Snowmageddon - Maddie

Atlanta, Georgia finally got some snow! In fact, the 2-3 inches brought the city to a screeching halt. People from snowy places laugh, but Atlanta just is not prepared to treat the roads when we only get snow maybe one or two days a year... if at all.

For whatever reason, no one really prepared for the approaching snow. Everyone had gone to work and school so when the snow started, everyone left at the same time and the roads became a disaster. Daily commutes turned into overnight trips for some people. Cars were abandoned because of the traffic or they simply could not move on the ice. I was lucky. My commute was 2 and half hours... very short compared to others and then we enjoyed being snowed in for two days.

I was disappointed that we did not get a single day of snow last year when Maddie was a puppy. I wanted puppy snow pictures! But at 19 months of age, Maddie did not disappoint and had a great time playing in the snow.

As I type this, we are waiting for another snowfall or possible ice storm. I am working at home tomorrow and as long as we have electricity it will be Fun Fun!

Love that Maddie is loving the snow! Maybe she should come visit us up in Snowville. She might enjoy our 3 feet of snow for a day or two vacation! Snow pictures ARE wonderful though. I was glad to finally get some for the opposite reason to you... we finally had a warm enough day to take the camera out! hee hee

That is what my kids look like on the first day of snow every winter. Then they are SO over it!
