Ice, Ice Baby
I woke up to white on the ground, but it wasn't the soft anomaly from last time. And I say "anomaly" with the same amount of appreciation as before. Georgians are more accustomed to ice than we are snow, but the ice sometimes comes in a white blanket that we call "snow." It's all we have. So when we do get actual snow, it's a blessing in disguise. The dogs remembered the fun from last time and ran outside to enjoy the icy ground--they didn't know the difference. It was nice seeing them enjoy something and not nitpick at the particulars of it. In a way, I learned something from their giddiness today.
The only real downfalls of an ice storm of this magnitude: power outages, 20 mph winds, trees falling down and, of course, ice everywhere. I'm just praying that everyone hit today with the ice storm stays as safe as possible.
