Outdoor Wednesday

I decided to interrupt my regular WIP Wednesday post today to participate in Outdoor Wednesday. Thanks to Susan for organizing this fun event every week! Hop over to Susan's blog to view other Outdoor Wednesday participants.

This is what we came home to after church on Sunday. It started snowing during our church service - no warning - it was raining when we started off to church in the morning. I was standing on my front porch taking this picture.
Yes, family and friends back home in Washington reading this....
This is SNOW! In GEORGIA! In the month of MARCH! Can you tell I am surprised?
Living in Washington, this is not so unusual. I have only lived in Georgia since June and haven't experienced all of the dfferent seasons here yet. We can have 70 degree days one week and snow the next! I am sure the spring flowers coming up are very confused! :-)

It was such a beautiful sight though. All was so quiet! Huge snowflakes drifting softly to the ground!

A perfect excuse to spend the day indoors on a lazy Sunday afternoon. We cozied up to a warm fire, watched movies and ate popcorn. The neighborhood children played outdoors and made snowmen that lined our street. (wish I had taken a picture - it was so cute!) The next day the snow was gone and it is starting to warm up again. Will we have more? Who can say - I will just sit back and enjoy the new season experiences of living in a new state!

Welcome to Georgia and unpredictable weather. Who knows if we will have more. In 1993 we had 24 inches on march 13, but that was the exception! Have a great day!

Welcome to Outdoor Wednesday Kymber!Your snow pictures are beautiful! We don't get snow in Georgia very often...perhaps once every 5-10 we get excited when we do! Thanks for sharing your photos.

I think the weather's been pretty nutty all over the US this winter, but snow in Georgia in March surely must be among the nuttiest.

We had 9 inches Monday, but that's not unusual for New Jersey in March; it's when we get our blizzards!

What a lovely neighborhood!

These are such pretty pictures. I especially love the warm, cozy fireplace with the winterscape windows on either side. What a great day to curl up with a book and cup of cocoa. Kathy
