SNOW in Atlanta!!
Snowmen we made today in a friend's back yard
Joanna and me Wednesday night
Crazy of all crazy things, it snowed here on Wednesday and again today. Today they got abot 2" a first in 3 years. I was pretty amused by the reaction. ALL the news all morning and afternoon was "storm" coverage...the temps are dropping, rising, dropping, we have sleet, snow, ice building etc.
Sally and I went to Wallmart to get some things and it was a mad house! People were out stocking up like Armagedon had come. The big thing to do, or I guess that just happens here when it snows is that everybody goes out and buys milk, bread and eggs in case they can't get out to the store for an extended period of time (1-2 days). The funny thing? The roads were clear by dinner time. The snow will be gone completely by Monday if it warms up. I walked around Walmart and just smiled to myself as I watched people load their carts up. The hat and glove section was empty. To their credit the melt/freeze temp change does make icy roads and they are not used to driving on ice. It's been a cultural experience this week!
