Polar Vortex in the South!

Too familiar for comfort!

Too similar for comfort! Picture via.

If you’ve been anywhere on social media, the news, or outside lately, you know that it is COLD. And oh yeah, here in Atlanta we got one of the worst snow storms of our generation! Though it is humorous to look at this picture comparing The Walking Dead intro to the actual picture of people all trying to leave the city, it wasn’t so funny for people stuck on the road!

Now, I realize for those of you in the north, it’s easy to scoff at a couple inches of snow as nothing big. And it’s easy to scoff at people not knowing how to drive in the snow when it’s something that comes almost second nature to those of us who grew up with it.  I know, trust me, I grew up in Idaho, I know.

But here’s the thing that makes what happened a big deal- there’s no way for people to have that experience here. Snow and ice aren’t a thing that happens except for once every couple years. Not so second nature. And cabin fever is SO real after a couple days stuck at home. 

As our city gets back up and running, my heart goes out to those who were stuck out on the road for hours on end and who slept in their cars or in stores because they couldn’t get home. Thank goodness now our roads are getting back to normal and all the children have been reunited with their families.

For those of you up there where this is a normal occurrence- stay safe and warm! I’ve had enough snow to last me a while, hopefully the weather agrees!
