All that Glitters is snow!

I moved to Georgia almost eight years ago, and that was the last time it snowed here...well like this anyway!

I realize most of you have gotten way more snow from this storm than we did but, we were pretty excited about our 4" here! It started snowing around 2:00 on Friday afternoon. When I left work at 5:00 it was beautiful. It did, however, take me nearly an hour to get home. By the time I got off the interstate I almost couldn't see. It took Heath over an hour to get home as well.

Saturday morning we woke up to a beautiful winter wonderland. When I first opened the door and Jackson looked out he went crazy barking. He was so upset by it but, once we went outside I had to drag him back in. Both Odie and Jackson LOVED the snow. They ran and played forever in it. Odie finally figured out he could eat the snow and that made for even more entertainment for them. They were running around biting at the snow. Odie also decided he liked having snowballs thrown at him. He would wait for you to throw one, then run like crazy and circle back around for you to do it again.

The sun is out and super bright, so the snow is melting fast. By the time Heath headed out to work at 12:00 it was already starting to disappear. I can't help but to keeping looking out the window the beauty of it is amazing to me. So, thank you God for snow! What a fun way to start a vacation!!!
