Snow Love!

Yesterday, Charlotte experienced some snow showers and it was a little shocking for these poor Southerners! I loved it and I just wished I had been able to cuddle up with Christian and Zuko and watch movies.

It did get me thinking about my favorite snow memories and I wanted to share my favorite.  But, then multiple memories came up and I couldn't decide which was my favorite! So I'm just picking a random one and you'll most likely hear more throughout the winter ;)

In Boone, we don't get too many snow days since the town is fully prepared with plows and salt all the time, but when we do, we take full advantage of them. I would spend every winter checking my e-mails incessantly waiting for the "CLASS IS CANCELLED FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE DAY" e-mails. Many times, App would try to go to class and then after the first few, realize it just wasn't safe. OR they really liked to cancel every class before noon and most of my classes started at noon.

So, when we got snow days we took full advantage of them! My first winter in Boone was pretty brutal. They ended up having to cancel finals/put them online and send everyone home early because the blizzards were so bad.

When the snow first started and our first day of class was cancelled, I was sitting in my PJs, drinking hot chocolate and watching a movie when Christian calls asking if I want to do donuts in the Wal-mart parking lot... I told him to pick me up after the donuts.

We headed over to a friend's apartment near campus and the entire rugby team was there. Then, there was a lot of beer pong! After everyone had played quite a few rounds  and most of our special drinks were gone, a lot of people decided that sledding would be a good idea at that point in the day... I opted out because I knew it wouldn't end well for me at all.

After a ridiculously fun snow day with friends, Christian and I spent the rest of the night snuggled on the couch and getting to bed early because you just never know if you're going to actually get two snow days in a row! Spoiler alert: We didn't! 

Every single snow brings back amazing memories for me. I love winter and I love everything involved with it. Snow, hot chocolate, cuddling, Christmas movies, etc. Christian and I started dating in October, but our relationship grew during the winter months. The first snow of every year makes me giddy like a little girl.

So don't be surprised if you see me tweeting all the time about how much I miss Boone and the snow all winter ;)

Ohhh what a good idea for a post!! The 4 years I was there Tech only officially closed once and it was at 4pm, luckily I did get to miss one class! I love playing in the snow but I don't like it when I have to drive to work!!
