It snowed all night, wonderland and pinch me

Photo by Jerry Tirado - "three inches so far" taken around midnight

- My camera battery needed charging (of course) so perhaps I will be able to post my own photos of the snow in north Georgia tomorrow. Friend Jerry is more of a night owl than me and posted this one on facebook after midnight.

- Waking up to what sounded like rain hitting the windows, but it is sleet that is packing in the snow that fell all night. Opening the front door at 4:45am to a winter wonderland.

- We were warned of this snow and ice system approaching Georgia on Friday and decided to close the printing company today and possibly tomorrow. This means I get to read, watch movies and cook today. Somebody pinch me. :)

Lordy. I heard on the news last night that Atlanta was expecting half a foot of snow and about fell out of my chair. I naturally though of you right away. What is going on with the weather? It seems like the south keeps getting this weird winter weather. Usually not six inches of snow, though! Enjoy your extra day off, Lynn!

Enjoy the snow--it seems that Atlanta is getting more of it than those of us up north.

Lynn~ You're living in 'my' world!! What's it like on Monday?; do you have to go to work? No school (again) today in the High Country! Snow-snow-snow!

TALON said...

I'm so glad you don't have to drive in it and can just enjoy a "snow day" :)

A blanket of white
seen all around
In an era yellow light
no sun to be found

Sleet pecking
at my window sill
At four in the morning
they told me it fell

No work will I do
my job is shut down
I’m staying at home
and just putting around

Well I hope you really enjoyed being cozied up in your home today!!

Lovely photo. I can see by all the footprints that someone is trying to make it outside!

Lynn said...

FB -

I don't know - it was boiling hot from March to October and then switched to 20 degrees. Crazy. I'm enjoying the heck out of it though. :)

Sage -

That's what a I hear.

lg -

No school today here either. No - we're closed today and probably tomorrow, too. I did think about you and your beautiful snow pics.

Talon -

I'm pretty much playing Mahjong and watching Channel 11 - they keep showing trucks stuck in the snow, etc. which makes me happy to be home. :)

Ellis -

I am checking my work email - but not obsessively. Thank you for my poem. :)

Lynn said...

Joe -

That was Jerry going in and out of his condo, I imagine. I will enjoy it.

Lance said...

Enjoy your snow day, Lynn!!!

Louvregirl said...

Yeah! School's out...snow day!! let us know how you fared!

Maude Lynn said...

Glad your home, Lynn, and don't have to drive in that!

Jannie Funster said...

Nope, won't pinch you. Enjoy your day "off school!!" ;) Stay in that dreamy state as long as you want to!!

Jerry took an awesome photo! And can't wait to see yours, but I will have to.

I guess snow would be a wonderful thing if you normally don't get any where you live.

However, in my state, snow isn't such a wonderful thing.

But hope you are staying safe and enjoying it just the same.


Lynn said...

Lance -

I did enjoy it. Looks like more of the same tomorrow.

Mama Zen -

Me, too. :)

Jannie -

He did take a nice picture - there were tons of others from other friends on facebook today.

G -

It is exciting to us because we don't get much snow. :)

Enjoy the days off! There is supposed to (maybe) be a snow and ice storm here tomorrow, we'll see...

Snaggle Tooth said...

I'd heard Atlanta was getting nailed- Sounds like a great vacation- that is, if you don't have to shovel n drive in it- like I usually have to!
Hope your Camera is back in action before it all melts-

We're expecting the same storm Weds pm here.
Enjoy your forced home time!

Lynn said...

Riot Kitty -

I am enjoying it to a point. There are things that need doing, but hopefully I can get out tomorrow sometime.

Snaggle -

We just aren't equipped for it here - I don't even have a shovel of any description to shovel out, although that is probably what it will take. I'm hoping the temperature rises above freezing today so the ice melts a bit.

The low battery added to the romance of the photograph. I love it.

Lynn said...

Granny Annie -

Thank you. :)
