Observations of a southern snow

“Never trust to general impressions, my boy, but concentrate yourself upon details.”
― Arthur Conan Doyle

Images taken during the beautiful yet crippling Georgia snow–
As I post these images, there are still individuals who have yet to make it home. The storm arrived higher and earlier than anticipated, leaving thousands scrambling to depart both work and home–all at the same time creating a traffic nightmare. Snow is one thing, but brutally cold temperatures wickedly turn the gentle white blanket into a sheet of deceiving ice.

Prayers to all who were stuck in the traffic gridlock which Atlanta became. . .forcing so very many to spend long cold nights in cars and buses—witnessing schools turning into 24 hour care centers for the hundreds of students, throughout the state, who were unable to leave school for home.

But behind the misery lies a frozen world of magic. . .

    So lovely! Thanks for sharing. I miss the cardinals here out west…

  3. Beautiful photos and such true words. Later this year, when people look back on this storm, they will more likely remember the sense of wonderment at their transformed surroundings than the frustration or inconvenience caused.

    We have the sheets of ice. Anyone for an icee? Love your photos. Not that pretty here 😦

  5. Beautiful snow pictures Julie! 🙂 I had a friend that was stuck in the Atlanta area, she left to go home at 1:00 PM and got home at 1:05 AM!! Crazy… she had to walk the last mile to get home too.

    Looks like the birds are enjoying the birdseed, they look cold! Love the robin and red cardinal. I hiked the mountain a little this morning looking for wildlife tracks but didn’t find anything but raccoon and fox tracks. We had a little more than 3 inches of snow with a 1/2 layer of ice on the bottom. I had to wear my Yaktrax to keep from falling, it was frozen over and slick. 😉

  6. Great pics, Cookie. I pray you all are safe and warm. Hugs, Natalie 🙂
