It snowed today. And it stuck. I don’t think I’ve seen that much snow since we moved here 4 years ago. In fact, it accumulated! There must have been 2 inches in the front yard. It was enough to build a snowman, but the really great part is that it only accumulated on the grass and bushes – the sidewalks, roads, and driveways stayed perfectly clear.
So, no snow to shovel. But plenty to build a snowman. And have our first snowball fight. (Bean loves it, Little Man hates it.) And, since we’re in Georgia, the whole darn city shuts down. That’s right. We even got an email today saying that church has been canceled due to ‘inclement weather.’ Do you know what that means? If the snow stays until tomorrow we have the perfect excuse to repair our decapitated snowman (don’t ask) and have another snowball fight!
Note: church will re-open tomorrow afternoon and there will be an evening service. So, I’m not celebrating that I get to ‘skip out’ on church – we’ll go in the evening. But it’s great to be in a place where snow brings the world to a crashing halt because everyone’s too busy reveling in the fun of it to be bothered with doing anything remotely productive.
