30 January 2014

I interrupt this blogging hiatus to bring you...

We survived Snowmageddon 2014! And you know what? We had a blast! 
(you thought I was going to say I'm pregnant didn't you? haha)

It was crazy how fast and hard the snow came. We were not expecting it at all. Which led to all the traffic and congestion and horrible-ness that happened in Atlanta. I know most people are going to say that "yes, you knew," but here where I live, we didn't get included in the warning until after the first snow flakes started falling. Big surprise to us!

It was a mess. But a beautiful mess. So many people helping others. It was a beautiful thing to see all those people helping each other out. Teachers and principals sleeping at their schools with students and keeping spirits up. People going back out with food and water to help those who were stranded in their cars. People opening up their homes and stores. It was amazing to see. It was also chaos. My mom was stuck at her school until after 11 and my dad had to walk home. Thankfully, all we had to do Tuesday was in the morning, so we were home by a little after noon. It had been snowing for noon hours by then and there was already icy spots on the road (I know, I hit one). 

But we are safe and we are warm and we had fun playing in Bug's first snow. There's still some out there, but it's starting to melt. I'm praying that the refreeze tonight isn't too bad, but I'm not getting my hopes up. The hubs went back to work tonight and was out and about and said that the road outside our neighborhood was still pretty bad.

I hope everyone else out there is doing well and weathering this storm and staying warm!

I hope to resume blogging on a "normal" basis Monday. It all depends on Bug's sleeping habits. I'm hoping my good sleeper comes back!
