Snow in the South rarely occurs and even more rare is more than a dusting but we actually got a decent snow! The kids had begged for us to visit my sister and brother in law in Maine so they could see all the snow. This is the first winter my sister has lived in Maine and she sends us a lot of snow pictures. Patrick has always wanted to go sledding so we decided to take a winter trip to get the best chance of snow. We were on our way to the airport when Delta called and reported our flight had been cancelled because of the threat of snow in the southern states. The shuttle dropped us off at the curbside check in and it was confirmed.. delta had cancelled over 400 flights beginning at 9 A.M. Our flight was scheduled for 10:15. Seriously!! It was 40 degrees, clear and sunny in Maine and we, Alabamians that is, were expecting snow. We headed home with two very disappointed boys. We took our time and stopped to eat breakfast and did some grocery shopping in Atlanta. When we reached Villa Rica, GA...the snow started and whatya know...it continued for hours! By the time we reached home we were covered in snow. It was the most I had seen since '93 and the boys have never seen this much. I didn't measure it but it was maybe 3". We had a blast with snowball fights, building snowmen, and eating snow cream! We were still pretty bummed about missing our trip to Maine but we got our snow fix for the year. We are hoping to plan another trip to Maine soon to see two of our favorite people, Tonja and Dwight.
