I had prayed the night before for snow. I had even dreamed that night of snow. I woke to get ready for school and mom said look outside… it’s snowing😮
And to the amazement of a then 8 year old boy and just having the dream and praying I was floored. I got dressed and ran out the door.
My sister, my mom and I made a snowman.
But this is Louisiana. Snow doesn’t stay here for long. Next day it was back to school😥
There was another time it snowed growing up, but by then I was out of school and working at a downtown bank. I made it to work. No one else did. Then the president of the bank gave me the company car to go pick everyone up and then take them back home afterwards. That was fun.
One of my fellow employees lived in the hilly part of the “hood”. That’s what is was called…sorry. I got to her house fine. It was getting back up her inclined street that was the fun part. Engine revved up and I floor it. I tried it twice til I found the right spot in the road.
They were all holding on and laughing but we made it to work.
I really don’t remember it snowing anymore until after Erin & Brandon were born. And even then it was let’s hurry and make a snowman before it melts…
It snowed like in 2019. I intentionally got stuck in Shreveport for that one to hang with with friends. Yes, I drove there knowing I would miss work on Monday. But so were they…so why not. I told my boss🤪
Now it’s 2021 and it has snowed twice. Twice! The first one in January happened over the weekend I was at work Monday.
This one that started has not left us yet…
This all started Sunday. Today is Wednesday. This stuff is still here and not going away for a few more days.
Brandon wants another snowball fight. And I’m like sure…when it snows again. You are not hitting me with a ball of sleet. Not gonna happen.
Right now it’s raining which will freeze tonight. Joy.
Hehe, Brandon just called saying all his friends are out of power. Yeah, right! There are no outages as of yet in Rayville.
He just wants the battery pack just in case.
There are wrecks all over the interstate. Lanes were closed yesterday for 5 hours while removing a jackknived 18 wheeler. Could you imagine running out of gas while waiting?
Just about everything here is closed. Though the truck stop is open as is Wendy’s because it’s inside the truck stop. Luckily I have coffee and ramen noodles.
I don’t have the luxury of buying groceries for a week like most can.
This is nuts. It’s not supposed to snow in Louisiana. And IF it does it doesn’t stay and visit. This one is being ornery.
Can you imagine what the birds that flew south for the winter are thinking right now😂😂 I think they are upset too.
I was walking yesterday and looked down at an ant hill. How do those little buggers stay warm? Are they all curled up together in a big huge ant ball four feet below the surface?
Yo! Canada! Your baby got away can you take her back please.
