Snow! (kinda)

Yesterday they sent all students and teachers in the metro area home at noon. I rode my bicycle home in the really cold rain, stopped at the insanely packed grocery store, and was in my pajamas by 1:30. In keeping with Atlanta's recent attempts to make up for the time they really messed up their weather forecasting, snow didn't actually begin until after 9:00. And, even then it was not particularly overwhelming. See below.
Maybe half an inch. Still, we had a Georgia-snow time. Cousin Walker had spent the night (that's him running toward Millie above) and our neighbors came over in the morning for some winter sport. First up: ice skating!
No joke: at least three kids slipped on that tiny patch of ice before the games began. Next up was sledding. How optimistic is Matt here? That's a serious sled for Atlanta.
Some sledding did occur. One of the kids noted, however, that it worked better once the snow was brushed aside and the sled was running straight on the grass. So, maybe not necessarily a winter sport?
Last: ice climbing. That's our mulch pile peeking out from under the mountain of snow there.
Happy Snow Day 2016, folks! Something tells me we'll all be going to school on Monday...
