I have lived in Georgia for 18 years now, and in my eighteen years I have seen snow (real snow, like on the ground snow) only a handul of times. Winter 2010/2011 was an exception to Georgia's I-refuse-to-ever-snow rule. We have received real snow three, count it THREE, times so far this year. This post is about the snow event that happened back in January.
This little event lasted over a week, kept many of us home from work for days, included a horrible layer of ice, and is lovingly known to metro Atlantans as "Snowpocalypse 2011." It was a lot of fun and I am really excited to share these pictures with you. I know it's been a while since it happened, but my blogging hiatus kept me from sharing. I hope you are not soooo over snow by this point.
My friend Kellie over at My Sixties Home made a great point about taking photos of your house in the snow in case you ever find yourself in the middle of selling your home. Well, we aren't planning on going anywhere anytime soon, but this is our first home and we will most likely not live here for the rest of our lives. Having these shots will hopefully help us to sell our house one day! Thanks for the idea, Kellie!
I had to walk across the driveway covered in ice in order to get these shots. As I stepped off the curb I felt myself start to fall.... with my brand new Canon DSLR camera in my hand. I was so worried about my camera that I just threw both of my hands up in the air. Who does that? Apparently me. Sorry, tush.
I spent the first couple of snow days locked in at my parents house. My husband was out of town, so it was a blast playing in the snow with my siblings (and let's just be honest, my mom is out there sledding down hills right alongside us) just like we were kids again.
After a couple days of being locked in the house we found ourselves in need of some Cool Ranch Doritos. We walked 9 miles, barefoot, uphill both ways to get to the closest Walgreens which just so happened to be open. Thank you, Dorito Gods. These pictures were taken with my Blackberry.
The world was Crosby's skating rink....
I don't know about you, but cabin fever + Dayle = delicious baked goods. Snowpocalypse 2011 resulted in some tasty pumpkin bread. Yum!
I don't want this blog to turn into the boring things I do, but this is the science of home.... and days like this make up my own idea of "home." And you were there, and you were there, and even YOU were there! (Wizard of Oz? No? Come ON!)
****As much fun as we had during Snowpocalypse 2011, the hubs and I have been really enjoying the Springlike weather that showed up sometime last week. BIG things are happening in our backyard, and I can't wait to show you! Look for those posts in the next couple of days!*****
