Yesterday the South saw a snowstorm that brought Atlanta and several other cities to their knees. Not a deep snowfall but an icy one. As it happens, I was in Asheville yesterday morning as the snow started to fall. After an hour or so of wondering whether I should try to get home or not, and several phone calls to my husband for his advice and weather condition check at home, I decided to go for it... the road, that is!
This was about the extent of the snowy driving conditions I saw along the way. Since I left Asheville early enough, I was just a few minutes ahead of the snow that was moving east and turning the roads into ice rinks all through the area.
By the time I'd unloaded my car and walked back to the studio, this much snow had fallen.
This was measured on the railing of my back porch at the studio. The snow wound up being around 2" by the end of the day.
My studio in the snow... first, from the back yard there:
Then looking across our backyard at the house to the studio around twilight:
Yes... just a little snow in Georgia goes a long way to making for adventures. Some good, lots bad this time around for many, many people, however.
