I’m happy to report this morning that the second edition of “Winters we aren’t supposed to have in Georgia” is almost over.
Let’s hope there isn’t a third edition.
Come on sunshine….
Mercy Bruce, that looks like my greenhouse, snow and all. I think you guys are forecast in the 60’s late next week anyway
Ha. It will melt off a good bit today. This storm is well past us now.
Meanwhile, in New Yawk, they forecast 4″ or so of snow from that storm, but this morning it was coming down at 3″ per HOUR, and we’ve got about 10″ on the ground (on top of the Permasnow that’s been hanging around). Brief thaw this afternoon and evening is contributing some lovely sleet and freezing rain, just enough to get a good ice crust going and turn the curbsides into lakes of slush: then we’re supposed to get another 2″-6″ tonight.
I’m sure glad I have my NEOS overshoes! (srsly, check them out: they’re the bomb. Lightweight and waterproof, still going strong after 10 years).
Down here we rednecks all have dedicated insulated/ waterproof hunting boots. We don’t use or need overshoes as Realtree Camo is considered quite acceptable in both high and low society strata.
That is a wild photo, snow in Georgia! Does anyone even own a plow down there? Was there a run on bread an milk when that storm blew through? HA!
Haha. You know the answers to all of those, this is a predictable lot down here whenever snow is forecast.
Well, now your garden & hoop house look more like mine! Although we’ve had some warmer days recently so I have a lot of melted snow standing on the ice underneath & the frozen ground…. My daughter tended my animals while I was traveling for a funeral & she sent me photos of “Lake Willow Creek” (so named by her…. Willow Creek is the creek that runs on my place spring through fall)
How did your artichoke fare? Or, how did Mrs. Cohutt’s artichoke fare?
They both did fine, as this storm’s temps were much milder (lows in mid to upper 20s) than those of two weeks prior (-1 low).
It was sunny and 45 by 1:00 that afternoon and much of the snow was melted away by then, very quick this time.
