That's what I am talking about!

I got my snow, I got my snow!!! Can you believe it? On March 1st at that.

I was in Athens on Saturday night (bach pics to come) and my grandparents live nearby so on Sunday morning I went over and met them for lunch. It was nasty and raining when we walked in to the restaurant and less than an hour later when we walked out there was at least 2 inches of snow on the ground. Since this Georgia Peach has no experience with snow or ice everyone though it would be best for me to stay the night with the g-parents. Good thing! The snow kept coming and kept coming and last I checked we were up to six inches ... yes, I was the girl out in the yard with a ruler measuring the snow. Ha! My grandfather said he had not seen snow like that around here since 1977. This is serious stuff, folks! We lost power around 3 pm Sunday afternoon and it was finally restored around 2 am. We were living "Little House on the Prairie" style for a couple of hours but it was fun.

Puppy paw prints!The g-parents sassy cocker spaniel did not know what to think about all the white stuff!

I think she liked it much better inside where it was warm and dry!

So I got my fix ... we may not see weather like that again for another 10 years!
