I’m figuring things should be booming sometime around October, which will be nine months after this winter’s biggest snow event so far. The news was reporting that there was snow on the ground in every state except Florida on one day in mid January, when even parts of the deep South were socked in.
Making the Most of It!
Cities like Atlanta aren’t equipped to handle significant amounts of snow, and we had about three inches on the ground (it might as well have been three feet!), and snow and ice covered the streets. Nobody went anywhere for almost an entire week. Cabin fever gripped the city, but we’re confident lots of couples found a romantic way to pass the time.
Local TV and radio meteorologists like to give weather events like this one a memorable name. Some called it “Snowmageddon 2011”, others named it “Snowpocalypse 2011”, and my favorite was “Pain in the Ice 2011.” No matter what it’s called, we’re confident lots of folks will be looking for fall and winter baby gifts later this year as a result of it.
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
I’m like a kid when it comes to snow. Snow makes the world look beautiful, it’s fun to play in–and sometimes (like this time!) schools and businesses have to close. Aside from going stir-crazy after a couple of days at home, I don’t see a down side. (You’d be amazed at how many people don’t agree with me!)
Great photos of folks enjoying the snow showed up on blogs, on Facebook, on TV and a few other places. Here are a few I really liked!
