Day 43: Let it snow!!

So, at long last, the long talked-about snow finally arrived in Georgia! Seems those snow pants yesterday worked! It started around 2:00 this afternoon while we were still at school. Being in a trailer, ahem, portable, allows me to see what’s going on weather-wise pretty easily! The kids were begging to go out and “play” in the snow. I let them have the last couple of minutes out in it, as much for them as for me! I love snow!! The students were screaming and laughing and really enjoyed the novelty of falling snow here in Atlanta. I actually enjoyed sharing it with them! 🙂

The snow continued falling most of the afternoon and evening. I thought it had stopped once the sun set. However, it looks like it is actually starting to accumulate not just on grass, but on the road and pavement! Fingers are crossed for a bonus day off tomorrow! I’ll keep you posted. 😉

ETA: They just came on the news and announced no school tomorrow! Yippee!!

As I was driving home from tutoring, the rain seemed to get louder than usual on my car. I realized that it wasn’t actually rain, but sleet! I had a hard time getting photos since I was driving and for once, there wasn’t any traffic to slow down for that would let me take a better shot! Either way, the sleet was pretty heavy for a short while. By the time I got home, though, it had stopped. It ended up snowing in the North Georgia mountains over night. Crazy winter weather!!

Can you see it?? Right there in the center of the photograph on the roof? The blurry snowflake?? Really! It totally snowed here!! The local news made such a big deal about the “winter storm watch”, but honestly, only north Georgia got any measurable snow. I was able to catch this shot of the few flakes that fell this morning.. right before the sun came out. Oh well. It was fun for like 10 seconds! Maybe it will snow again right before Christmas and really give us something to get excited about!

It was only about 5:30 when this photo was taken but the sun had already set and it was getting dark. Well, darker… it’s been cold, grey and rainy all day. I was thankful the rain stopped in time for my after school tutoring sessions, though. I am also very glad that we are only about 18 days away from the shortest day of the year. That means we’ll see be over the hump of dark days like this!
