Snow in Georgia

March 1st, 2009

I went outside and took some photos:
Neighbor's trees:



Trees along the back of our property:

This is Dale, the Oak tree:

Re: Snow in Georgia

Tigre peeking out of the barn. She wouldn't stay inside and was shivering violently out in the snow. We closed her in the barn with a manger full of hay and a water bucket. We used two towels to rub her dry and fluff up her hair. As soon as her coat dries it will insulate her from the cold and digesting hay will warm her from the inside.


My Snow Cat, Squirrely-Jo:



The size of the snowflake on her shoulder is how big most of the flakes were.

Re: Snow in Georgia

Beautiful, Heidi! Love the one of Dale, where you can see all the huge flakes. And Squirelly-Jo is just adorable
I'm glad Tigre will be warm.

It was that heavy here, around mid morning.

Re: Snow in Georgia

I took these photos in the afternoon. In the late morning it was sleet pellets slicing down and then it changed to small flakes of snow and then huge floaters just drifting down, then it went back to smaller flakes driven before the wind. The wind knocked most of the snow out of the trees so I am glad I took photos when I did.

Re: Snow in Georgia

I turned the horse out about 11am and she took off like a shot! Bucking, snorting, running and farting, kicking snow up behind her flagged tail streaming behind her...I wish I had brought my camera with me. She then dropped and rolled numerous times. Like, a dozen! I saw about half of them and then could count the snow-angels (snow-mares?) all over the corral.

I watched her closely to be sure she wasn't rolling due to colic, but no...she just seemed entranced and invigorated with the snow. She would walk/gait along with her head down, pushing her wiggling upper lip through the snow (all 6" of it) and snort it out her nostrils and then drop to her knees, then her belly and then she'd flop over on her side to roll. I saw her roll completely OVER three different times. Then she'd leap up and go running/bucking around the corral, she was really enjoying herself!

I'm about to head outside to shovel the driveway so the sun/wind can dry it and we won't have ice to deal with when Hubby comes home from work.

Re: Snow in Georgia

Dale looks so majestic all decked out in white, and S. Jo looks ready for the ball in black and white.

I'm glad that the wind knocked off the snow so that there were no downed trees.

Unfortunately not soon enough for my friend. She is about 6mi away and has 11 acres, mostly in horse pastures, but she was pulling downed limbs off her chicken coop and had to get out the chainsaw to remove a tree that fell across the fenceline.
It is a never ending job maintaining things when you are a home/property owner.

By the time I went out to shovel, more than half had melted away, so my job was easier in that I had less to do....but the melting also made each shovel-full much heavier than it needed to be. I'm wondering what my back is going to say to me tonight?
