Snow Storm in Georgia

The weather report told us that NW Georgia was not going to be getting snow....maybe just a flurry. But, the weather system moved farther north and now here we are with a few inches. I have to just laugh when I watch the news, they show clips of people buying up all the o

bread and milk. Down here, in the south, we don't get a lot of snow and if we do get snow, everything shuts down. Of course, this small amount of snow is nothing compared to the our northern states. I'm sure there are plenty of northerners laughing at us right now :) Buck did get home from work (but it took twice as long), he made it half way up our long driveway and had to leave his vehicle and walk the remainder of the way.  My father in law left work at a little after noon (works close to Atlanta) and right now at 7pm he is still driving! Poor guy has been driving for over 6.5 hrs and still isn't home. My brother in law went off the road close to his house and walked the rest of the way. I am so very thankful that my job keeps me at The children had a dentist apt tomorrow, but they called and said the office will be closed for at least tomorrow.  So, I think tomorrow the kids will have a snow day!

We did enjoy the snow today after schoolwork. I put Little Young down for a nap and we all bundled up and grabbed the sleds. The children got the sleds for Christmas 2011 and this was the first time we have had a chance to use them (that just tells you how often we get this much snow). It was a lot of fun and we are all thankful for the snow to play after tomorrow it can melt.....please :)

Please say an extra prayer for the people that haven't or couldn't make it home tonight and the children that are spending the night at school with their teachers.
