Don't sneak up behind someone with a hood up!

We were only suppose to have a slight chance of scattered flurries; well, once again the weatherman was wrong (must be nice to be wrong more often than right and still keep your job!). Well, this gal believed the weatherman and was clearly not dressed for the snow that started to fly. She was hopping from foot to foot and not paying attention. This guy came up behind her with his hood up and walking VERY quickly (he was cold!) and scared her pretty good. She nearly fell down. I had taken this picture right before she nearly fell backwards when he startled her.
Within a few minutes the wind was blowing 25-30 mph and the snow was blowing hard; created white out conditions. All in all we only got an inch of snow before it passed through, but it sure made for bad driving conditions and cold temps.


  1. If I got my job wrong tha many times, I would be fired. Must be nice. Poor girl must have been so focused on staying warm that she didn't notice the hooded man :o/ yikes!

  2. Yeah, you never want to sneak up on someone. I had that happen and screamed lol. My friend and the guy looked at me like I was nuts lol
