The Atlanta weather has forced the city to shut down for nearly a week at this point. Most schools and business have completely closed and the roads have a coating of ice due to overnight freezes. Many people have felt trapped but I have actually enjoyed my time off. Three days in a row in not common for me so it was a nice break.
I got a couple of rooms primed (despite spilling paint on the carpet), baked some muffins, and cookies. Of course I made some french fries, had some soy chicken lathered in my mustard sauce. Made some nice enchiladas with my secret recipe guacamole (it will be in the book), overall I felt good with my time away from the jobby job.
Ashley was stir crazy at her house (as many people in the city were) so I took my Maine winter driving experience across town and picked her up. We had some food and watched a movie. Driving was interesting with very few cars on the road and several abandoned on the side of the road, it felt like I was in Dawn of the Dead.
The snow did make for some unique photo opportunities that are very rare in the Atlanta area. I found a dead bird on my front porch! I am scared of birds, even dead ones, and it took some courage to get rid of it.
