So as a North Carolina Native, it’s pretty safe to say that I love, appreciate, and accept the fact that this state has the weirdest weather. Â We have summer-like weather in January, where I have the opportunity to wear shorts and flip flops like it’s summer time.. and then we get to real winter weather just two weeks later. Â And you know what? Â The forecast says it’s going to be 70Ëš tomorrow!
Anyways, we had a bit of snow, freezing rain, and sleet on Friday. Â It was fun having a workspace at the office where I can see what’s going on outside.. but it was completely distracting seeing all these huge snowflakes falling in the parking lot! Â Unfortunately, it quickly turned from pretty flakes into gross freezing rain. Â Not fun. Â Fortunately, I had the opportunity to leave at lunchtime and work from home for the rest of the day so I wouldn’t get stuck at the office. Â It made for a fun afternoon of working from home in my jammies, butÂ MAN has it been cold! Â I braved the slick conditions to go out around the yard at my parents’ house to take pictures of the ice.. which was interesting because it wasn’t until about noon when I finally got outside, and by then all of the melting was very Â much underway. Â It was still fun! Â But thank goodness for warm socks and a fireplace once I got back inside. Â 🙂
I enjoyed our little snippet of winter weather! Â Now it’s time to warm up so I can actually enjoy the outdoors again. Â Winter is definitely not my season!
