I Wished For It… So What If It Is AYear Late?

Perhaps you remember all my posts last year about how I wished it would just snow already. It gets cold here, where it could snow. However it rarely ever does. Maybe that is a good thing because a little snow in the south makes people crazy and shuts everything down. No exaggeration there.

Much of the nation is in winter weather or cold/freeze advisories this week. Alabama is not excluded. In fact – we’re even getting snow today!

We’re having snow flurries right now where I live. I’m excited. The weather people are saying that we are going to get 1 to 3 inches of snow!

Not only do I love snow, but now it is also going to get me a free day or two out of work. I live on a very long, curvy, mountainy road along a river. It isn’t the best road in normal weather, so add in snow and ice and well nobody should be driving on it. Plus, our normal roads even aren’t equipped to handle snow/ice. Therefore… I can’t get into work.

Hazardous driving conditions don’t make for pizza delivery. I think our store will either shutdown (not likely) or go to carryout only during this weather. Honestly though, if someone wants delivery they are insane. If they wouldn’t drive in a certain weather type they should never call and ask someone else to do so either.

On other news, I was able to squeeze into another class this semester. Now I’ll be taking psychology and biology. I hope that I am able to get A’s in both. I’m going to study really hard. My job also is cool with the new hours change for me and days of availability so that is a relief too.

I’ll post pictures of the snow and stuff later today or tomorrow – assuming we don’t lose power or anything (::knocks on wood::).

I see that you have England listed as one of your interests! Maybe you would enjoy my new blog:


As often as possible I will post photographs of glorious vistas, charming close-ups, and interesting tidbits of life in Great Britain for the pleasure of Anglophiles everywhere!

The snow is causing major problems over here in the UK!

It is ok for the first couple of days but then it gets boring especially when you need to drive in it - not fun!!!!!

Hope it doesn't get too bad for you so at least you can enjoy it without worrying about travelling anywhere.

Hope you enjoy the snow! We still deliver in snow up here. I wish that the poor drivers didnt have too. But hey its new england and its second nature (to some) to drive in the snow! (lol)

We can trade places when a blizzard comes! I'd be more than happy to head to Alabama without snow! hehehe.

I'm in so many ways not jealous, hahahaha.

Glad you are excited! We were suppose to get it but didn't. I was so glad! After that 7" last month, I'm done. I'm ready for spring!
