Sheriff Cancels Valentines Day

Guys in Georgia are officially off the hook as the sheriff thinks shopping is too dangerous under current conditions.  (Depending on your girl, Valentines Day shopping can be dangerous under any conditions!)

The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page, recently posted the following announcement:

“The Oconee County County Sheriffs Office announces that Valentines Day has been CANCELLED from a line North of I-16 to the Georgia/Tennessee border. Men who live in the designated “NO VALENTINES DAY ZONE” are exempt from having to run out and buy lottery scratchers and Hershey bars from the corner stores until February 18, 2014, due to ice, snow, freezing rain.”

I bet there are PLENTY of guys, and possibly a few ladies, (in addition to the single ones) who wish El Paso’s Sheriff Wiles would do this to!

The message was really a tounge in cheek warning for people to stay off the roads as winter storms have caused unusually hazardous driving conditions in that area.  The storms have forced schools and businesses to close and emergency personnel have been sleeping at their job sites as they deal with all the emergency calls.

Meanwhile in El Paso, we’re looking at sunny skies and a high near 80.
