It snowed 4 inches today. Most of y'all are gonna laugh, but that pretty much closes stuff down around here. It doesn't happen very often, but it does happen every 2 or 3 years. What was really embarrassing was the reaction that people had even before anything happened. There was a run on bottled water at the grocery stores. Wal-Mart was packed with worried people throwing fits over energy bars and pretzles like they were the last Tickle Me Elmo to be found in creation the weekend before Christmas. Some schools chose, on Thursday, to close on Friday. Even though there was no snow until late Friday afternoon, and the roadways stayed clear until late in the evening. It was like we were facing our own private Katrina. Embarrassing.
Of course, I may experience my own little freak-out tomorrow. I have to leave at o'dark-thirty to catch a plane. I have never flown in the snow before. Lucky me.
I'm going to Huntsville again. For an entire week of middle management training. An entire week. Of middle management training. Its so boring that they couldn't even think of anything snappy to call it. Just Middle Management Training.
And the hotel? The first thing listed on its website under amenities is "Elevator: yes." This is followed by Public Phones and Ice on Every Floor.
Y'all are all jealous. I can feel it.
