How did this beautiful "dusting" of snow........
turn into THIS????
If you've seen the national news, you've heard about Snowmagaedon in Atlanta. I thought I was terribly inconvenienced when it took me 3 hours to make what is usually a 15 minute drive, but when I hear about people who were 22 hours getting home and children who never did get home from school, I'm done whining.
I thought I was going to do a sweet post about our snow and get a little humor about how Atlantans panic at the thought of a wee bit of snow.
This photo that I took yesterday is the only photo I have ever taken of our whole house from the driveway in the snow. The few times we have had measurable snow, I've never gotten this view. This was taken on my cell phone as I came up our driveway after that 3 hour drive, so it is not very good quality!
I'd like to give a great big hug to every teacher who comforted a scared child, every policeman who tended to the many, many accidents, every snowplow driver who made pass after pass on those treacherous roads, every store manager who opened their property for bathroom breaks and aisles to sleep in, and every school bus driver who sweated delivering that precious cargo. Bravo!
There's no way Atlanta can prepare adequately for this kind of weather. We just don't have the resources. This will scare us into orbit next time bad weather is expected!
