Snow Day

Yesterday was 60 degrees.

It was a beautiful day…but we knew IT was coming. We were expecting a snow day here in Atlanta, and were really excited about the possibility.

If you could be home, the snow was great. However, many schools did not anticipate how fast this system was moving in. We southerners do not have the infrastructure to deal with icy roads. It got bad quickly. As I type, people are still trying to get home. Many on the roads over 9 hours, just trying to make it home. Thousands of kids never made it out of school today. They are overnighting.

25/365…yes, I’m cheating.

We’ve had a good day filled with fun, snow, and warm food. My husband got on the road just in time to beat the gridlock. He had some struggles and saw accidents…but he made it home before the worst. It’s amazing that two inches of snow could wreak such havoc. It seems silly, but it does. Everything will ice over soon, if not already. Pray for those who are stranded on roads…and for the kids spending the night in schools without the comforts of parents. The school officials blew it. At least our county closed schools last night. We are thankful to be homeschoolers tonight.

Tuesdays Around The World

I know I shared this yesterday in a smaller image, but here it is again in all its glory!  My kids have lived in Atlanta for 5 years and have never eaten at The Varsity.   Apparently, Obama was in Atlanta recently for a day visit and he even ate at The Varsity before my kids.  We had to correct this.

The Varsity is an Atlanta icon in fast food.  It is greasy, but you have to eat there to say you did. And you have to wear the little paper hat; it’s a rule that must not be broken.

My first time eating there was at the wee age of 8.  The grease was a bit much, and I remember getting a little sick.

Fast forward 32 years, and I am eating it for the second time.  I didn’t feel great the next day…but my kids seemed to be ok.  Not sure if my tummy was experiencing a self-fulfilling prophecy, or what.

Still, there are some foods to not miss.  You need the onion rings.  You need a Frosted Orange.  You may need a Tums.  But do visit if you are in Atlanta!
