That Day We Thought Spring Had Sprung

Last week we had a nice snow storm. By *nice* I mean there was a whopping 8 inches of snow and the kids had a grand time playing. We do not get many snows that amount to real snowman making conditions.
It is one of the many things I love about Georgia.

Of course, my kids didn't build snowmen. I am the first to admit my kids can be strange. They instead built a snow hay bale. I am not joking either.

We had so much fun milking the cows and feeding chickens and checking eggs in this stuff. The dogs absolutely loved finding a spot to do their business and the geese couldn't figure out where to lay an egg.

Of course the upside to all of this was that Devin had just gotten a new farm toy the day before. I put him to work scooping out mounds of hay and muck from the barn stalls. I can assure you that we will get tons of use from this new tractor!

Within 2 days we had plenty of rain and sun to melt everything. The temps have slowly gone up and we enjoyed a balmy74 today! The windows were opened, the kids dug out shorts, and the frogs came out in huge numbers to sing. It was a beautiful spring day! It is amazing to me how a day of nice weather can perk a gloomy mood!

Well, they always say that if you don't like the weather in the South, just wait a day. My window is still open and I can hear the wind blowing and a cold rain moving in. Tomorrow the temps will drop into the 20's and we are expecting an inch of snow. Winter weather just 3 days before we switch back to Daylight Savings Time.

The frogs are not losing hope though and neither will I. Here's to one more week of cold weather and the promise of spring.

Happy Hump Day Ya'll!


  1. The giant snowballs must be a kid thing. I live in Michigan so snow is a regular occurrence, but if you drive by just about any elementary school after a good snow, there will be several huge snowballs out in the playground! Guess they just like to see how big they can get them.
    And ice is bad news, no matter where in the country you are!

  2. As a Southern girl myself, I couldn't imagine coping with snow once my heart is set on Springtime! The frogs' bellows and crickets' chirps overwhelm me with excitement for the promise of warm sun and evenings on the porch with a glass of sweet tea. Y'all seem to have weathered the late snowfall well; commendable!
