The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?

Yeppers, snow in south central Georgia!!!

Check out the size of the snowflakes... see the one over my right shoulderGreetings and salutations! Well, as reported, we did actually get a brief snow flurry here in south Central Georgia on Friday evening. You see in this shot, the snowflake over my right shoulder and a very happy wonderful groom (he was giddy--can tell he's from the south). As much as I grumble about snow, it truly was a masterpiece, as huge (half dollar sized) flakes poured out of the sky. My wonderful groom and I were struck by the stillness, the quietness that seemed to surround us, which felt almost surreal. It started at about 6:55, frozen rain/slushy sleet was falling, as we were driving away with our carry out from Valdosta, headed home to watch our shows online. I called it into the weather service. Then, just as I hung up, it turned to snow. It was magnificent to watch it change over to snow. As slushy rain turned to a fury of big brilliant snowflakes in a raging downpour of snow. Even in the dark, they were easy to see. The doggone dog didn't know what to do with himself... notice the snow on the groundAs we drove, it took on almost a tunnel-effect as snow flew toward us and raced past us. We were both laughing and smiling at the wonder of it. Given that it was a night event, the pictures aren't as great as I had hoped, and there was no accumulation here. It pretty much melted on contact, though in the picture with the doggone dog, you can see some flakes still on the ground. My wonderful groom thought it was funny that after I was out "playing" in the snow, I had accumulation on my head, looking like some crazy dandruff. (Interestingly, the entire state of Georgia saw snow on Friday, and from what I hear 49 of our 50 states had snow... crazy. Al Gore, you know what you can do with your Global Warming theory...)

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day, like my wonderful groom and I did. We decided to get all dolled up for a nice dinner in town. It was yummy and the leftovers made great omelet filling. :D The only disappointment was that they didn't have a great selection of desserts, which is my weakness... and I was kind of looking forward to sweets with my sweet.

This morning's sunrise was an amazing start to a Monday. The cloud base was all rugged, and the texture was pulling in the colors of the rising sun beautifully, as the golden glow rose into the morning sky. Breathtaking!Hope your day is as beautiful as mine started!


  1. Driving thru snowfall at night is always a trip. Like going "light speed" in a Star Wars movie. :)

  2. That's exactly what it was like!!!

  3. Awww, that is so cool chica!

    I absolutely can understand Bill's giddiness, having never seen snow but once... In Miami of all places!

    I love that I can keep up now from phone, this is awesome.

  5. I enjoyed watching the time-lapse movie from Baltimore of the patio table and picnic chairs build up that day too!

    We had the tunnel effect last night driving around Hamburg NY, south of Buffalo, but then, we see it more often than you!
