Snowpocalypse 2011

We don’t get much snow here in metro Atlanta, at least not compared to the North. So, when weather forecasters predicted snowfall with several inches of accumulation, I kind of brushed it off.

Boy, was I wrong. We woke up last Monday to almost 5 inches at our house. And, because our road is a hill, we were iced in.


Our road is somewhere there in the middle.

We took Lucy out later that morning, and she was not a fan. She’s just like her mommy — she likes being dry and warm!



It was crazy here. Many, like us, were stuck until Wednesday. We finally were able to get down our hill and get to work then. Schools were out for the entire week, and now school systems are trying to figure out how to make up the time (a couple already cancelled winter break next month). We just aren’t prepared for that kind of weather down here.

Now, life is back to normal, and I’m really hoping we don’t get snow like that any time soon. They’re predicting more snow on the 25th. Hopefully, it will just be a dusting and nothing major. Otherwise, it’s my turn to stay at the office.

    Are we really supposed to get more on the 25th??? How exciting! 😀 haha We have a HUGE hill and the kids were still sledding down it on Friday. Snow sure does make a mess when it melts. Someone told me that the Farmer’s Almanac has been dead on with the last two snow’s (Christmad Day and last week) and that it was predicting another one in February. This is all hearsay of course.
