So, in case you live under a bridge (like I often do) and aren’t aware, Snowpocalypse2014 hit Atlanta this week. I’d just like to start off by saying that it’s really not a wonder the entire northern half of the United States makes fun of us poor southerners. We called it Snowpocalypse, for cryin’ out loud. It was two inches of snow!!
Now, don’t take my declaration of Southerners being silly for calling it a Snowpocalypse as taking the situation light-heartedly at all. It wasn’t snow – it was ice. The entire metro-Atlanta area, in which somewhere around 6 million people live, was covered in ice in just a matter of two hours. All of those people were at work and school, and left their jobs and schools all at the exact same time, to head down the exact same highways…ON ICE. Atlanta has some of the worst traffic in the nation in perfect weather, with staggered ‘release’ times from work and school…but releasing 6 million people upon the same skating rink at the same time? It was a disaster- a disaster that caught several of my own family members and left them stranded in the streets overnight.
I, on the other hand, picked up my kids by 11 and was back home at 12:20. It took almost two hours to pick my kids up and get back home, from 4 miles away from the school. We’ve been stuck here ever since. I’ve heard that the roads are finally clearing up, but school is out for the third full day in a row, so we’re staying put unless we run out of almond milk for the toddler.
And there. That’s been my week. Snowpocalypse (ICEpocalypse!)2014.
In other news, I have a worksheet that I’m about to release for blog and newsletter subscribers, am slowly putting together an awesome little community (which I will post more about next week!), and am spending this weekend on Italian, calculus, and bracelet orders.
How has your week been?
