Thunder Snow

I am pleased to report that the snow is falling outside my window. 

Excitement fills the house over this wonderment.

Beginning Snow

Snow doesn’t fall in Atlanta very often.

But when it makes its appearance,

we all feel like a child. 

tulip Tree

As the tulip tree begins to bloom, the snow has other thoughts.

All signs of life will be coated with ice tonight,

thus causing us to wait until yet another year.

Snowy Tree

Currently, there is about 2 inches of snow on the ground.

Lucky for us, the snow is still falling.

With no where to go, we are enjoying the chili

and sipping hot chocolate.

Enjoy - the novelty of snow has worn off up here!

I hope your trees don't get damaged by ice. Have a hot chocolate for me!

Wasn't the snow beautiful? I was on the deck snapping pictures when it thundered. Snow and thunder - how cool! I'll have photos on my blog later this evening. Not sure they're as lovely as yours though.

These are beautiful, Deb! The snow is heading here and we're to have 3 to 6 inches tomorrow. I'm hoping for a snow day. We're all stocked up.

This snow was so special with the huge flakes. It is really nice. Enjoy your cozy coco. I may have to have a cup myself. Pray for no ice in the morning.

Enjoy your snow. We are currently in the middle of a wind/dust storm. We need some rain, but the clouds are not cooperating at this point...if it rained now, it would be mud falling from the sky!!
