The Blizzard of 2010

Wednesday, January 6, 2010: The stores were brimming with shoppers as the weather reported that the blizzard of 2010 was near. In true Georgia fashion, schools were already planning on closing early the next day and panic was setting in...

Thursday, January 7, 2010: With the impending blizzard near, and all weather stations alerting the treacherous coming weather, we anticipated staying indoors for days, maybe weeks, by driving around town and meeting my Mom for lunch - I mean seriously, who knew how long we would be stuck in our house once the snow hit?
Around 2:00pm, the first of the snow flakes began to fall. By 5:00pm, we knew we were in trouble:

Friday, January 8, 2010: We awoke to a true, Georgia Blizzard. Schools and businesses were closed statewide.


We decided since the weather was so bad, and no one could leave their homes, that it would be a perfect time to go grocery shopping. So we did.

I emailed our horrific news to my family in Indiana, and here were some of their responses (I think they were really terrified for us):

"That is sooo funny!!!  It started snowing here sometime Wed. night or early Thus. We got 5.5 inches and today it is still snowing a little.  We may get another inch or two.  Crawfordsville school was not canceled."

" funny. We're having a blizzard too...I think it was 4-7"

"Grandma has not been out since 12/24.  Our drive way is treacherous.  I'm sick of it."

"We got 6 or so inches...imagine that!  Your town would lock up and close shop!  Only thing is, your will be gone soon, ours probably won't be gone until March.  Lucky you!"
