In Charlotte we don't get much snow. In the wise words of Tay Swift- it doesn't snow.. like, ever. But this Saturday it did and it took all us southerners by complete surprise! My sister and I were trying to take my sweet mama out to Nakatos for her birthday and jack frost came and put a big fat wrench in our plans. My mom and I were about 5 minutes from the restaurant when my sister called and said, "Did y'all order a blizzard?!" We didn't believe it was that bad.. I mean after all, this is North Carolina.. but by the time we got to the restaurant it was so bad we couldn't even see two feet in front of us. We all ended up turning around and going home.
On the way home we took the interstate, thinking more traffic=better roads. We were so WRONG. We passed around 10 wrecks in a 10 mile period and almost had one ourselves. We weren't expecting this snow so our roads weren't salted or anything. And add insult to injury.. we southern folk just can't drive in the snow. In our defense, we only get to practice maaaybe once a year.
Needless to say, we were SO happy to be home.
I cannot wait until SPRING!
