It rarely snows in south Louisiana, and when it does, we just have small flurries that melt before they hit the ground. Snow is so rare in this part of the Southern US, that schools shut down and people step outside to look in wonder. The snow came down and it was the most I’ve ever seen in my 35 years. Flights into Baton Rouge have been cancelled, and most businesses are closed. I worked all night and drove home passing by unfortunate drivers who couldn’t quite handle their vehicles. Many were scattered in ditches, others just slid all over the road. I finally made it home, only to find that schools are closed also and all the neighbors were out in the street, laughing as the kids threw snowballs.
