I remember it wasn’t too many years ago that we were saying “if the weatherman predicts snow in the south, it will never happen!” But through technology advancement, the weathermen are pretty accurate these days. They can usually predict the timing of it but not the exact locations.
In Alabama we usually get a dusting of snow on one or two occasions every winter, but the dustings won’t even hide the grass (or leaves if we are talking about MY yard). But then every couple or three years we will get a decent amount of snow, 3 or 4 inches or maybe even 6! Once we even got 10.
It will usually happen in January but it has been known to happen in March or even April. Our weather bounces back and forth from winter to summer and back again before spring hits.
It is most common for it to start out as rain and then change into snow, making for that icy snow. And a lot of times it rains after the snow and so any that may have accumulated will just disappear.
Snow tends to fall at night here. I guess the temperatures are more favorable after dark. But that means I don’t get to enjoy watching it fall.
We almost never get snow in December.
But this year, it came on December 8.
And it was suppose to only be a dusting, but we got about 4 inches.
And it was fluffy. No rain in sight!
It started around 6 am and continued all day. So I got to watch it falling.
The office closed, so I was free to watch, and take pictures, and walk around, and just ENJOY.
Snow before Christmas!
Are you a snow fan or do you loathe it?
