Let me back up. Atlanta SHUT DOWN on Sunday when about 8" of snow fell in about 3 hours. We canceled school Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. It was Wednesday at about 4:30 when my Blackberry alerted me that they went ahead and closed Thursday AND Friday as well. Although crazy....this was perfect for me! I had taken two personal days (Thursday and Friday) to go on a cruise for "staff training" for my 4th side job of working for Waters Mill Events Facility. (Yes, I have an awesome boss!) Thanks to the snow, my personal days were converted to FREE snow days!Our plan: leave about 2 A.M. on Thursday morning to drive to Port Canaveral to board the boat. Reality: Atlanta was about to freeze over again for Snowmageddon 2011 part deux. Rusty made the manly call at 4:00 to leave at 4:30. P.M. On Wednesday. Hence the 30 minute frenzy of throwing stuff in a bag.
Back to the "trek". I choose my words wisely. Since our driveway was more fit for a performance of the Ice Capades than a parking lot, we knew we weren't getting our truck out of there or our friend's car up there. We left for the Bahamas in hats, gloves, coats, scarves and boots and TREKKED out of our neighborhood and to the main road to catch our ride. Yes, we were committed employees ready for our staff training. :)
