The middle of this week has been my "weekend" because I was in the woods for six consecutive days ending Monday. Thus I was able to stay at home when the snow arrived in central Georgia on Tuesday night.
Tuesday afternoon saw cold rain. As darkness fell, the temperature dipped below freezing, and the rain quickly changed to snow.
This was the view from an upstairs window the next morning.
The grand snowfall total was two inches. Small by northern standards, but enough to bring traffic to a grinding halt.
Lucky for me, I was able to stay at home. My truck gathered snow in the driveway.
Here are some pictures taken in and around my yard.
Thursday morning, the low in Macon was 12, which was several degrees colder than predicted. When snow is on the ground on a clear night, it can really get cold. By afternoon, the temperature had crept above freezing, and blobs of snow are falling from the trees. The snow is on its way to becoming plain ol' water.
The floor is now open. We don't have pie fights here, but perhaps a snowball fight would be appropriate.
"Green Diary Rescue" is Back!
After a hiatus of over 1 1/2 years, Meteor Blades has revived his excellent series. As MB explained, this weekly diary is a "round-up with excerpts and links... of the hard work so many Kossacks put into bringing matters of environmental concern to the community... I'll be starting out with some commentary of my own on an issue related to the environment, a word I take in its broadest meaning."
"Green Diary Rescue" will be posted every Saturday at 1:00 pm Pacific Time on the Daily Kos front page. Be sure to recommend and comment in the diary.
