Annual Snow Day

Here I was ready for March to bring spring. Apparently so were the plants because daffodils were already coming out and some trees were starting to show blooms. March 1st decided to take it back a step though – and SNOW!

Snow piling up in our backyard.

Snowed in back yard

The front of the house. I think I was just slightly too late because some of the snow was already turning back to slush.

Awwww, look at the gorgeous houses in our neighborhood! I heart Westview!

East Ontario Avenue snowed in

So what do you do on a snow day? (Besides excitedly taking pictures, of course.) You go strip the dining room. Not that we ever stopped, but definitely an encouraging day to continue. Maybe one day all the work will actually look like we made progress again, because at this point all the time consuming detail work certainly won’t show in photos. Sorry folks!

Snow Bungalow

I know people in the north are going to laugh at us, but….it snowed!! Atlanta like never has snow. Last night the news announced that there may be some sleet, but I think the snow wasn’t really supposed to come down as far as Atlanta. Well, sometime around 4:00pm I saw itty bitty flakes. Then it got harder, then it let down, then it got harder, then it let back down, etc. Eventually it came back with really large snow flakes! And at that point they were actually starting to stick! I think the last time I remember there being enough snow in Atlanta to do anything with was…uhmmm…7 years ago or something? And when I mean “do anything with” I mean like half an inch to an inch. Needless to say we were getting really excited about it! :)

Little flakes coming down earlier on.

The front of the house as the snow is starting to pick up a little more:

The snow got heavier as it got darker, but unfortunately it was too dark to take pictures anymore. But all the ground was pretty well covered (for Atlanta standards) by 7:00pm! Then it turned into rain and I think by morning nothing will be left. Well, that was our annual snow day, I guess! Haha. :)
