The Historic Storm of 2011

Are you in the path of the Snowpocalypse/Snowmageddon/SnOMG/Snowlocaust/The Historic Storm of 2011?

If so, did you fight the crowds to go buy some milk, bread, and eggs with the rest of the midwest today?

{An actual picture from a grocery store in Indiana, taken from Facebook. The line to check out is throughout the aisles of the store. The milk is gone. The best thing I’ve seen lately.}

I find it quite entertaining watching and listening to everyone panic about the impending storm.  I know it could potentially be serious with the ice and all, but I also know that people in the mid-west tend to overreact when it comes to winter weather.  In all seriousness, I hope that everyone stays warm and safe during this storm.

I guess this time the reactions are a little more appropriate since we are under a Winter Storm Warning and more notably, a BLIZZARD WARNING.

After all, this is Big News for this part of Missouri.  I’m LOVING all the hype and potential for 20 inches of snow.  I just hope it doesn’t miss us because in my Small Town, we are always barely on either side of the line.

If this storm fails to live up to its predictions, I will be very disappointed!  I would love to have a campus-wide snow/ice day, as it NEVER gets called off for weather.  It’s already looking good since the Chancellor sent out an email stating that they will let us know by 6 AM tomorrow morning if we need to risk our lives to get to class!  After all, all the rain we had today is going to freeze tonight.  Yikes!

I’m on the edge of my seat waiting for this storm to hit…  brace yourself!  :)

P.S. – A little humor from The Onion.  But in all honesty, it’s not that big of an exaggeration.

    I think all this drama is… too dramatic! But my university cancelled PREstorm, which is unheard of, and Dan’s government office is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday, so I am not going to complain! I’ll just tune out the excessive adjectives and tag lines and get ready to enjoy being snowed in!

      It is a bit dramatic and usually I find it annoying. But this time I found it funny! :) That is awesome – I hope you enjoy your snow days together!
