O.T.: 3rd Snow of 2014 in Louisiana
We got our 3rd snow this morning in central Louisiana for 2014. It's so rare for us to get snow and now this makes the 3rd time in a 2 week period. It snowed with big flakes for an hour this morning and then thankfully melted by 1pm which was good so the roads were good to bring kids home from school at the end of the school day today. Our school calendar only has 3 available days for us to miss due to weather, school was not cancelled today, but due to the last 2 snows our kids have missed 4 days of school and will have to make up 1 day at the end of spring, assuming we don't get any more bad weather. Usually we only worry about missing school for hurricanes or the rare ice storm, with all this snow this is really strange weather we are having in 2014 in central Louisiana. I know in the pictures I have posted online lately it does not look like much snow, but we are so not equipped to handle winter weather here, even in our biggest town in central Louisiana, Alexandria, there are no snow plows and very few trucks for deicing bridges - they even had to close some bridges this morning for a short while, which had some teachers a little worried at my son's school cause they have to cross bridges on a major river to get home with their commutes. I am so ready for spring.
Best to you,
