Some years in the South we get no snow at all. We had one of those last year. So far this winter we have been blessed (I’m going to say blessed) with two. A giant storm dumped snow, ice and wintry mix from Dallas, TX to Augusta, GA then all the way up the coast to New York City. This is not the 2″ that shut down Atlanta in January. We actually experienced two different fronts that brought 4″ worth of accumulation twice in the same week.
Here are just a few snowy pics that I took myself in northwest Georgia.
My wife Teresa with daughter Johannah
We made a Johannah sized snowman.
Crape Myrtle tree; normally pink, also lovely in white.
White gardenia bush. Normally 6 or 7 feet high, here it’s bent down to about 4.
Look at these fence post tops. That is some sticky stuff.
While we never lost power you can clearly see the potential for problems. A little bit of sleet/freezing rain caused the snow to grab hold of everything.
Here the local utility company removes a pine tree that bent across the street resting on our power lines. The line did not break but we were kind of trapped until they cut the tree away.
Pic posted by a friend. This weather is beautiful yet dangerous since we only get it once in a while.
