Growing up, I always felt like a snowy weather jinx. I wanted to see snow SO badly and being a south Florida baby, that was never going to happen at home. I was in my cousin’s wedding in Buffalo, NY when I was six and had secretly hoped that I would see snow and that my standing in freezing cold weather in a short sleeved dress(at the end of October) for pictures wouldn’t be in vain. It was. The second we got into the airport it started flurrying and by the time we landed at home in Florida, they had received over a foot of snow. This continually happened throughout my life. I’d go visit my Dad in Atlanta and it would snow the day after I left. It rarely failed. I kept on calling myself a weather jinx and my mother tried to reassure me that I was just being ridiculous.
The kicker was in 2007, when I spent Thanksgiving and Christmas in NYC. I was expecting to have snow, I just knew it had to happen. It was New york, it just had to snow. Nope, 60 degrees both days. Are you kidding?
Fast forward to now. We just moved to Charlotte last summer and I was excited to have at least one day of snow at least. Well, then yesterday our local weatherman tweeted that this may be the first Winter without snow, in Charlotte, in 133 years. Seriously? Seriously.
So, if you live in Charlotte and hate the snow, you’re welcome. Perhaps I should consider a career move. If you’re dealing with snow right now and are sick of it, I’m available for travel.
