The Make-it-work-iest thing I saw today.

My husband and I ventured out to the mall to see a movie the other week.

It was a Saturday night and it was lightly snowing. The snow sat maybe 5 flakes deep on the parking lot, so I guess people had trouble seeing the parking spot lines:

I am not even exaggerating. You could barely drive your car down the aisle....and I could still see the yellow lines through the snow!

People seem to think that even a little accumulation means we must all park like crazies!

Am I right, other people who live in places where it snows?

Anyway, as I wove through the lot looking for a place to park, I came upon this car, who's driver clearly got fed up with looking for a spot:

Frankly, I don't blame them.

LMAO! He with the biggest car wins!

In GA, people go crazy when it snows. It's hysterical to watch if you're a "northern transplant" like me!

But scary too!

Oh, they go a little crazy in Idaho too! Being from Minnesota, it surprised me when many businesses and schools closed because of 4" of snow. I think they don't have as many snow plows or something.

But it was sweet how people were so concerned about each other's safety and ability to shovel out.

As soon as the first snowflake falls, it's mayhem until the spring thaw. And we go through it every year! I hope he slid in that spot at high speed and with style.

I live in TX where it only snows occasionally -- so imagine how retarded people act when it's only 2 flakes deep here.

Minnesotans . . . they are certainly a parking space challenged lot. In my town they can't figure out parallel parking or 4-way stops.
