We may not be as prepared for the snow here in the South as other areas; as we’ve seen in the past few days, memories are vivid of the Snowpocalypse from a few years back that shut down Atlanta for two days. Businesses all over Huntsville have been closed this week, schools cancelled class, and people all over Madison County left their jammies on to enjoy being homebound.

It’s a great opportunity to pick up some early Christmas presents or upgrade some of your technology while prices are slashed. Also, very low risk of being trampled from your living room. Consider this our endorsement!
