40 years ago today, it snowed here! It was an event, because snow is a rare occurrence here in middle/south Georgia. We received over a foot of snow! Mama says that during the night, Daddy got up to look outside. He called Mama to come look at how beautiful and peaceful everything was. That is a special memory to my Mama.
Daddy told us to look really good, because we would probably never see this much snow again here. He was right, it has not happened again here.
There have been times that we have gotten a couple of inches, but never close to a foot of snow.
This is the only picture that I have, but it is amazing to see this much snow in our area. Daddy is holding my youngest brother, he was 2 years old then. He put his hand into the snow and began to cry, saying that the snow had "bit" him. He was only a toddler then, and did not understand. Snow was a new experience for all of us, we would have played outside as often as my parents allowed. School was closed, that was also an important event to me!
