Snowy Days

The talk of North Carolina last week was of Winter Storm "Pax," and to say we got some snow would be an understatement. There were forecasts stating that my area could get anywhere from 4 inches to a foot, and I thought that even 4 inches was going to be quite the bit of snow (and the most probable amount).

By the time the storm had come and gone, we received around a foot, which was crazy! I left work around lunchtime on Wednesday, stopped to pick up some lunch, and in that short amount of time, the snow was starting to accumulate. Already, cars were starting to slide around a little bit, so I was glad to be safe and sound at home. 

SW, Soph, and I ventured out into the snow for after it started to accumulate, and that evening, walked over to Fox and Hound, which stayed open despite the snow, for dinner and drinks -- the perks of being able to walk! 

The next day was very similar -- and though it was nice to have a snow day, I wanted to eat about everything in sight (which included cinnamon rolls and cupcakes). Friday, it was back to work, and before the storm, I had decided to park on the street instead of up on the open-air parking deck, thinking that would be the best decision. Well, wrong. The streets were plowed, but that left lots of hardened snow around my car in addition to what had accumulated. Thank goodness for the two gentlemen who helped me dig my car out, but so much for looking cute for work...

I've loved this exciting snowy weather, but it's safe to say, I'll be happy for spring time, maxi dresses, and sandals.
