OOTD: Before the Snow

I don’t know if you’ve seen the news, but my area of North Carolina has about nine inches of snow and ice. Luckily, this outfit was shot the day before yesterday when it was still warm enough to shimmy out of my coat for a second.

Speaking of the weather I want to take a moment to talk about snow in the south. We get a lot of shit from the northerners about how we handle it. In some ways I get it a hundred percent, we are babies about it, nobody hates it more than I do. However when it comes to driving in we’re in different situations than them. We don’t have the number of plows to clear the roads, we don’t have winter tires, my Jeep doesn’t even have 4-wheel drive, and the big one: in the south the weather is so warm that the snow melts some during the day, which means that when we drop back down for the night everything is covered in black ice. We’re driving on uncleared roads in bad cars and on black ice.

So make fun of us for freaking about the snow, we take it a little far, but when it comes to driving in it… I think we have some odds against us.
