The Perfect Southern Snow Storm

We had a wee bit of a storm yesterday and, at least by my house, it was the perfect southern snow storm. It snowed all day, shutting down schools and bringing things to a grinding halt.

By mid-morning a soft blanket of snow covered the house and yard. The flakes came down fast and furious, yet the snow peaked at 1 1/2 inches and never got any deeper. It was well above freezing and as the day wore on the new snow fall could not keep up with the snow melting.

This morning we awake to clear roads and a bare yard. Here and there you could find snow, mostly where it had been piled up. The schools had a two hour delayed start and then everything was back to normal in my neck of the woods.
