Day 891's surprise
We woke up to a fun little surprise on Saturday morning: a dusting of snow!
You people with real winters and real snow will probably scoff at this, but hey, this is the Deep South. We get excited about snow, in any amount.
Luckily, this one came without much warning, so there was none of the usual snow-hysteria and the grocery store shelves we not depleted of milk, eggs, and bread.
Of course, the sun was out by 10am, and it was pretty much gone by 11. I was glad I headed out a seven to at least snap a few pictures of what could very well be the only snow we see all season. (I love this tree. Too bad the power lines are in the way!)
But it sure was nice to have our French toast and (not very photogenic) breakfast casserole while feeling like it was actually winter.
