Last week we had some “inclement weather” down here in the south. To many of you who live north, a dusting of a 1/4 to 1/2 inch of snow may not seem like much, but down here, it is a big deal. Many schools were closed, store shelves were pretty bare in the bread and milk aisles, and cars were slipping and spinning out.
Last year we all had stories of the “Snowmagedon” that occurred in Atlanta that left us abandoning our cars in the snow and ice to walk home or to a safe place. This year, it seemed like we were a bit more prepared. We made it home in a reasonable time and had an opportunity to enjoy an afternoon of snow and snowball fights with the neighbors. I am pretty sure I zinged Adam pretty badly at least a few times!
Our steep and narrow street was a bit difficult to traverse but luckily we didn’t experience ice.
The trees in our backyard looked beautiful all outlined in white. It is such a contrast to the green jungle-like feel we have all summer long, surrounded by beautiful greenery.
Lily also had a memorable week. She can officially say she walked to school almost 2 miles uphill in the snow this week when we weren’t able to get up our driveway and street safely in the car. I know it will be a memory she will have for years to come.
I hope you are making your own winter memories where ever you may be!
