In today’s edition of Off-Topic Tuesday, I want to talk to you about something that you probably had no clue about: it’s actually snowing/icy in certain places across the United States. Shocking, right? I’m sure you’ve seen NOTHING about this on the news, your Facebook, television, and certainly NO ONE is talking about it in grocery stores or while at work.
Okay, in case you can’t tell, I’ve noticed that people cannot stop talking about the weather. Specifically, chances of snow. And heck, here I am, talking about it! Will it ever end?
I feel like mentioning that my husband and I were supposed to make the two-hour trek south today to watch the Nashville Predators hockey team play at home. But since we’ve gotten 7-8″ in our town, and most of Tennessee is under ice storm/state of emergency, we decided to resell the tickets and our butts are staying home. With the rest of us.
Although not being able to leave the house is hard on a go-go-go person like myself (even a few hours at home makes me restless), I’ve been making the best of it. Snow ice cream, hot chocolate, movies, reading, writing, spaghetti, pancakes…it hasn’t been so bad, friends!
So if you’re one of the people whining or complaining or groaning about the snow, just know this: I understand the frustration. I wanted to go to that hockey game (seats right behind the penalty box, people, C’MON). And yes, my beloved Gulf Shores annual vacation could NOT seem farther away right now. But think about the fact that you’re alive, and you have a better chance of staying that way if you don’t try to drive on a sheet of ice.
So try to find the beauty in this snowpocalypse – hot summer days full of back sweat and runny eyeliner will be here soon enough…and then, maybe, you’ll look back at your snowed-in days with a little fondness, right?
Or maybe not. But either way, there’s beauty in everything. Even insanely huge amounts of snow and cancelled Nashville trips. (SUCH GOOD SEATS.) If you’re also enduring these weather conditions, stay warm and safe! And if you’re not…well, don’t rub it in.
