Only in the South

Thursday it was 75 degrees, and Sunday it was snowing. In March. Yesterday we woke up to the Southern version of a winter wonderland. We got a total of about 2 inches in our yard. It didn't quite compare with the infamous Blizzard of '93, but it was a nice treat. It is such a rare thing when it snows in the south, and we don't quite know what to do with it. Anyone not from the South doesn't understand how our life comes to a screeching halt as soon as the "s" word is predicted. We don't know how to drive in it, grocery stores immediately sell out of milk and bread, and goodness knows we don't have clothes warm enough for it. Life as we know it is over until it melts in a few hours. Heaven knows you probably can't find a snow plow south of the Mason-Dixon line. We're just not cut out for snow! It snowed yesterday off and on for about 6 hours, and it was completely gone by at 3:00 in the afternoon. We enjoyed it until then, but I'm glad that I don't have to deal with it very often!

Jackson loved it!

It was so cold outside!

Unlike the snow in Denver, this was a very wet snow, and would soak you in a matter of minutes.

Are we cold yet?

I hope you enjoyed the pictures. Have a great Monday!

Wasn't it fun!! LET IT SNOW LET IT SNOW LET IT SNOW. From tornados on Friday, to snow on Sunday, and this Friday it is suppose to be 80 degrees. This has got to be the strangest weather we have had in a long time. Loved the pictures!!!

Up here, if you can still see grass through it, it isn't really snow. ;) Glad you had fun, I'd happily send any over your way any time you want it.
