Well, I can say this has probably been the strangest weather week we’ve seen in the 8 years we’ve lived in Georgia. It started last weekend with a threat of “big snow” (which Greg and I didn’t believe, after having grown up in the north). Sure enough, the snow started Sunday night, and it delivered everything the weathermen promised. We got about 6 inches by us, which doesn’t seem like a ton of snow, but Atlanta just doesn’t have the equipment to clear it, and the temperatures haven’t been above freezing. So, if you’re trapped by the snow, what else is there to do but PLAY IN IT!!
Hey! This stuff is DEEP!
Daddy and Noah measuring the snow
While they were outside, Daddy and Noah went sledding down a hill by our house. Noah is very proud to say he went down by himself!
After Noah’s first trip outside, he was very cranky about being cold. I tucked him under a blanket with his Lovey, and he drank a cup of hot tea.
Well, the next day, the snow was STILL here, so Noah wanted to try it again!
Daddy was able to shovel the driveway by borrowing a shovel from a neighbor
(I think everyone on the street borrowed the same one snow shovel!)
The snowy neighborhood
The creek behind our house was very pretty in the snow
Greg and Noah filled the bird feeder in case the birds couldn’t find food in the snow. I’d say it was a hit!
This pretty cardinal was taking a rest in Baby B’s tree
By the second day, the snow was icier and easier to pack to build a snowman. Noah was very proud of their creation!
While we really enjoyed our special, unexpected week of family time, I think Greg will be happy to get back to work today, and we will look forward to some thawing as the temperatures get above freezing. We’re southerners now – we need some heat!
