When Mother Nature decides to give you the day off….. Atlanta Blizzard of 2011!
Sometimes even when you have activities planned, Mother Nature has other ideas. Originally, I was taking buyers out today for Tim Francis Realty to continue our quest to find them a good home. For the first time in as long as I can remember in my nearly 30 years in Atlanta, the weather news was clear, concise and CORRECT 48 hours in advance.
Atlanta received 5-6 inches of snow last night into this morning and then has seen some sleet or freezing rain on top of that. Not a big deal, well, honey you don’t live in Dixie if you are saying that. Atlanta (and most of the south) barely have any snow removal equipment or staff. This amount of snow is practically a top 10 snow weather event since records have been kept in Atlanta.
Even better, we’ve just enjoyed the beautiful snow. The kids have literally been outside last night at 10pm and all day long today. Life is good when you can enjoy a beautiful view that you don’t see everyday. The joy of a new snowfall and being able to sled down a hill when it’s a rarity is just cool.
Looking for a home is important, but one would be absolutely insane to be out in this weather – few streets are plowed, and it’s just not safe. The only neighbor I’ve seen leave the neighborhood is an OB-GYN, now that profession doesn’t get a snow break. I know Tim Francis Reality will be back in the business of showing homes shortly and that’s ok.
Life is good when Mother Nature decides to give you the day off!
