Snow HIT Georgia last night in case you didn’t see this National News Story. Thankfully, my daughters took some pictures.
Since I grew up in the Midwest, I don’t really freak out when it snows. But I respect the fact that it is an exciting time for people who see snow just a few times in their life. I think it’s a marvelous thing for kids to experience.
Sometimes I even get a little sad thinking my kids have missed some really great winter activities like sledding, skiing and snowmobiling.
As you can see, we got a a really, thick blanket of snow. I wish I had a picture of my 8 year-old standing in the street with an umbrella watching the snow fall for two hours freezing but full of glee.
The 11:00 news story made me laugh. I know these kinds of interviews are what gives the South a bad name. You know what I mean, as if people in the south aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed…
They actually interviewed a grown man and a 17 year-old boy who described how he made a snowman. It went something like this and you’ll have to insert your own twang while reading:
I started with a small snowball and then I started rollin’ it all over the yard and it just kept gitin’ bigger and bigger then I made another one and another one. Then I went inside and got him a hat.
Then they showed his creation which I’m sure was a very proud moment for him and his maw and paw.
You might think I’m makin’ fun. But I can’t. Not really. Because then my 16 year-old twin daughters came in and showed me this picture of their very own creation.
