Wordless Wednesday: April Showers Bring May Snow

Snow in the South

On Sunday, Georgia was slammed with a crazy winter storm. The weekend had been particularly rainy, converting around noon into a wintry mix, into a snow flurry. The snow was at its worst just as we ran out the door to church. Church was canceled after Sacrament Meeting, as well as all meetings for the rest of the day. Rosie and I changed into our pajamas, and Taylor relaxed with us for a few hours. He was called out to the airport for a trip to CLE…but the whole airport was a wreck with delays. His flight was canceled, and he returned home. School was canceled on Monday, and a layer of snow and ice remain in some shady corners today on Tuesday.

After living through TRUE storms in Utah and Idaho, it was a bit humorous watching southerners squirm with the wintry conditions.

You know you’ll be housebound when…

I looked out the window this morning around 5:30, knowing that there was a snow storm overnight. Apparently, we got about 3 inches of snow, then an inch of ice, covered by another 4 inches of snow. School’s already canceled. Looks like it’s soup, hot tea, and movies for Rosie and I today!

Crazy Impromptu Utah Blizzards!

When I told people I was moving to Michigan in the winter, everyone said “Oh, it’s going to be so cold?” or “Do you know how to drive in snow?” I told them that I’ve lived in Utah and Idaho, so I was used to it. But after two years in California, I had become rusty on my winter driving skills. This has been a particularly snowy winter in Utah, and on the way back from a friend’s house I got caught up in a blizzard. It was white out conditions, with about 7 inches of accumulation in 2 hours.

There was so much snow that I needed Shawn and Rosie to help me shovel the driveway in order to get the car up the driveway. 20 minutes of hard labor later…the car made it into the garage.

For those of you who ski and snowboard, you should definitely try to plan a trip out to the Greatest Snow on Earth. It’s the greatest year to take advantage to it.
