Places unaccustomed to cold and snow have encountered both this year. More than enough for their tastes, I'm sure. It crossed my mind that potentially two-thirds of the country has cabin fever. Wait -- is that cabin fever or spring fever?
Apparently, people are taking their frustration over all that snow out on those piling it up on the side of the road (after having just spent considerable time and energy clearing it out of their own driveways).
I teach people how to be prepared for all sorts of catastrophic events. However, the winter storms that have plagued the South were even too much for the well-trained. My preparedness kit for winter weather consists of matches, Gucci snow boots, and a bottle of red.
Louisianans hardly see snow in the subtropical climate, let alone three snow days within one week. Overjoyed LSU students took to Twitter with the hashtag #SneauxDay to document how they spend their time when school is out.
There was no transportation provided to schoolchildren and I had to walk to school in all types of weather. I wore knee socks with my skirts, but it didn't prevent the bitter cold from invading me as I walked those 15 blocks to junior high.
