5 Ways To Know It's Snowing In The South

5 Ways To Know It's Snowing In The South

It's no secret that the south isn't prepared for snow, I mean with our humid climates and sunny and 65 days even in the middle of winter we rarely get the chance to see snow. But when we do see that little snowflake appear on our forecasts there's always a few ways to tell it's snowing in the south.

1. Every store mysteriously runs out of bread and milk

I don't know what is about southerners but every time we here it's going to snow we rush to the store to stock up on the essential items we need before the "blizzard" arrives like the apocalypse arrives.

2. We call everyone we know to let them snow is on the way.

No matter where you go someone is letting you know about the 25% chance of snow that's forecasted and asks if you've gotten your rations for bread and milk sandwiches.

3. Everything shuts down by the second snowflake

Oh, you had work today at 9 a.m. but you just saw three snowflakes? it's canceled, the roads are dangerous. Prepare yourself for the #Snowpocalypse

4. Everyone bundles up like they're in Antartica

When it drops below 55 degrees you absolutely have to wear three pairs of pants and two jackets, it's a rule here in the south.

5. Everyone takes pictures and plays in the snow.

You have to go play in the snow and document every moment because it might be another two years before you see snow again even though you got about 1/16th of an inch of snow.

Here are some pics from a recent snow storm in the south:

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
