We’re in Columbus.  Yesterday it was 70 degrees and thundering.  This morning there is about 2 inches of snow on the ground and it’s 34 degrees.  What is up with this weather?

I think it’s sticking around through tonight at least. Atlanta’s under severe weather warning until midnight. There’s already several inches in VA-Highlands! All winter with no snow, and now in March! Crazy, especially after yesterday’s t-shirt weather!

I grew up in Alpharetta and got married there too. The weather in February is always like this. There will be two weeks of nice weather, where is gets warm and all the flowers on the trees bloom, and then boom! It will freeze in the first week of March and all the flowers die. I watched it happen so many years growing up. Our big blizzard in ’93 was in March too. 🙂

I’m from Alpharetta also! (Transplanted in DC, but having my wedding in Norcross…) The last "big" snow I saw was the Blizzard of 93. My mom and I were talking about that on the phone this morning.

About the snow and thunder — it’s actually a weather phenomenon called thundersnow (instead of a thunderstorm). Y’all’s storm is headed to us in DC (and hopefully bring 6-12 inches of snow with it) and I’m crossing my fingers for some thundersnow. It’s just so wonky…

It’s sticking here… Looks like it’s moving into Atlanta.  I’m just waiting for my cell to ring begging me to come to work tonight.

@bellenga….are you seriously still getting rain?  Ours (we’re between 13 & 14) has turned from thundersnow to HUGE snow flakes that are starting to stick on our deck?  Which side of 400 are you on?

@crabcake… my doctor friend in Alex City just got the "summons" to work for the evening….so perhaps turn your cell off? 😉

I’m leaving mine on, but thankfully I’m not on call, so I don’t have to go in if I don’t want to.  It’s just that there’s a large river here (Chattahoochee!) and half of us live on the Alabama side (me included) so no one is going to want to have to brave the drive across the river.  We’re completely avoiding leaving the house.  Mr. and Mini CC went and played for a while.  I’m a bad mom, no gloves on Mini…but they were only out there for about 20 minutes. 

The snow is slacking off now.  I’m guessing the roads are about to start freezing.  We were supposed to meet with our dance instructor today.  I don’t think that’s going to happen.
