    The Sunny South? More Pics

    Well, the part of West Central Alabama is anything but sunny today. It has been snowing for over 3 hours now and so I thought I'd let the rest of you know how it is here in the sun belt. Bumper, I'm giving up my weather forecasting job!


    Big tree across the street from my front door.


    Neighbor's front yard from my front porch.


    Gold Finch making the most of it by eating at the feeder.


    Another Gold Finch at a different feeder. The tree behind is a Holly tree in my neighbor's yard it is about 75' tall. Bushes covered with snow and more falling.


    Our back yard. On the left you can see three dog houses lined up inside the fence. My wife's storage building is on the right. She stores her Christmas decorations in it.

    This is the second snow for us since we moved back to Alabama in 1995. I'm not personally a big fan of snow, but when it's here I have to take a few photos. A friend just called and said his granddaughter called from about 60 miles South of us. She was all excited. She's never seen real snow before. It's fun for the kids, but us old folks can do without. Besides that it's keeping me from going to a gun show.

    I hope it stops before it builds up on the streets.
    It's heading this way, only rain so far; but, winter watches issued.

    A little bit of sleet and snow flurries and some rain in NW Louisiana yesterday. Right now winds out of the north, pretty cool at mid 30's, but lots of sun and blue sky.

    I'm willing to go to a gun show today, but can't find one close. I did buy three rifles last week, so I guess I'll lay low for a while......at least til next week.

    It has stopped snowing here and the temp has already started to rise. The sun is peaking through the clouds. To illustrate how an occurance like snow affects people in West Central Alabama I submit the following photos of my normally level headed wife. This is not a woman who is just out of college or one who has never been out of the county. This is a lady who is over 50 years old (you can't tell it by looking at her).




    Leah and her snowman.




    Leah makes a snow angel.

    Evidently the snow causes many rational people to go completely around the bend - in West Central Alabama.

    LOL...Cool ! Here in west Georgia (LaGrange) it fell heavy with large flakes, and still slighty snowing at 3PM. It should start back up here, as the temp drops.

    George, that's great. Play before it melts.

    People around here would be shooting the show by now if it would help. I've got about a 6' pile alongside the driveway from shoveling and about 1 1/2 to 2 feet on the ground.

    The bright side is that the snow will be gone in a day or two. We only have about 6" of snow but the temperature is a high of 10º with a wind chill of -10º for the next couple of days. Brrrrr. No outdoor gun range for me this weekend.

    Jeese! Its snowing in Alabama, and I cant get even a flurry here in Ohio. Its cold as cold can be, but no snow. The Jeep needs a workout! Growing up in Northern Ohio and getting lake effect snow makes me miserable when I get a few dustings a year here in southern Ohio.

    Your wife does look much younger than 50!

    Hey George, that little dusting of snow wouldn't even make us put on our studded snow tires in Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I went to the bank, the post office (saw a guy from work there, oddly enough), and then the supermarket. It was a madhouse on a Saturday morning in sleepy little Gloucester, VA!
