This was our bit of snow in Marietta, GA.

This was our snow for the winter at our apartment complex. We were happy as children to see the snow falling but it melted so fast we didn’t have time to run out and buy milk and bread as we usually do when it starts to snow.Some areas did have enough snow to make snowmen. As you can see the snow was melting by the time it hit the ground. It did get cold during the night and for a few days. The lowest temprature was 20 degrees, so says our weather man.  The kids were hoping for a snow day but it didn’t happen. 

I was glad enough to see the end of it and now our weather is back in the 50’s and we are expecting a nice warm 70 degrees on Saturday. I plan to go to the park and get some good walking time in. We go to the work-out room to walk the treadmills but it doesn’t compare with walking the trails and seeing trees beginning to leaf out and hearing the creek trickleing over the rocks. As you can see I love the outdoors. 

 The scene below is what the kids hoped for and I might as well admit it. It’s what the kid in all of us wanted. Well, to bad. Maybe next year. We do get a snow fall every few years of 4 to 6 inches and maybe next year will be the year.

    I think we all love the snow at heart. We have had our fair share this winter. It even brought the south of England to a standstill yesterday morning. We are never prepared. I enjoyed the piece and loved the pics.

    Excellent article Ruby I love the pics as well as the story. I could certainly help you in the snow department where I live lol. If we didn’t get it every year I would miss it, it’s beautiful

    A very well written piece and it is too bad that the snow melted faster than it hit the ground. Michael

    We got snow here in NC last Sunday night and it was enough for the kids to build a snowman. They also got two days off from school, which thrilled them.

    I really like to experience playing with the snow and make a snow man. Unfortunately I’m living in S.E. Asia where snow rarely comes… I liked the pictures.

    Nice. White pristine snow is so beautiful. We had lots of snow here in Finland. In fact I’m waiting for it to melt. Had enough of it.

  • Joe Dorish on Mar 6, 2009

    We got a foot of snow last week and you are welcome to all of it :) Been a weird winter where I live as we got 10 inches of snow 1 week before Halloween for the first time ever. We had the wettest January in about 60 years and the driest February in 20 years and the foot of snow was a March record for that date.

  • Katien on Mar 6, 2009

    I know what you mean. I always feel cheated when the snow doesn’t settle!

  • Rask Balavoine on Mar 6, 2009

    Belfast’s under snow too but it’s on it’s way out – I hope. 70 degrees Ruby? What’s that?!? Looks like we’re in for yet another wet, dank, dismal summer, 70 degrees is our fantasy.

  • CutestPrincess on Mar 6, 2009

    beautiful photo’s i want to experience snow also…

  • Kate Smedley on Mar 6, 2009

    Lovely article, the snow does bring the kid out in all of us. Great photos too.

  • Joni Keith on Mar 6, 2009

    Oh, Ruby, we are all children at heart. Having been born and raised in California, I always felt the same as you about snow. But after three years of living in Ohio,I think I\’ve had more than enough. Great article.

  • Vikram Chhabra on Mar 6, 2009

    We had a foot where I live and I just at times find myself staring at the snow on the trees and on the ground…Thanks for posting this!!

  • lindalulu on Mar 6, 2009

    Looks very pretty Ruby, but Iam sure Georgia was not happy with this white dusting.

  • Unofre Pili on Mar 6, 2009

    Thanks for sharing maam. We don’t have snow in the Philippines.

  • valli on Mar 6, 2009

    Lovely article and images.

  • Shirley Shuler on Mar 6, 2009

    Hi Ruby, I love the snow too, we had lots of snow in Pennsylvania!!

  • NA Staffieri on Mar 6, 2009

    Here in South Jersey, we are still thawing out of the 12 inches of snow we received on Monday. Snow is great until you have to drive through it.

  • rutherfranc on Mar 7, 2009

    I`m in California too so we drive up to Big Bear to get some taste of snow..

  • Anne Lyken Garner on Mar 7, 2009

    I hadn’t realised that it snowed in Georgia.

  • jo oliver on Mar 7, 2009

    Thanks for the pics. I saw on the news that kids were playing in snow in Ga, and I had to stop and say “huh” “snow in Ga.”

  • denus on Mar 7, 2009

    that looks beautiful!

  • Chelsea A Miller on Mar 7, 2009

    Never looked at snow that way I guess when you live in new york and it snows quite often,you don’t miss what you already have.Untill its gone ofcourse.

  • PR Mace on Mar 7, 2009

    Loved the picture. We only got freezing cold nights with ice on our windshield, no snow in Florida this year. Today it is 72 degree. Hope you got your walk in the park today.

  • Ruby Hawk on Mar 7, 2009

    I don’t envy you people with all the snow. I like a little bit but I don’t want it to stay long.We had temprature of 70 today and I loved it. My granddaughter and I went out to the pool with our books and had a quiet read in the sun. Little leaves are popping out red everywhere. We went to Sarah’s house to pick her up and James was working on his mustang. He gave me a short ride and it is a powerful car. Thanks to all you good folks for your comments. I appreciate you as always.
