We don't often receive snow in the south and when it arrives, it truly cripples the city and metro areas surrounding it. We don't have plows or sand/salt trucks, we don't have snow shovels (I've never had to shovel sunshine while living here). So when it begins to snow, you learn to wait it out and let mother nature catch up with her gentle heat from the next day's sunshine to melt it all away. These are the photos of the snow storm we received on Friday afternoon into the late evening. (all photos enlarge upon clicking them)
The tops of the trees from the view on my back deck.
My neighbor's deck is covered in snow.
The branches on this tree are heavy with wet snowfall.
Just returned from picking up family from the train station. It snowed through the night and I took this shot from my driveway looking at the falling snow against the street light.
Fine tree branches become three times their size from the wet snow that would stick to them. It snowed throughout most of the night.
Crisp blue sky and the sound of loud, popping and crunching snow as a few 4-wheel drive owners made their way down the neighborhood streets early morning. It was a winter wonderland not often seen here.
The view from my front door.
This Yankee gal needed fresh bagels so I hit the streets with my vehicle and headed out. Thick ice was everywhere but bagels called so off I go.
