Snow Day Pictures

It doesn't snow much in Athens, GA, so when it does snow it is definitely something to blog about! We received about 6.5 inches of snow on Sunday! We haven't seen that much snow in Athens since 1983 and before that since 1942. I, on the other hand, have never seen that much snow. Here are a few pictures from our white weekend!

A view from our back porch:

Our electricity went out Sunday afternoon and was not restored until Tuesday morning. We passed the time by playing a lot of scrabble, being very silly, playing in the snow, and cuddling on the couch.

Here's a picture of Michael playing with the dogs in the snow. The puppies loved playing in the snow, but they were also very happy to come inside and warm up!

Here's a picture of us warming up. Please excuse my outfit in this picture. I was in my comfy clothes!
My only regret from this weekend is that I didn't get to go sledding. I did get to peg Michael with a snow ball, so I guess I can wait for our next snow to go sledding! :)

It's so funny when it snows in GA! All my UGA friends on facebook put up pics of the "Blizzard" in Athens. I heard it was the worst in Athens. It is so beautiful. I am slightly jealous!

I saw that much in Baltimore but it wasn't the same...I wish I had seen it before it had started to melt.

Your dogs are precious - they look just like our labs. Looks like ya'll had a good time in the snow. We never get snow either & actually got quite a bit for NOLA in December. :)

It was crazy, wasn't it?! I can't believe it, but I was a little happy when we didn't have work on Monday at all and on Tuesday 'til 10.

Snow is so pretty! I am ready for it all to be melted though and the 70 degree temps to get here! That's supposed to come tomorrow!!

Brr! That looks cold!

The snow was so pretty! They were calling for us to get 6 inches that day, but we got nothing at all. I was actually kind of upset. Don't worry about your "comfy clothes". I do the same thing and they are the best ever!

Jules said...

Great snow day pics! It looks so pretty and the dogs look like they're really enjoying it.

Gleatie said...

We still have about 2 inches on our front deck and it is getting VERY obnoxious trying to walk over in the mornings for work! It seaps into the sides of my shoes! :)

I just stumbled onto your blog! It is very cute.

Lydia Dustin said...

Hey Pink Chick great picks! I love to look at snow. I just hate actually interacting with the white cold crap as much as possible. Too bad I live in New England.

Piper Jacquelyn said...

Snow certainly is beautiful! And the doggies are cuddled up on the sofa?! Too cute!

Becky said...

Wow! That is so pretty..please send some our way to Texas it was in the 80's today! It's going to be a HOTT summer if it's like this!
