Oh goodness… Don’t over or under estimate Mother Nature. Our country has been hit hard this year if you listen to the news and places that don’t see certain types of weather have seen it this year, but I truly wonder how different it is than other years. I mean in 2011 we got 18 inches of snow which is unreal for us, but it happened.
So I dunno. I think I want to be a meteorologist… wrong 90% of the time and still go to a job the next day.
We found out that starting Saturday evening at 6pm through Monday morning at 6am we were under some kind of winter weather advisory. I can’t keep them straight.
My MIL’s water needed fixing (dunno what was wrong with it) so my FIL met hubby and me at my MIL’s house and they worked on her well. (yes we live in the country and we all work off wells :))
I kept claiming this was the calm before the storm. Thursday night you could just feel the weather changing while we were standing outside working on her well.
Friday they said we would get some rain/sleet mix. As I was driving to lunch to meet my parents the rain started. I guess they were more in the sleet but I was more in the rain. See rain/sleet mix.
But come Sunday morning… we finally got the weather. Church never closes and they cancelled. It was crazy. We went to some friends house for lunch and this was the lovely weather.
When we came home this is what our road looked like. I’m fairly certain no one had driven down it in hours.
They actually cancelled school on Monday. So Tuesday headed to class, this was what the roads around the campus looked like. Seriously? It was a sheet of ice… sure why not make inexperienced college students drive in this crap :). It’s funny because all the universities around close down except the one I go to.
So happy first week of March, right? That’s okay, last year in May we got snow so whatever :).
