Snow in Atlanta

Mar 06, 2009 by Janine
I was lucky to arrive in Atlanta early Sunday morning, just before the snow hit. An icy sort of rain was starting up just as I got to the Georgia Aquarium. A few hours later, when I was ready to walk back to my hotel, I was faced with this:

These were the first real snowmen I had ever seen. I tried my hand at making one but decided it was too cold and gave up.

This was the view outside of my hotel room, facing onto the pool deck.

It was interesting walking in the snow and ice and 30+mph winds but at least I didn't have far to go. Apparently this much snow, and staying below freezing for almost two days, is not typical for Atlanta, especially this late in the year. Being a Florida native, it was highly unusual for me. But, the weather warmed up as the week went on, which was nice. At least I got to try out some of my new cold weather gear.

Anyway I am back home safely and will be posting Aquarium pics this week, only a few hundred to sort through :)
