We Did Survive

Well ladies and gentlemen, you'll be happy to know that the population of Pennsylvania hasn't died off in the apocalyptic snow storm that our insane news media predicted.  We're all very much alive with a grand total of...
......wait..'s amazing...
.....and record breaking. 2 1/2 FREAKING FEET.  Was it worth the mass panic people?

Needless to say, I couldn't get out of our driveway and the roads were unploughed so I had to get a ride to work.  XD It's so weird considering I've been driving myself to work the last two years.  First off, there was NO ONE on the road. And as I walk into the supermarket, I find out it's only me on cashier and 4 other baggers.  I rang up 26 people in the span of 5 hours...on a saturday.  The rest of the time I watched the snow with everyone else, laughed at the 5 accidents in the parking lot because people should have listened to the news and stayed home, and enjoy counting how many people called out of work.  Our managers were happy that the rest of us showed up so they bought us a HUUUGE lunch.  Oh and I got to listen to all the customers bitch to me why we don't have anymore milk, bread, or eggs.  Don't we know that they NEED 6 gallons of milk to make it through the weekend?

8D But I have tommorrow off so I plan to scale the giant 10 foot mound of snow in the bank parking lot behind my house because I'm 19 years old and allowed to act like a giddy 5 year old now and then!  Oh and I promised :iconthesammers: and :iconkujiirum: pictures of my corgis trying to run through the snow.  1 foot dogs vs 2 1/2 feet of snow = awesomeness.

For those who got snow, go outside and enjoy it when you get the chance.  Throw snowballs at your neighbors and be a kid again.  And for everyone else, just stand in your freezer and pretend with us!  I'm off to download me some hunting games!!

Alway enjoy your entertaining journals. Have fun in the snow. I have a 36 hour shift at work, and what little we did get i'm sure will be melted when i get out of here. Lol

The news reporter on Australian TV called it "the biggest dump in 100 years"... I had a bit of a giggle, because I'm 22 and allowed to be immature like that. XP Teeheehee!

lol, the media frenzy here was really funny ^_^ We got about a half inch of sleet before it even started sticking as snow but I think we ended up with about the same amount. I lost power at my house for the weekend when a tree took out the main server for my area. Lots of boiling snow so we could use the bathroom/wash dishes and shoveling the driveway -_- not so fun. Watching the dogs try to run through it was hilarious though :XD: and school has been cancelled for two school days in a row! amazing when that happens. I have heard its supposed to snow here again on tues/wed so that should be interesting.

OMIGOSH! XD I wne tout in the snow today (imma in PA too) and I went sledding down this straight down hill, and I didnt notice it until it was too late. TT.TT There was a jump at the bottom of the hill on the path, and I went off it, and came down with a CRASH and landed on my tail bone on the gravel ...owww.... my butt hurts now TT.TT and then, my friend ~immortaldragon27 laughed at me, so I told her to do it :3 and she bruised her tailbone to XD :evillaugh: and the neighbors and their kids just starred at me out the window O.o ....

It's a shame your panicked population survived. D:
Aliuh Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2010
I wish it would snow that much here. :crying:
Taxtm Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2010   Digital Artist
lol Man, that actually sounds like a fun day at work! Glad to hear y'all got some good snowfall for enjoying when you get off. Now, if we could get that here more often... :P
Mecha-maniac Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2010
You have Corgi, you say?! Yes! You should share the photos with everyone on the interwebs! Corgis in snow are so funny; ours was being very dainty about it.
And hunting games are pretty fun, and hopefully their existence has kept some people from ACTUALLY hunting (And tresspassing while hunting... And threatening to shoot my Mom and then getting arrested by my Dad while hunting...) But I think I prefer the zombie-style 'Hunting games'. HEADSHOT!

Bahaha, yes! I'm over in Ohio right on the state line to Pennsylvania, and we have almost two feet on the ground. CB Now, growing up in Alabama, we used to get maybe two INCHES once a year. For half a day.

I'm so friggin ecstatic. LOLOLOL Like a kid that just discovered candy.
summerstar01 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2010
There is a crapload of snow in my backyard :XD:

About the same feet at yours. (lol that doesnt sound right...)
I did'nt know you were into hunting games. :ninja:
TahkiBK Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2010
XD Nice. And yeah, despite me being a bitch against people who hunt, I have a thing for hunting games. I'm a gaming hypocrite lol. Can't began to name the hours spent playing against people on the hunting game at college.
summerstar01 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2010
Shooting deer? lol.

I hate hunters yet sometimes they keep a population in balance. But when its in gaming I wanna shoot everywhere :D I bet you play for more than 24 hours max, then you look like a zombie staying up for a day or two. :rofl:
TahkiBK Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2010
8D Yep and I was the god at the Gemsbok hunting part.
Meh, I don't mind if it's for population control or if it's used to eat. My uncle hunts bears, deer, and boar but uses everything so I don't mind. I'm waiting on a bear skull from him lol.

The hunting games make me actually be patience with my shots. I'm usually trigger happy. XD And I've done the all night marathon with Bayonetta. I just crawled up from the basement at 7am, said morning to my dad, and crawled upstairs like a zombie to sleep.
summerstar01 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2010
wow first time hearing someone who hunts more than one animal. Its actually rather rare. I never seen a bear skull, only on pictures and hunting personally :O

Yeah probably when you drink soda with 12 tsp of sugar you go nuts and shoot everywhere :XD: Yeah that happens to me alot with games, even without sugar, I still get super Hype. Bayonetta is a good game, I might aswell play it! It seems like a nice game to play.
