Snow Storm (Snowmageddon) 2011

Well its been a long time since we had a really good snow storm so I guess for all of use southerners we were due. Yep we had a pretty good one, getting about five inches around my house. Everyone was freaking out as they usually do. Going to Wal-Mart and buying up all the bread. I am amazed and the crazies that always over react to events. I mean its not like the snow is never going to melt, and this is not the first time its ever snowed in the great state of Mississippi!

Check out the bread isle at Wal-Mart

This is the first time however that The Weather Channel took lodging in our great town of Grenada, MS to cover theย  winter storm surge. It was pretty cool too.

While this was going on, I was super excited about going hunting in the snow. My brother in law and I went trekking in the snow about 1.3 miles from base camp in a blizzard no doubt and we loved it! I took my other brother in laws dog with me (Jake) and we had ourselves a good ole time.

Before I left out on my hunting trip I set up an older iPhone 3G in my backyard to catch pictures of the falling snow and later I would put to together a time lapse video of it. I think I set it up at 1 pm on Sunday 1-09-11 and told it to stop taking pictures every five seconds at 6 pm on 1-10-11. I used an app called iTimeLapse that I got from the app store, it was only 99 cents.

See it here on YouTube.

Here is how the phone looked while taking the videos.

Oh and about the dog house heaters I wrote about not too long ago… they are doing great as you can see here there is no snow on top of the dog house. They are nice and warm in side. The water on the side of the house has a warmer wrapped around it to keep the water from freezing.

It was cool to see our hurricane veterans huddled up by the interstate in Grenada. ๐Ÿ™‚ Of course, showing the same image of a black jeep ramming a car over AND over AND over. Takes me back to hurricane footage. Family calling in a panic wondering if our house is still standing.

The bread aisle is hysterical. Everyone gets so excited over the snow, they can’t imagine anything other than a complete blizzard-like shut-in. But it’s fun…doesn’t happen too often. I definitely had snow envy. ๐Ÿ™‚
