Snow-pocalypse

Y'all, I'm as shocked as you are about that title, but I'm not kidding. I'm currently gearing up for #snowpocalypse2k14 (aka Winter Storm Leon)

I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with your geography or Louisiana history, but the last "serious snowfall" was over nine years ago on Christmas Day, 2004. 

The first time baby Sydney had seen snow or had a snowball fight. 

I feel like everyone is preparing for a lot worse than what this storm will throw at us. My mom went to the store and had to buy almond milk, hamburger buns, and gallons of water because our regular skim milk, wheat loaf, and bottled water were wiped out. It's like everyone is expecting a wintery version of a hurricane. 

Now, I'm definitely not complaining about having the next two days off of school to sleep late and get a head start on required reading, however, I'll be very upset if they take away two days of spring break. (This is only the first full week back from a monthlong break!)

I've decided to stay at my dorm room for this adventure (mostly because I was too lazy to pack up and drive ten minutes to my house) and I'm only worried about serious "ice pellets" downing the power lines. No power = no internet. No internet = no Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, YouTube, or other blogs to read! (it also means no heater, which could be almost as catastrophic) 

I did go to the library last week, and I picked up a new novel to read in case of emergency. And I have my tea and fuzzy socks. I think I'm going to be okay. 

If anything exciting happens (like a campus wide snowball fight or iceskating on the frozen sidewalks), I'll be sure to take pictures and share them! 

How are you preparing for the snow-pocalypse?
Any tips from those of you who are really familiar with snow storms and unexpected vacations?

P.S. I heard this song on the radio today and it instantly made me 100000% ready for summer! What is it about Jack Johnson that just evokes "beachy" vibes?
