Happiness is.... SNOW!!!!

If you live in metro Atlanta then you can recall the "snowmagedon", "big blizzard", or "snowpocalypse" that occurred at the beginning of the year.   The 'Snowmageddon' storm as referred to by President Obama was the biggest snowstorm in nearly 90 years and was the 2nd, 3rd and even 4th significant winter storm for some parts of the Mid Atlantic states this winter season.

During the storm people rushed to the stores to load up on bread and milk.



Schools closings, flight cancellations, and power outages were everywhere. Hundreds of vehicle accidents were reported and many people got stranded on the highways.

It was total chaos, yet the whole world made fun of us. Many people don't seem to understand how and why southerners in the US act as they do when it snows.

I'll tell you, you see is just that when it snows in the south it means ice roads the next day and this is extremely dangerous.

 Last night with just a simple rain 1,000 accidents were reported in metro Atlanta. That is a HUGE number!!


Yet, the southerners always dream of having a snow day. We look forward with eager anticipation. There is something magical about waking up to a winter wonderland.


 I love peaking trough my window just to discover theres a lovely 
blanket of crystal white snow covering the landscape. It just looks
 so whimsical and pretty. 

Although snow can sometimes bring lots of headaches. It can also be the source of great joy and happiness.

I am praying for a white Christmas this year. One day is all I need. Is just that when I see pictures like these and watch videos like the ones below I am overwhelmed with nostalgia. What do you think should Atlanta have a white Christmas? I say YES!!!

From our family to yours we wish everyone a Merry Christmas and may this festival bring abundant joy and happiness in your life! May joy and happiness snow on you, may the bells jingle for you and may Santa be extra good to you! Merry Christmas!
