2016 has certainly started quite interestingly. I didn’t do anything out of the ordinary to ring the new year in but still within its first 24 days its had its adventures. Until 2 days ago, I would have said that going to Nashville, Tennessee was the most exciting thing that has happened thus far. (Don’t worry, you’ll hear more about that later!)
But that was before Jonas. Who’s Jonas, you ask? Well unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last week, you’ve heard of Jonas. And if you have been living under a rock, it’s probably covered with inches (or maybe feet, depending on where said rock is) of snow.
That’s right. We’ve only made it 3 weeks in 2016 and we’ve been hit with our first major snowstorm/blizzard. The snow started on falling on Friday at about 10 AM here in Richmond, almost bringing with it an anxiety attack on how I was going to get home from work (you know my feelings on snow) and didn’t stop falling until late Saturday evening. I measured at last 8 inches at some places in my backyard, where my car seems to be stranded for quite some time, but there were definitely places in the Richmond/Central Virginia area that got more than a foot of snow. NBC 12 News is reporting 12-14 inches for my neighborhood.
The inches of snow aren’t the only numbers from this storm I’ve been tracking. Since Friday when I got home from work, I’ve only consumed 2 bottles of wine and watched approximately 20 episodes of Gilmore Girls on Netflix. Living alone and only having left the house once in two days, I have a severe case of cabin fever and I am in desperate need of human interaction.
For those of you have that were lucky enough to miss out on Jonas or want to see it from my perspective, please enjoy these photos.
Long Story Short: 2016 started with a major snowstorm. I’m looking forward to warmer weather.
