It started snowing this morning at about 11:30 — a couple hours after it was predicted to start, but it started. Where we live in Georgia we do not normally get much snow. We did have one evening that had a snow/sleet mix a month or so ago.
Today’s snowfall, however, was pretty. It is still pretty as I look out the window at the security light, which is lighting up the tree with the snow shimmering off it. This picture does not do it justice!
But when we do get a snow, even if just a few inches, everything shuts down. I lived in Minnesota for several years and we’d get waaaaay more snow up there and still go about our day. But the roads are different — curvy and hilly compared to straight and level. And the equipment the county and state has to clear the roads is different, too. As you can imagine, Minnesota has lots of heavy equipment to keep the roads clear and free of ice — as best they can! And since Georgia doesn’t normally get much of the powdery white stuff, there’s no need for all that heavy equipment.
My daughter and I enjoyed an hour of snowball fights and building a snowman named Bob. We aren’t snowman engineers, though, because Bob fell over shortly after we came in the house. He’s now laying in the bushes. Poor Bob…
And the horses, I’m sure, would rather be someplace else! But at least they have their blankies on to help them stay warm and dry. And they do have shelter they could go into if they really wanted out of the snow! I don’t know how the horses make it up north!!
I could make this post business related, like making sure you’re prepared in your own business and making sure you have the right tools you need…but I won’t. I’ll just leave it as a fun post! Enjoy!
