Fellow Atlantans will remember the Great Snowpocalypse of 2011. For three days, the majority of us were trapped inside of our homes while the world outside our windows was blanketed in white. It was beautiful. It was boring.
One thing I will say is that our cable/internet company, Charter Communications, which was often the bane of my existence due to frequent outages, never caved under the pressure of snow and ice on the lines. Our cable never flickered. There was not a single blip in our internet service. The problem was that after three days, we were all sick of looking at each other and wanted out. The bigger problem? Our steep driveway, which forms a 25 degree angle. No way in hell could any car safely make it down our ice-coated drive.
Eventually, though, came the thaw. There was slush everywhere, the likes of which I haven’t seen since living in Alaska, but we were free! I’ve only seen light flurries since then. Now they’re saying we could be in for another Snowpocalypse. Am I the only one kind of looking forward to it?
