Have I Been Grounded?
About a week ago, I talked to my brother Dennis about this that, and the other thing. I happened to mention to him that this week, I don't have class on Wednesday so was planning on going back home to Michigan to see my folks. I dunno if he was serious or not, but he said 'well, we're not doing anything next week, so if you wanna come down, that'd be sweet'. (Actually, those weren't his EXACT words because he doesn't talk like that, but you get the picture.) After the offer was put on the table, I mysteriously found myself seriously considering the possibility of going down to visit. Originally, I was thinking of driving down to North Carolina. I've done it before, it's not bad at all. 10 hours in a car is cake, especially with good tunes and some baller coffee flowin' through my veins. But for shits and giggles, I decided to check out some flights to see if there was even the remote possibility of saving the driving and flying down. To my surprise, I found a KILLER deal!! Let's just say that for what it currently costs to fly one way from Buffalo to Charlotte, my round trip ticket costs significantly less. To make a sweet deal even sweeter, I found a coupon code online for $20 off via a discount through 17 magazine. I know what you're thinking, but let me say that the answer is 'NO' to the question 'You read 17 magazine?!' Anyways, with these deals stacking up, I couldn't pass it up.
Fast forward to today. For anyone not living in Hamilton, or the GTA for that matter, let me paint you a picture of what I see out my window: WHITE, WHITE, and more WHITE. And no, it's not a church revival meeting. Snow like you wouldn't believe. According to some sources, they're saying that we should be expecting about 70 cm. of snow by tomorrow, which is roughly 2 feet.
2 FEET OF FRIGGIN' SNOW!!!!!!!!!
And the kicker is I may not know if I'm staying or going until shortly before I do or do not board that plane. So this kicker implies that the only way I'll know is to drive through the snow and hope that things simmer down in time.
I guess time will tell, and so will my next post. Until then, for those who are surrounded by the snow and cold, stay warm and know that you're not alone. And for those who are in a warmer climate...
...I hate you.
