It’s a snow day here in Alabama!! And it came fast and with fury.. Since last night’s weather report predicted we would only get a light dusting, no one expected the frozen mess we have now. It’s beautiful outside, don’t get me wrong. As long as you aren’t in a car on the road. News flash- no one in Alabama knows how to drive in the snow. We don’t have chains, the roads weren’t salted, and everyone (including my husband) who got up and went to work this morning when everything was fine, are now trying to get home (or get to schools and preschools to get their kids) and the roads are a complete disaster. Cars are sliding everywhere, interstate traffic is barely moving, some people are just abandoning their cars and walking somewhere for shelter or to get home. The news is filled with video footage all over town of people trying to help one another push cars along the roads, towing cars out of ditches, and offering their businesses for shelter to those who are stranded and unable to get home. Thank goodness I don’t have to work tomorrow, cause I would have to probably start driving now and spend the night at the hospital. Most the staff at the hospital today will be spending the night and probably working overtime tomorrow. It is a
hot frozen mess. That’s a snow day in dixie for ya 😉
Meanwhile, I’ve been home with the pups kinda enjoying the snow. I woke up and took some pics around the house and then took the dogs across the street to run around the field for a bit. They were loving the snow! I did have to make a small trip to our renter’s house (about half a mile down the road) to take them a spare key. I debated walking, but it’s just too dang cold! The crazy part is as soon as I drove on the roads one way, they were completely re-covered in snow on the trip back. When I opened my car door a small avalanche fell into my driver’s seat! haha. This is just nothing we are used to dealing with here in Alabama.
