I'm snowed in. Okay, I'm not actually snowed in. I live in the city which means my roads are probably in the best shape but I'm pretending that I can't leave my house due to the obnoxious amount of slush covering the roads. Plus, as soon as the sun goes down everything is going to start freezing. So I like to pretend that I'm stuck at home with endless cups of coffee, Harry Potter (since I just jumped on that bandwagon), and my beautiful bloglovin feed.
Really the only thing I like about snow is that it gives me a valid reason for staying couped up in my house all day. When I spent those five awful months of college in New York I dealt with enough snow for a lifetime. Playing football with half the dorm in almost a foot of snow is loads of fun, but walking to class while being pelted in the face with snow is not my idea of a good time. Being born and raised in North Carolina, I was amazed when the snow never melted.
Of course all the schools and daycares are closed today, but many places remain open including the restaurant I work at. I know the world can't stop just because of some snow but can't we all just take a breather? The roads are shitty, southerners (including myself) don't know how to drive in this shit, and how much money are these businesses actually making?
Personally I think people should be forced to take a mandatory snow day. Go play outside in the snow with your kids or friends, then cuddle up with a good movie and some hot chocolate. Turn on the fireplace and snuggle up with your favorite blanket and a good book. Consider it a mental health day.
Hey, I'm just saying maybe y'all should make me governer.. I'd shut down the state for any amount of snow over 3 inches.
