Okay, I know a lot of the country doesn't get this excited when it starts raining white stuff. But around here, down in the deep south, this kind of blowing snow is considered a near whiteout. :-) At the merest hint (or even prediction) of a flurry, most people go running for the grocery stores and gas stations and swipe the shelves clean of milk, bread and anything else they think they might need for the next week and a half! Unfortunately, it's not predicted to last through the night, but it's been beautiful to enjoy for the evening. Huge, fat snowflakes that have accumulated nicely everywhere (except the road, sigh). When I came home from work, there were about fifteen neighborhood kids playing in the yard across the street.
Sadly, our beautiful snowfall has already disintegrated into a mere cold drizzle, but here are some pics I took earlier tonight. The first is our fishpond, and the second is out the front door (only place I could get enough light, since I still haven't read the directions on my digital camera. I'm stubborn that way...) I REALLY wish we'd get a snow day out of this, but tomorrow's high is predicted at 40, which along with tonight's rain should turn it into a gray, but not icy, morning. At least I hope it's not icy!
Tucker loves the snow, and jumped around like a puppy (she's 11), but I couldn't get a shot of her smiling face without the snow blowing into either her eyes or mine. Oh well. Anyway, happy Wednesday! It finally feels (and looks) like winter here in Atlanta!
