Snow White

The deep South was transformed into a winter wonderland today, thanks to Mother Nature. It started snowing here in Douglasville (west of Atlanta) about 11 a.m. and didn't stop until about 4 p.m. The first few hours we were graced with beautiful huge snowflakes. It really was quite a sight. I think it must have snowed about three inches or so.

The girls, of course, were scared to go out when it was really snowing hard. They just stood under the protection of the roof of the patio looking out at the winter wonderland as if it were going to bite them if they stepped on it. Same as last time! After the snowfall ended, they did decide to romp around a bit in the backyard. "A bit" is the key there. They aren't dummies as they knew it was cold, wet, and frozen tundra so they did limit their exposure and just ran out, did their business, and then ran back in - all as quickly as possible!!

I wish they would enjoy playing in it like those Northern Greyhounds as I think they would really enjoy it. I see such beautiful photos and videos of those Greyhounds romping in the snow and they look like they are having so much fun!

Not my sweet Southern Belles. Nope, not mine. They would rather be lounging in the backyard sunning like lizards than running through snow. I guess they truly are Southern Belles. I really don't blame them as I'd rather be doing the same thing!

We only got a tad bit today and I'm too far south so it didn't stick. But we took the girls outside this morning to stand in it so we could take some pictures. Roxy just stood there with her eyes closed as it hit her in the face. Seka could have cared less.
