Default Snow in February in the "Sunny South"

This weather is crazy - snow in this part of the world in February???????

I've got daffodils coming up and bluebirds (the real ones) in my bluebird houses. Supposed to be 3-5 inches before 1:00 PM.

We're bracing for it to hit Atlanta this afternoon. We only expect to get about 2" here. But, I think it will be even less in the northern suburbs. Currently, in Alpharetta (where I work), there's no snow coming down at this point.

It must be El-Nino or global warming or the Al Gore Rythm or something else weird. Until Wednesday we had not had enough snow to make it worthwhile firing up the old JD. Way up here we are way behind on snow for the year, for some strange reason you are stopping it all in Dixie. Go ahead, send it north. All the plow drivers are going broke this year. Just a bit on the evening news about how all the local municipalities are a hundred grand or more under budget for clearing the streets this year. Of course we don't expect to see a refund in the old tax bill this winter.

Four inches and counting on the mountain (1100 feet MSL) where I live - a little less in lower elevations.

Courthouse closed, court cancelled, nothing to do - roads closed, can't drive the four miles to get to my bird (at least I could be doing some house cleaning there.) I'm bored.

I don't know how you "blizzard land" folks handle it.

Tommy,

I have come to the conclusion that it's all what you are used to. I come from northern Indiana, we have our cold temps, currently single digits at night, and we have about a foot of snow on the ground now. But I have to say that the most miserable winter I ever spent was in Fort Gordon, GA in 1965. No matter what I did I couldn't stay warm at night. It wasn't until about noon that I was comfortable and as soon as the sun went down it started all over again. That cold just cut right through me like a knife. I assume it must have been the dampness, I don't know. I was very happy to get to someplace warmer, when we left. Of course that happiness went away real fast!

We had about 4 inches on Tuesday afternoon, followed by another 6 overnight. Spent a couple of hours on the tractor plowing our drive and my neighbor's drive, after that not much to it. It's pretty much a non-event. Schools close, of course, but everything else is open and normal.
The squirrels that eat all the birdseed I put out get so fat they can't get through the snow to the trees fast enough when the hawks show up, so I shovel a path from the feeder to the trees for them. Hate to have them turn into hawk chow. My spousal unit gets a big charge relating that to friends when we have a beverage or two.
So I will head out to the park this afternoon and spend an hour or two on my cross country skiis. Tonight, after cooking some salmon on the grill (right outside the back door on the patio) and having a glass of wine or two with it, fire in the fireplace, and watch the Olympics on the tube.
We tend to not get too excited about a foot or less of the white stuff.

Bill if I didn't know better I'd swear your post was from a Canuk. That's the way we handled the 'snow days' back before I heard about snowbirding.

Bill,

You may want to add your location to your permanent signature, so that folks will know what part of the country you are from, or are you holding that as a secret, after all Bill and Patty Pape claim that state......................they just don't spend the winter up there
