Winter in Alabama

I have lived in places where snow was just a part of life: Maryland, Ohio, Colorado . . . not so Alabama. Snow is something we see once a year when we watch "A Christmas Story" on TV. So everyone was giddy with anticipation for days before the storm was to come through. We've been teased this way before only to be let down. But last Sunday morning we woke up, looked out the window, and . . . S N O W!

And another:


True, it was pretty much all gone after lunch. But it was fun while it lasted! Today, you ask? Today it is 70 degrees and I am busy slapping myself because I have loaned my convertible to my stepson. There are always 2-3 perfect convertible weeks before it starts getting truly hot. Here's to hoping I don't miss those weeks.
