“We dodged a bullet!”
Those were the first words my dad said to me as soon as he opened his eyes and turned the TV on to check the weather. I myself woke up to a bit of disappointment becasue I was really hoping for a foot of snow. It’s okay though, we still got some time. It’s only January, this isn’t going to be the first snow storm of the year.
The worst part of the storm headed down south of us dropping more than a foot of snow on the southern counties of Kentucky. Here in Louisville we got just less than an inch which was the sad part for me. I guess I used the law of attraction against me… lol.
The other day while I was listening to NPR as I drove home from school, they were doing an interview with snow plow drivers up in New York or Baltimore (Sorry I can’t remember). One driver said that if the snow is just as bad as it was last year he was going to quit his job, leaving the truck on the side of the road running. Thats pretty bold if you ask me but hell, I feel his pain since I’m a deicer at UPS.
To be honest though, I was really hoping for a lot of snow. The eastern states are getting a blizzard while I’m here gazing out the window wishing that yesterday’s snow was covered again. Oh well, guess I’ll just wait until the next storm, let’s cross fingers guys!

Well I have been keeping up with the weather as usual and this cold spell that we are entering is no joke. The temperatures are dropping well below zero!
I asked my dad the other day if he wanted me to salt the driveway because I would much rather not shovel 3 feet of snow out of the driveway. He told me no, which really has my nerves itching because there is supposed to be a “cold snap” which is going to freeze the rain that has been falling all day. The snow is practically on its way. I’m pretty sure by the time I am finished with this post I’ll start seeing flurries fall. Then I’ll watch those flurries turn into huge snow flakes.
I remember last year how I was really excited for this bad winter. I heard from several people that it was going to be bad but I didn’t know that the temperatures were going to drop like they are going to tonight. The wind chill is supposed to be around -30. This worries me because I am part of UPS’s deice crew and if I end up going into the bucket to spray deice fluid on planes, I will certainly freeze my ass off.
They always say be careful of what you wish for; I wished for a lot of snow and hell, the whole entire east coast its getting a HUGE snow storm.
I wonder if this will be like the snow storm of 94?
ps: I’ll be blogging photos of the winter wonderland later tonight!
