is it christmas?


the unbelievable has happened in new orleans and the surrounding areas. it snowed!!! real, heavy, sticky snow that stuck to the ground. out where i live, about 90 miles north of new orleans, we had at least 3 inches, probably closer to 4. there is still snow on the ground now and this happened on thursday. it was amazingly beautiful but i didn't have power all day so instead of being able to sip my tea and watch through the window i was curled up in bed most of the day trying to stay warm. it was definitely a sight to see!

Wow - I heard you got snow, but I didn't realize how much. Did it shut the city down?

Seems like everybody is getting snow right now! Strange winter so far...but a very pretty one!

How rare is this kind of snowfall for you?

the snow kind of did shut the city down, it wasn't really too icy but it really never snows here so people just aren't prepared for those kind of driving conditions--it actually was quite warm, above 32 degrees for the most part. i don't really think it has EVER snowed like that here, we have had light snow but it usually never sticks and we had inches. crazy!!
