….Except when it’s not.

A sufficiently adequate March snowstorm kind of blanketed much of Alabama starting in the wee hours of Sunday morning.

Does this snow angel make me look fat?

"Does this snow angel make me look fat?" Birmingham-Hoover Metro, March 1, 2009

It’s roughing up Georgia now forcing some flights out of Atlanta to be canceled.  The roads mostly stayed clear, but 1 to 4 inches accumulated off-road, and more than 210 churches decided to forgo services because Southerners should never drive in snow.

Ever.

The March snowfall brought back memories of a huge storm in 1993 that shutdown the Birmingham metro area for days.  Forecasters dubbed it “The Snowfall of the Century” with parts of the area receiving around 18 inches of snow.

I remember!  Downed powerlines everywhere.  Downed trees.  No salt trucks.  Sister stuck at her home over the mountain with a 3 month old baby and no electricity.  It sucked.

This storm was much more manageable, and we made the most of it here at home.

    • You know it! I felt like a less talented you posting this. If I was you, I’d have put some squat in that shot up the hill. 😀

    • Maybe! Just think of it…poor folks gettin’ treatments for cancer and shit. It could really get humane in these parts.

  1. Hey, writechic! I’ll be posting my own snow photos tomorrow too. It’s snowing like a bear here in NC … punctuated with the occasional thunder and lightning … weird.

    And what do we love best about snow in “the south” (if you don’t count the mountains as part of “the south”)? That, by Saturday, it’s supposed to be back up in the mid to high 60’s in these parts!

  2. OH GOD ITS CONTAGIOUS!!! we just got 8 inches in NYC…

    • Eight inches! We would have closed down with that much.

      Oh. And you should totally offer to do a We-Are-The-World series of snowmen with your neighbor. Kill ’em with love and hippieness. 😉
