see. Until then, I'm catching up on work. Going out in the elements isn't necessary.
