Weather or not…

The city of Atlanta is shutting down for the weekend. Whoo hoo!

“Why?” you ask, innocent of the wide-spread hysteria that accompanies the mere mention of a snow flake in this Southern burg.



Because it’s raining and the temperature could drop below 30 degrees and we could get flurries.

Sometime after 10 p.m. tonight.

In prospect of this possible weather apocalypse, five hours from now, they closed the public schools around noon. All of the grocery stores have been wiped out of bread, milk and eggs in what must be mass anticipation of a day of French Toast making.

Yes, a mere day because the high tomorrow is forecast to be around 40 degrees and the high on Sunday nearing 50, so doubtful that anything with any potential to ice over will survive past Saturday afternoon.

Unless it’s that bottle of vodka in the freezer, and that might not make it to Sunday anyhow.


Just plain rain.

I could be wrong.Β  I certainly don’t profess to be a master of meteorology.

Just in case, we’re stockpiled with booze, groceries and the makings for a huge breakfast.

My incredibly cool boss (who’s from Chicago and thinks Southerners areΒ  ridiculous when it comes to cold weather) told me and my sales assistant to take off early and “get ahead of any stupidity.”

So I’m at home, curled up with my computer and a glass of wine, waiting to see if we will get a little “wintry mix,” and enjoying my pretend Snow Day.


Hope you are warm and happy wherever you are!

  1. Here I am in Augusta getting my emergency candles ready just-in-case. You never know what the weather map will do between now and tomorrow. I like what you’re doing better tho.

    • Well, the power did just go out. David is so excited. He fired up the gi-normous generator and the house is flooded with light and heat, in the midst of the dark and silent neighborhood. The zombies will find us, for sure.


  2. This is one of the best posts I’ve read in awhile! So true here in TX too. I swear the whole city shut down, and the grocery shelves were about empty…of you guessed it… milk, bread, eggs, and beer! haha …oh, and meat…guess everyone will have a giant BBQ in the snow!

    It’s Sunday, I hope all is well. It must be since my family hasn’t posted a darned thing about the Snowpocalypse 2016 and they’re in GA & TN.
    I laugh when I read this stuff too BUT I remember.
    I remember when I was maybe 6 years old, so real early 70’s, Easter time. Absolutely everything shut down because of barely a dusting of snow! That everything included the Easter Egg hunt the church was supposed to put on. I was NOT a happy camper!
    I can laugh now though because I can drive in snow, rain, pretty much any weather although I will admit that I wish where I am in Canada would shut down when the roads are icy
    I’ve been here 40 years and I can remember everything shutting down ONCE. That was a couple of years ago and only because even the snow plows were sliding off the road, lol.
