Look what old man Winter brought our way today! I know this is not a new thing to many of you, but those of us who grew up in the South aren’t very used to seeing the white stuff around here. It’s a novelty for sure. From the news reports, just about the whole state got some flurries and a few inches, as well as Georgia.
So, of course I had to document it for the records. This is definitely the first snow we’ve had since we moved here 2 years ago and we were trying to remember the last snow we got in the Southeast. I know it’s been a few years. After a mild start to our Winter, we weren’t sure we would get any blustery weather this year. It’s cold…and a great day to stay inside and snuggle down with some good books.
You can see it’s not very much snow really, but the kids all around us sure had fun playing in it. This is our frontyard after it stopped snowing.
The kids next door managed to put together a pretty awesome snowman, in spite of the rather sparse amount of snow we have on the ground. I don’t think it will last long.
So, I’m really glad I took the opportunity to stop by the library and pick up some books to read last week. This kind of weather is just the best for cozying up in a chair or on the sofa with lots of books around. From fiction to non-fiction, decorating to beauty, I think I’ll be set for a couple of weeks reading material.
