I finally got the pictures up. I had the GD today. She is now 15 months old, so my computer time was limited. 1. Frozen water from the tiny little bit of melting we had on Wednesday.
2. My sassafras tree.
3. Shrubs that I am hoping to plant in the next month. They are fine...soft hollies...they like cold weather.
4. The snow has a sheen to it because that is ice!
5. The birdbath - again. The birds have gone through lots of birdseed. The front yard is the local bird hang out...cardinals, juncos, chickadees, cedar waxwings, lincoln sparrows, blackbirds

It makes me "cold" just looking at the pictures! I have a brother who lives in
Sulligent, so I can imagine what his yard
looks like! We had a low in middle Georgia
this morning of 18 degrees, and the temp is
still not above freezing at mid morning! Oh, so ready for Spring blossoms, I am!! LOL

I am still snowed in. Had to shovel a path to the garage today so we could get to the car. It's all frozen now & ice. Got to get to Dr. in the morning or I wouldn't have been shoveling a path. We still have a lot of ice on the rds. & as it drops so low at night anything that thaws refreezes. Schools will start back on fri morning but they are delaying time till around 9 A.M.

I was able to shovel out the driveway and now it is clear and dry. That was quite a job.

Mel, too bad you didn't get the pictures up - but I do understand - it has to be awful for you to have to deal with this sort of a winter - however most of us do this every year here in Utah - but knowing that yo are in Alabama and that you don't - I do feel for you - when I lived in North Carolina - the average year round temperature was 70 degrees, but not this year. *4U

I am transplanted Northerner. We moved down here in 1985. I love snow, but down here it becomes a real hazard, as communities do not get enough of it to merit buying all the equipment needed for snow removal. By the weekend, we are supposed to have weather in the 50s and a bit of rain...that will melt all the white stuff.

Me too. This is so crazy. Though, it might kill all those pesky mosquitoes.

Well - Central Florida here, and it was 29 when I went in to work this AM, and the wind blowing. Thank goodness I don't have to sit outside. I think that we have had out share of winter weather - ready for some warm sunshine. We didn't get the snow, but most of us don't have the coats and boots to keep us warm if we do have to go outside. Stay warm!

Mel it is the same here too. Very cold. But Praise the Lord we have the sun out and it will slowly melt away the snow... (eventually)...

Our sun came out, and nothing happened...everything is still frozen.
Maybe tomorrow it will melt.
