Every year, it snows in Richmond at least once. and every year the entire city shuts down. Schools close, banks close, and good luck finding any sign of milk or bread at the grocery store. I also never understood the obsession with milk and bread during a storm. For me its more like chips and wine. but to each their own.
The first day of snow is nice. You get to stay inside and watch it pile up. Stick a ruler out there and watch everyone make predictions.
thats my mom. she's the best.
The second day isn't bad either. By this time the roads are pretty much closed so you stay home and make food and hope their's something good on TV.
The third day, things start to get shaky. You already ate all of the good food and watched the movie you were sad to have missed in the theaters. You also can't go anywhere because you live in Virginia. A state that declares a state of emergency but does virtually nothing to prepare for it. So the roads are shot and you have to improvise having snow day fun for another day. Maybe you clean out your closet or under your bed.
It's day four now and you've had it. Everything about your house and the people inside of it is extremely annoying at this point. You make the decision to venture out into the unknown. Half way down the drive way it starts to feel like an episode of Alaskan Ice Road Truckers.
Anyways, you under estimate your actual ability to drive a car in, you know, normal road conditions so naturally you get stuck and two strong strangers have to help get you and Pri unstuck. sadly they are not worthy so you then walk back home and watch all of "Chelsea Does" on Netflix. It is eye-opening, to say the least. I can already see how some people will think its controversial. I enjoyed it (but I don't recommend it because every time I recommend a show and the someone doesn't like it and it personally offended)
