1.) All the crazy people run to the store and stock up on bread and milk and there is none to be found.
2.) A lot of us ignore the meteorologists because they are seldom correct.
Well, the people who fall into the first category are the smart ones this time. Everyone even the school officials missed the boat this time. We had been out of school a few days because of extreme cold temperatures, which in my opinion was ridiculous. I mean what do the kids in the North do??? Do they not go to school when it is freezing or below...I doubt it. Walking from the toasty car to the toasty warm school is really not going to hurt them! Anyway, it was another cold day and they had called for a dusting in Birmingham, maybe some flurries. I thought nothing about it...until
A friend of mine and I were walking the morning of the snow apocalypse. It started to flurry when we were walking, not a big deal. However, half way through are walk the snow was really starting to stick to the ground. ( I know, why were we walking in the snow??? I take my exercise when I can get it.) We both kept looking at our phones and wondering why on earth had we not received that automated phone call stating school was being dismissed early??? Very strange considering a little cold weather had shut down schools a few days before.
I have never been happier in the past seven years to have a golf cart then I did during this crazy winter weather! The golf cart has those huge off road tires that will go through anything and snow was not an issue. In fact, it is how we got around everywhere for the next two days. It was also our entertainment...sledding behind a golf cart...tons of FUN!
Brian was up in Tennessee missing out on all the fun...little did he know it would happen again two weeks later.
