Perhaps you got confused. This is Georgia. We're a state somewhere in the Southern United States - one of the lower ones. We don't get snow 'round here very often. It's rare to see it more than once a year, and any accumulation of more than an inch is cause for grave concern.

And yet, we have already had two snowstorms this year. The first was lovely, coming as it did on Christmas and giving us a pretty white landscape to look at when few people wished to be out and about. It left the roadways fairly clear, and melted on schedule. The second was less fun. 5 inches of snow is more than generous, and when you then coat it with a half-inch of ice, it is really too much. You shut down the city for a week and nearly drove parents insane. I would have thought that would have done it for you.

But no. Looking in my forecast, I see not one, but two possible days in the near future when snow is predicted. Look, this must stop. Take the snow to Georgia the country where it belongs (at least in the mountains, I'm told) and leave us poor folks alone. At the very least, please dump it somewhere that has snowplows because we don't, and we never have.

Boom shanka,

There's about three inches of wet, heavy snow on my deck, and it's still coming down, albeit lightly now. We got out, built a small snowman and threw some snowballs. It's utterly gorgeous outside right now.

Pictures from the past several months are up:

Oooh. Pretty trees.

Just a pretty: Frost on Nandina

We were planning a quiet day tomorrow, but someone apparently really REALLY needs to look at houses while they're covered in snow, so we'll be showing the house. Who knows; maybe they'll love it. One can always hope.

Big fat fluffy snowflakes on a day when we've got nothing planned and nowhere to go. Hot chocolate (Ahh, Williams Sonoma, how I love you) with the kiddo, and a lazy day. Good gaming session last night. Really really tasty hamburgers. Plenty of leftovers for the day. No need to go anywhere at all. This month is definitely looking up.

It's snowing big fat fluffy happy snowflakes where I am right now. 10 miles south of me is getting rain. It's the pretty kind of snow that doesn't clog roads or do anything but look pretty falling out of the sky. It's also the kind of snow that sent me scurrying to Dunkin Donunts for a large cup of hot coffee because it's just that kind of day. I feel like I should be curling up in bed. As this isn't an option, I'm curling up in my cube as best I can.

Weekend Update )

Amusing but somewhat scary Factoid: The Rolling Stones played at the Super Bowl. Apparently they played a song (Satisfaction) that they could have played at teh very first Super Bowl.

Someone needs to tell these guys to retire, already.
