Blizzards Should Be Made Of Ice Cream, Not Snow

Got snow?

I do.

You may have heard about the little blizzard that struck the Midwest last week. How could you not hear about it? Meteorologists couldn’t stop talking about it. They used their fancy schmancy weather maps and radar images to tell us that a blizzard was headed our way. But not just any blizzard. Oh no, we were in store for Snowpocalypse, Snowmageddon, SnOMG, Snowtorious B.I.G. Weather reporters had turned into Chicken Little: The sky is falling! The sky is falling! 

Meteorologists in Chicago had predicted snowstorms in the past and had been completely wrong with their predictions. So, I wasn’t convinced that we were actually going to get  20 inches of snow. Especially when the schools declared a snow day before the first few inches of snow even hit the ground. I figured that was a sure sign that the blizzard forecast would be way off.

After the blizzard

 

Huh. The meteorologists were right this time. The sky was falling. Well, the snow was falling. And it kept falling and falling and falling.

Snow as high as the backyard fence

 

What do you do on a snow day? Build a 5 ft rocket!

Blizzard 2011 in a nutshell:

20 inches of snow
50+ mph wind gusts
2 snow days
And no Dairy Queen blizzards because Dairy Queen was closed due to the blizzard
