Middle South: We've got SNOW!

Post  AtlantaMarie on 2/24/2015, 10:42 am

Woo-hoo!  SO much better than ice!

I guess we got between 1/2 & 1 inch.  A friend about 1 hour west got between 2 & 3 inches.

How's everyone else doing?

Oh how fun for you!  We didn't get snow but our mountains did and we got a LOT of rain (every drop desperately needed!)

Woke this morning to crystal clear blue skies and sunshine.  I hope that doesn't last too long... we need the rain more than the sun Smile

Marie, I'll share your little snow fall joy! I'm like a little kid the few hours every decade when we get snow or hail accumulation.

We did not get any.  Things could change tomorrow.  The line tomorrow is going to be from Newnan to Athens.  That puts me right on the border.  I can do without the stuff.  Except I am tired, very tired, of all this rain.  Wish we could have some in July.  I am afraid my garlic and shallots are to toooooo wet.

Thanks Sanderson!

We're expecting anywhere from a trace to another 4 inches within the next 36 hours.  Along with ice, sleet, & freezing rain...  Yipee...Hope it's just snow... Shocked

Well, now they're saying we may get 7 inches or so...  Not including ice & sleet.

Got everything ready for running the generator again.

I feel for you.  Our snow is gone.  Keep expecting a bit more but we are running out of time.
I think I would like some more snow as overall we have had way below the average.  There is a shortage on the mountains and I fear that we are in for a drought this summer, and wildfires in British Columbia.

We are heeding Governor Deal's suggestion to close our office at 2pm and not open again until 10am tomorrow.  I still don't think we will get hit but I bet you will.

I dunno, Yolos...  It looks like it's already on the southside...

Be careful going home!!

I didn't get snow or sleet down here just below Atlanta.  Lots of un-needed rain.  I bet AtlantaMarie got some snow.  She is north of Atlanta I believe so she may have gotten a bit of the bad stuff.  But this year all the governmental agencies were prepared for the worst.

Even though I'm in the Lower South region according to the maps, I am much farther North of you Georgia folks.  We got snow, ice and in the teens all this past week.

I was hoping to get out in the yard, but no go.

Yes, they were Yolos!  I was quite impressed.  Especially after last year's fiasco...

Actually we only got a dusting this time, even w/ the ice.  It moved north at the last minute.

Had a student here Thursday morning.  But we did delay till 10 am instead of 8.
