They have been predicting it all week, snow is coming to Atlanta! Sound the alarm, or better yet...make that mad dash to the grocery store for milk and bread. Ok, gotta be honest...having grown up in the north (NY) and also being married to someone from the north (MI), we don't get it. Salt for the sidewalk/driveway, firewood, water...get it!!! Milk and bread, not so much.
This is pretty much what every grocery store in Atlanta looks like right now, or did last night. This is the plus side of being gluten free AND dairy free, not panicking because we can't eat it. A girlfriend joked that she wondered how many would make the switch because it's all that is still available! LOL
And, this pretty much sums up what drivers down here look like when that first snowflake falls. I am thankful that this go round they are closing or calling schools early and most are heeding the warning to stay home. We DO NOT, I repeat, we DO NOT need a repeat of Snowpocalypse here in Atlanta. My daughter was stuck in her truck for 7 and a half hours. Mind you, she had no problem driving in it as she had her Hummer at the time. It was all the other crazy people and trucks blocking the roadway, causing the problems. She couldn't navigate around them. My sweet friend Amanda's, Dixie Delights, husband was stuck in his car for 24 hours people. He eventually walked the rest of the way home. It was INSANE and scary.
I pray all heed the warnings and STAY HOME.
This pretty much sums it up.
To all my fellow Atlanta/Georgia bloggers and friends, stay safe and warm! To our Northern friends, we don't blame you for your uncontrollable laughter at our expense.
To Northside Hospital, Atlanta's "baby factory", consider yourself warned...October 2017 is going to be a busy month ;-)
