#SnOMG

If you've tuned in to the news the last few days, you've probably heard all about the situation in Atlanta. I gotta tell you, Tuesday was one of the worst days I've had in a very, very long time. Some are referring to it as Snowpocalypse others are coining it SnowJam 2014 or Snowmageddon. Regardless of what you call it, it was a NIGHTMARE!

I took a client to lunch on Tuesday at noon just five miles from my house. We had a delightful lunch, joked about the winter weather and went our separate ways. Little did I know it would take me five grueling, stressful and downright miserable hours to get home. Thankfully, I made it safely, but others had it much, much worse. My sweet husband was stuck in his car for 11.5 hours. He was running low on gas and his cellphone was dying. After a slipping and sliding most of the way home at a snail's pace, he met his match with the last hill. He resorted to abandoning his car and walking the last three miles home. I hadn't heard from him since 8pm and by 11pm, I was panicking. Finally, at 1am, he walked through our door and I've never been happier to see his face! We spent the next few hours thanking GOD and all those that prayed for us. I'm sad to say ATL failed it's people this time. School children were stranded at schools for two nights, some stuck on school buses for more than 14 hours. Other commuters were still on the road 24 hours later. Unbelievable. Here's hoping ATL can get it's act together because something tells me, this won't be the last winter storm we see.

Now for a little fashion...since ATL is paralyzed and on lockdown, what's a girl to do but a little online shopping? The first place I started, warm coats. Heavy coats aren't something that's typically in a Southerner's closet but after the last 48 hours, I'm in search of a Parka. Here are a few I'm eying...

Enjoy your Friday Eve, friends!
