Snow

Posted by on Jan 19, 2008 in personal | Comments Off

So, it started snowing here about an hour ago. We were supposed to get snow a few days ago, but nothing materialized. Anyway, today we are definitely going to get snow – since it is already snowing. It is supposed to snow all night and into the early morning hours. Also, the temperature is supposed to drop into the 20’s. They are saying that the snow should stick around until at least Monday.

We talked to Margaret’s parents earlier this morning. It was snowing in Alabama then. According to the new reports, this was their first snow since 1993 – that’s fourteen years ago! We remember that snow vividly. It snowed on December 22, 1993 – the day that Jeremy was born. We were in the hospital watching it snow out the window. I think it also snowed the spring before, but I don’t remember the exact date. Snow is rare in Alabama.

If we have any accumulation, I’ll put some pictures on here. Also, I hope to post some pictures from our travels to Alabama and Georgia over Christmas and New Years.
