The coldest day of the year

This morning while driving the kids to school the temperature was 19° F at 9 a.m. It was snowing heavily but the sun was shining as well. The sun caused the snow to sparkle like glass as it was swirling in the breeze. It was like being on the inside of a snow globe.

This is probably not unusual for those of you that live in snowier climes. For me, it was quite remarkable.

    I envy you all the snow. I keep praying it will make it over the mountains and across the border to us here in Atlanta everytime I hear you guys are getting snow (or flurries or heck anything remotely close to snow).

    Pictures next time please. Would love to see your “snow globe” view

    Invites are always out there for friends and family. But do expect to gain 10 lbs eating the food Kat and I cook.
