GEORGIA WINTER SNOW



This morning we woke up to 2 to 3 inches of snow and if you live
 in Georgia you know that doesn't happen but every few years.
 Feb. 2011 was the last big snow that we had.  Everyone gets excited! It is pretty, but the mess it causes isn't very pretty, just ask the thousands of people that has been stuck in their cars for hours in Atlanta! Most has spent the night in their cars and hundreds of children couldn't get home from school and had to stay overnight in the gyms.  I pray they can get the roads open today.

This is outside my home this morning. I am a little over an hour south of Atlanta.









Stay warm and have a Blessed day!
Sylvia

  2. Thank you for showing us, what it looks like, around your house, in the South!

    Yes, it is much worse for the South, which is not equipped with the snow clearing machinery. Nor do Southern drivers get much practice with snow driving.

    Our oldest Grand daughter is in college in Loyola, Baltimore. Having grown up in upper NYS, she is experienced with snow. But it certainly is unique, for that area.

    Stay warm and inside, I hope. And best wishes to all those, who have been caught up in this messsssy weather.

    Gentle hugs,
    Tessa~

  3. Stay safe and warm! We have had the cold here, but except for our ice storm back in December, it's been dry. We were stuck in the house for 4 days with that storm!

  6. It is just so hard to believe that you have snow like that down there, Sylvia. Stay warm and safe. WE have MORE snow coming here tomorrow- about 4" more they say. We are all tired of it- xo Diana.

  7. Hello Sylvia,
    I was watching the morning news here. It was showing the snow in Georgia and how children had to sleep in schools and people in cars.
    You have deep deep snow there in your garden. Its like my sister's area in England.
    We have bright sun, but its cold 4ºC here at the moment.
    Stay warm and safe..

  8. Hi Sylvia,
    I lived in Georgia in 2000-2001. We had an inch of snow and they closed everything down. But I remember the flowers that were starting to bloom early in the spring. It takes so long in Michigan that I honestly thought the Georgia flowers were artificial.

    Your blog is absolutely elegant. The pictures are great and displayed so beautifully. How great to be in touch with you!
    Hugs! Barb

  9. The snow was a major problem wasn't it. Maybe not the snow as much as the ice. We are getting another round on Tuesday. It looks like winter isn't loosening it's grip just yet.
    Stay warm!
