EDIT:10:00 AM – It’s really coming down now! Just took 2 more pics (above) and it’s a blizzard out there, cold and wet and snowy. Glad we’re inside!
Look what we woke up to this morning! I heard about the possibility of snow coming our way on Saturday, but really didn’t think much about it. But, when we woke up this morning and looked out the window, here’s what we saw….
Our neighbor must have left to get milk and bread. That’s the joke in the South when snow starts falling. The stores get over run with folks buying all the milk and bread they can get. It’s still coming down and the streets are starting to get more covered now, so we’re not going anywhere today.
I love snow days!
We’ll snuggle down in our warm and cozy house and enjoy the day, since we don’t often get days like this. Now I know compared to the North, this snow is nothing, but we can’t help but get a little giddy when we see those flakes falling!
Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality says
Well, it's not lasting too long, the sun is already out & it's 1/2 melted. That's the way it is in the South this time of year, the weather can turn so quickly. It was fun to see while it lasted. I think the roads are fine, so we'll go to the 6 pm service at church tonight.
It was fun staying in my PJ's all day. 🙂
Kathy, thanks for telling me about your deals. Those sound great. I love those coffee makers, they are so neat.

I can’t believe all the Southern ladies are getting snow! We’re waiting for some tonight…Just in time for my morning commute…Ahhh…:-)
Enjoy your snow day!

I live up in Decatur and we got about 3 inches of snow. It is all melted now, but my kids sure had a lot of fun this morning!! 🙂
That looks so beautiful. It was 99degrees here a couple of days ago. I can’t even imagine the joy of snow. Thanks for sharing your treasure!

I love your blog, Rhoda!
I post your pictures from Seaside at my blog, and linked to yours.
Hope you like! Have a wonderful sunday!
Hi Ms. Rhoda…if you hadn’t included photos of snow in B’ham, I might not have believed it…LOL
Enjoy every beautiful flake! I’m off to check your tater soup recipe…. ;-)Bo
I just read on cnn.com that B’ham got snow so I rushed here to see if you had pics! LOL
I have relatives in Greenville, SC and the whole town basically shuts down when it snows because they don’t have equipment to deal with it. I live in the north and we’re used to hundreds of inches of it. Not that we like it, but we’re used to it! I’m glad this blizzard will miss us.
Thanks for posting the pics.

I love to see the beautiful snow, thank you for sharing the pictures. It *almost* makes me wish there was snow outside my window. 🙂
We awoke to a similar picture this AM, but it was gone this evening… I understand more is on the way. Your pictures are beautiful.
Robin @ My Blessed Nest says
Hi Rhoda, wasn’t it beautiful? It’s been so long since we saw the wonderful white stuff!! I just posted some of the photos we took this morning, too! If only it had lasted just a little longer, huh? Blessings, Robin!
woo-hoo! I can just feel your happy excitement! It all looks so pretty, too. Enjoy it with a smile, dear Rhoda!

Just found your beautiful blog. your pictures are so lovely. And to think that I posted about a coat that I probably can’t wear because it is too warm…. I live in Southern Calif.

Here too, we received a foot of snow in Memphis yesterday… very unusual! We all went sledding this afternoon, think it was my first time ever:)
You inspired me! I followed your Bathroom Mirror project and remodeled my bathroom. I linked over to your blog and your post about your mirror. I hope that is okay. You can see my mirror here: http://laceysapplesauce.blogspot.com/2009/03/bathroom-remodel.html
Thanks again for your great tutorial!

I’m catching up with you here, had a very very busy week, love the new look, very you
I’m so jealous of the snow, one thing I really really miss is those days, I guess I just have to put up with sun and the beach *wink
I’m saving that soup for winter, a few months to go until we are a bit cooler and into soup
Omah's Helping Hands says
That sure looks pretty. I love the snow most of the time. That is some really wet stuff though. That can make for a sloppy mess. Makes for a great day of staying home and snuggling with the hubby though. 😉
Living with Lindsay says
Very beautiful! I’ll admit that I wouldn’t know what to do with myself if I looked out and saw that. There’s a reason I live in Central Texas. 😉
Linda Merrill says
I guess the milk and bread thing is universal when snow is coming. A friend refers to it up here as “Yankee Milk Fever”.
Wasn’t the snow wonderful?!! Our church cancelled services. I drove around and got some pix. They’re on my blog. Hope we get some more!
