Well, it looks like we may be in for a rough winter in Atlanta this year! This morning we woke up to our second snow of the season and our first of 2018! They aren’t expecting it to get above 27, today, but they’re calling for a high of 62 this weekend. We have a saying, “if you don’t like Atlanta’s weather, just wait a few days and it will change.”
In the meantime, it’s a “work from home day” so I’m taking advantage of the photo ops as best I can………Enjoy!
I really don’t remember the last time we had this much snow in December. Yes, we had snow in December, and even on Christmas Day but by the standards of the mid-westerners it was nothing more than a dusting. If you have ever lived in Atlanta during the snow (or ice as we mostly get) you know all too well that 7 – 10 inches is a rare occurrence for us!
And, because it is so rare the weather forecasters’ predictions were a little off (we were only suppose to get “flurries.”) By 3 p.m. last Friday we already had about 2 inches and the snow was coming down fast. It didn’t take long for me to pull the camera out!
By Saturday morning, there was the most beautiful blanket of snow covering everything in site!
You would think we were in the mid-west with all of this snow!
A Sansanqua Camellia bud peaks through the snow!
Look at all the snow covering up the pansies!
Fortunately, the roads weren’t too bad and we were able to venture out later in the morning. The photo below was taken as we crossed the Chattahoochee River. I just love how the birds are lined up on the power lines as if to keep them safe from the freezing water.
The sun has been out the last couple of days, the temperature is beginning to rise and the snow is melting away. Our little Winter Wonderland was nice while it lasted, but I think I’m ready for the “other white stuff……….” a nice sandy beach and a warm ocean next to it!
