Our First Real Snow


6 comments

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.


xoxo,

  1. Our schools would definitely be open! Roads get salted ahead of time here to keep the snow from being slippery. Snowdays are fun though, aren't they? Good luck with tomorrow's forecast. We may get up to 5 inches tonight but that it nothing to us, just a pain in the butt!

  4. I don't know much (or anything at all!) about it but I guess the best way to enjoy snow is staying warm at home. Time for pampering yourself and catching up!

  6. Glad you got to experience a little snow and got caught up on school work. Your mom sounds so sweet. The meal she cooked looks delicious and I bet tasted even better the next day!
