This is my Snowpocolypse 2013 diary. Enjoy.
I then checked Facebook and saw that friend Melissa, who is in town for an event this weekend, wanted people to go to Gidget’s with her. Other friend Patricia and I ended up there with her! We visited for about an hour and a half before Patricia had to go to work. We had to take horrified pictures first.

I got home and found my sisters doing pretty much nothing. I think the snow day had worn off by around 1 pm.

|At least it feels like Christmas!|
We also do puzzles when it’s cold. Maybe we’ll finish this one by the time the storm is gone!
The show was wonderful, even though the internet infuriated me. People were saying that NBC rewrote a classic and that Carrie Underwood is no Julie Andrews, which is true, but they have no idea that Julie Andrews did not originate Maria. The “new” songs were from the stage show and it followed the script exactly.
Dad begins to doubt my attendance at Thanksmass on Saturday night at Lake Diversion
School was canceled again today, but I still woke up at 7:30. Roads were still icy and workouts were again canceled. I began to watch the American Open weightlifting meet online until we left the house. I saw my former coach Glenn and a girl I used to lift with before I quit.
Then we left and went to United to get a Christmas tree for my great-grandma’s hospital room. She fell and broke her hip the day prior and had surgery today to fix it. We decorated the tree.

Then I went to work.
I was supposed to work concessions at the Nutcracker tonight, but it was canceled due to weather. Instead my family went to see Frozen. It was the second time for Kacie and I, but the first for the rest. It was just as good the second time.
I’m not driving myself to Thanksmas and he won’t take me, even though he is invited. I’m not going. #devastation
There was already a fire when I woke up and the temperature is not supposed to go over 20 today. Sisters have to go to a dance rehearsal for a performance they’re in tonight. I’m still super upset I don’t get to go to Thanksmass tonight because I got my friend the world’s best gift AND it’s Thanksmass. I just can’t miss it. Friends came in from out of town and I don’t get to see them.
I’m on my way to take my sisters to dance when my friend messages me. Thanksmass has been moved into town! It’s going to be at the theatre and I can go now! Whoo hoo!
After dropping my sisters off at dance, dad and I went to the gym to workout. We watched more American Open while we were there.
|It was treacherous getting into the gym. The parking lot and the turf were a solid sheet of ice.|
We then returned home to cook a last minute dish to take to the party tonight. I then went to said party.

So, the Snowpocalypse ended on a much better note. It’s supposed to be above freezing on Sunday, so the roads will start to thaw out. Nearly every church in town is shut down in the morning though.
I went to Thanksmass.
By afternoon on Day 4, roads were melted enough to drive normally and thus concluded Snowpocolypse 2013.
