so the craziest thing happened today:
of course, by my definition, Alabama snow isn’t true snow. it’s a strange phenomenon that happens on very rare occasions, and it pretty much never sticks. the fat flakes float their way downward from the heavens and quickly accumulate as grey slush on the sidewalks and the roads. no one can handle driving in such conditions, so the whole state goes crazy [apparently our roads are made of different material? true or not true?]. at 2:00 it was still snowing fairly heavily, but by 3:15, when I emerged from Spanish class, the snow was almost all gone and the sun had returned. all of my fellow college students were freaking out and frolicking in the slush…wearing jeans. I understand this is Alabama and people don’t own snow-appropriate clothes, but never ever EVER wear jeans. never. you will freeze.
Alabama is a strange place. that’s really all I have to say.
