The Decades Between

It turns out that the ice storm I was so excited about on the 23rd was merely the tip the iceberg. Frozen ground covered in sleet and a bout of wintry weather set the stage for another storm to move through yesterday on the 25th. That storm (the Weather Channel called it Remus) would be the most intense snowstorm that this little subtropical Southern city has seen in well over a decade. The last time I recall such a storm was circa 2000, and the brunt of the snowfall occurred at night. This time, the ground was primed to accumulate and the storm set up to dump some heavy snow all day long. The problem with snow in Shreveport is that flurries aren’t terribly uncommon: it’s accumulation, heavy and consistent snowfall that never happens (or at least takes a decade to happen again). Welp, now it’s over, and I’ll be 40 (and hopefully long-gone from this city) before it snows here again.
