Snow! Snow! Snow!

As 2011 came cruising in, so did the cold weather.  In the south, we usually drop into some cold temperatures but rarely get snow until this year!

Snow jam 2011 came to Georgia on Sunday, January 9 around 8:30 p.m. I have never seen snow come down so much, so quickly and I have lived here for 37 years. I went for a night time walk to take some pictures of the historic district in which we are so blessed to live in.  Here are some pictures for you to enjoy (yes! pictures! I used my SLR camera which has its USB cord!):

This is the home across the street from us.  I think their home is from the 1860s.
Our neighbors next door have a home that is similar in age to ours.  We think it is from 1905.
I am so glad I got these pictures at night.  I have some good ones from the next day but once the kids starting playing the untouched magic of new snow was gone in an instant!

This is a photograph of the home my grandmother and aunt live in down the street from us.  I'll have to find out from them the age.  I really should know this considering I grew up in it!

We are headed for a third day of iced over snow and school closings.  To break up cabin fever on day two, we were invited to a play date then we checked out the roads in our Explorer.  There is still plenty of thick ice on the back roads and in the subdivisions.  It has been dropping into the low 20s at night so anything that melts is turning right back into ice.  The last thing we accomplished today before sunset (we finally saw a bit of the sun today) was to make this "snow chick" on the back deck.  Enjoy!
