This Ain't No Redneck Snow

So I was wrong in my characterization of our snowstorm...both on Wednesday and today. It's actually sticking! Wednesday we ended up with about an inch of snow on the ground, but it quickly melted away in the 55 degree sunny weather on Thursday. We have about an inch today, and it's still coming down. We're expecting a chill under 20 degrees tonight and just in the 30s tomorrow, so maybe we'll have a couple of days to play.

The kids had a blast this afternoon building their first snowman...of sorts. The dog quietly snuck off with Mr. Snowman's M&M mouth, but I think Mr. Snowman stood his own even without his candy lips. After the completion of the snowman, we had a family snowball fight in which we all joined forces against Daddy.

Two substantial snowfalls in the same week...quite unprecedented here in Georgia. Someone get Al Gore on the phone...we're experiencing Global Colding (to borrow a term coined by my boys' best friend Jack)!
