The snow kept falling and falling. Schools let out early. Theater performances were canceled. Saturday’s high school football state championship games at Mercedes-Benz Stadium were postponed.
And are you ready for this? A local author was forced to cancel her book signing for her book about snow in Atlanta because of...yes - snow in Atlanta.
Renee Regent posted about the cancellation on Twitter with the hashtags
#irony and #whatarethechances.
Regent, who describes herself on Twitter as a multi-published Romance Author, Blogger, and owner of 4 turtles, was set to do a book signing for her book, “Running In Snow” at The Gifted Ferret in Woodstock early Saturday.
Oh, the irony.
And not the only one.
On Amazon, a description of “Running in the Snow,” includes the following: “Two heartwarming tales of love and redemption. And snow. Noelle’s Promise Does your past define the future? Noelle has one cardinal rule, never, ever celebrate the holidays. But now she’s promised to spend them with her boyfriend, Logan, and his extended family. As the festivities begin, bad memories surface. She manages to suppress her anxiety and join in the celebrations, until an unexpected incident sends her fleeing into the night.”
The cover features a woman in a winter coat facing branches, fence and open field blanketed in snow. It looks like a cozy winter scene, and incidentally, like much of metro Atlanta during the last 48 hours.
