A Snowy Day


I'm interrupting my post I had planned for today due to...... SNOW.  In the deep south, when it snows, everything stops,  everything.  I'm just sayin' it's kind of a big deal around here. Snow falls fast and furious and then poof, it's gone, so you've got to be quick cause if you blink, you may miss it altogether. 




At the first sign of a flake, we run like mad men to our closets digging for our hats and mittens that we never  wear, and we layer up like the next ice age is coming, we'd make the Alaskan's proud. Northerners think we're crazy, and they're not all that far off honestly.




We do go a little overboard with our 'snow'. Bundle up good, I'd hear as a child, don't want to catch your death of cold. Sounds reasonable enough{?}, so bundle up it is!



For some reason, Matthew figured that it would be all kinds of awesome to ride the go kart in the snow, something about cool 'drifting' moves he could do? The go kart had other plans- too cold. It sputtered a bit and little impressive puffs of smoke came out of the engine, but in the end, no kart.




This equaled one disappointed little boy. He quickly moved on to snow angels though. Sounds pretty enough right, but remember it's Georgia, tiny snow + mostly mud = more laundry for mama!




Still, we take what we can get around here as far as the white fluffy stuff goes. Hope you're staying warm in your little neck of the woods. Until next time sweet friends.......

  1. You're so right! I scramble for about a half hour looking for snow clothes. We got out the door with new Christmas sleds. I drove to our hill to find that the snow hadn't stuck. Maybe next time. I at least practiced the outfits. I had to send you post to my Michigan people.

  2. It's been such a frustrating season for those of us in the great white north...it's been a great BROWN north. *sigh*
    No SNOW!!
    I can take all the cold you give me - as long as you put some snow in there...but so far, I think we've had about 6 inches of snow TOTAL in southeast Michigan.
    My poor boys have brand new snowboards, and so far our snowfall hasn't even been enough to get out a shovel, never mind the boards!

  3. We got snow here in Missouri!!! My toddler grandson loves to walk down our snowy road to see the moo cows, was pretty upset yesterday because the cows were in the barn!

    1. And I thought I was the only one that called them moo cows. My kiddos have always laughed at me! Yay for your snow! We're expecting more tomorrow- fingers crossed!

  4. Just a quick reply from a Canadian girl...had a good chuckle when I saw all the grass poking out. True snow days here are amazing and require about a foot of the white stuff for things to shut down.
    I hope your son gets a good amount of the white stuff.
    Have a great weekend

    1. A foot??? Y'all are awesome! We were recently in Wyoming and went over to the Medicine Bow area, and I literally squealed with joy when my foot sunk down in about a foot of snow! That was a first for me! Thanks for visiting today!

  5. Oh I wish we only had what you had. Sitting by the fire in NJ and we're working on 18-24 inches! And my dh is out of town, so that means the twelve year old and I are tackling the shoveling. The kids love it though... So exciting! Lora
