Sunday night we got our annual icepocalypse. So naturally Monday morning the city of Memphis shut down. There are many reasons I love living in the South, but the fact that 2 inches of ice shuts down the city makes me all kinds of happy. We get to stay home and snuggle and be grateful we don’t live in Boston. 😉
Of course it’s only ever the first day. Today is just as icy as yesterday and yet parts of Memphis are back up and running (not schools, but most people are returning to work today). The low tomorrow is 1 degree (yes, DEGREE. Not degrees. Because it’s just ONE. Brrr!) which means that the ice definitely won’t be melting any time soon and the roads will continue to be a bit treacherous. But kids will return to school and the city will come back to life.
So there is just something so magical about that very first winter storm day every year. Because we always get to stay home and play. 🙂
We were using a remote & tripod to take these photos and Christopher was in charge of the remote. He kept saying silly things to make me laugh and this was one of those random shots where he caught a genuine smile (you can see it in my eyes).
And this is our poor pup attempting to walk on the ice in our backyard. 😉
We had a delightful day yesterday. Christopher is in busy season at work so he ended up having to work from home for part of the day, but it was just still so nice to have him sitting 10 feet away. And we had fun snuggling together inside where it’s warm while watching the sleet/ice/snow fall. 🙂
