THREE DAY WEEKEND

I originally titled this post "Snow Day Survival" because Raleigh was predicted to get up to 8 inches of snow Friday night. The big storm was coming and everyone was pumped. We stocked up on food and movies and everything you need so you don't have to leave the house all weekend. The precipitation started around 5 PM...

as rain.

It rained, and rained, and rained, and rained some more. Finally around 3 AM, I woke up and saw ice on the tree outside my window. When I woke up around 8:30. there was a dusting of snow.  Can you say "huge disappointment?" It continued to snow until 1 PM, but we ended up with maybe 1 inch of the 8 we were predicted to get. We made the most of it though! What started as cooking brunch for Harrison, Anthony, Sam, and Adam, turned into 10 people in our tiny apartment. After a brief panic about how much food we stocked up on, 2 loaves of bread, 1 pound of bacon, and 1 carton of eggs turned into 3 loaves of bread, 2 pounds of bacon, and 3 cartons of eggs. Fishes and loaves, y'all. Fishes and loaves.

It was nothing short of a good time with the 10 of us packed in a small kitchen, having breakfast drinks, and stuffing ourselves full of French toast, bacon, and grits. We ventured out to the lone dirt road within the city limits of Raleigh for some good ol' fashioned sledding behind pickup trucks. After that and a brief visit to campus, we were all sufficiently frozen, so we retired inside to play Cards Against Humanity and hang out.

Sunday was spent on the couch, eating, watching Carolina embarrass us in basketball, and doing a whole lot of nothing. Monday, with classes cancelled, Harrison and I ventured to Clayton for a little bit of sledding with Erin. Beforehand, we stopped by Cameron Village to get him a pullover. We ended up with him a pullover, delicious biscuits from Rise (BLT and chicken/pimiento cheese- OMG), and an interview with a news station- we actually made it on TV, too!

The typical NC ice storm turned into a really nice three day weekend with the people I love the most!
