Georgia Snowpocalypse 2014

I'm sure y'all have heard about how Atlanta has completely shut down because of the "sudden" snow and ice storm. Traffic was so awful, a woman gave birth on 285! Two days later, and people are STILL trying to get home! Daddy left at 2 on Tuesday to pick up my sister and TEN hours later, they got home. Mama took 6 hours to get home on what's normally a 20 minute ride. Jared left work and had to ditch the car 6 miles from home and walk in the snow and ice. Luckily, one nice woman gave him a lift for one of the miles, so he didn't have to walk all six. My brother-in-law walked 9 miles home from work. In spite of all the horrific traffic and awful accidents, I'm really proud of how our community banded together and showed true Southern hospitality. This Buzzfeed article shows some of that!

Once my family was all where they were supposed to be, I managed to calm down a little bit, and Jared and I enjoyed the pretty snow.

This instagram photo shows how pretty our house is in the winter! 


This is our backyard before the snow covered everything. 













Their faces kill me!


Ophelia is so regal in the snow!


Ian gave me this gnome for my birthday. He's got a bowl full of snow!


It's times like these that show people's true colors, and I'm proud of how our communities opened their doors to help each other.

*Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to wish me happy birthday today on various social media sites. I see and appreciate every single one!*
