Let it Sneaux

Sneaux. That's how we spell "snow" in south Louisiana. Of course, Louisiana never sees sneaux.

Now that I'm in western North Carolina, I see plenty of sneaux. And there's plenty of it out there this morning--the first sneaux of the season. Fine with me. It's pretty. I got ready for work and got into my Neon and headed to Asheville. Turns out there is a mess of wrecked 18-wheelers on the I-40 and traffic is backed up for 10+ miles. I turned around and came home. Waiting for a co-worker to e-mail me a document I've been working on so I can work on it here. I'm planning to go to work in a couple of hours ... but it's sneauxing really hard. This Louisiana native is not comfortable driving in this stuff. Particularly in a Neon.

I usually don't envy teachers, but I do this morning. All the schools in the county are closed.

If it would only sneaux harder, I might be able to stay home and work from here. I don't want to have to drive in it. It scares me. I am a south-Louisiana-born-cold-weather-scaredy-wuss. Please let me stay home today. I have plenty of work I can do, just as soon as it pops up in my e-mail. I'll probably be more productive here than I ever am at the office.

Let it sneaux! Oh please, let it sneaux some more!

Hello Waterfall! It seems I remember you spending some snowy cold days on the AT a few winters ago! Don't you hate it for those SoBo's out there right now? I am sorry I missed THE birthday party. I am a little laid up with the flu. See you at the SoRuck!

I am trying to send all this snow over the mountain to you.

It's 2019! And now, for my sometime tradition of answering questions about the year, with my paraphrased 2017 answers for comparison. S...
