Snow day!

It snowed in Georgia today! The entite city of Augusta literally shut down. Since it snowed a few inches and then rained, everything was closed! The south can't handle snow like my native Michigan. I got the day off, which was fantastic. I called up my friend, Lizzy, and we walked around downtown taking pictures.
I got all bundled up in my teal leather gloves, Nine West cowboy boots, and "winter" denim jacket I bought from Tieka at Selective Potential. I knitted the hat I'm wearing. 

We went to the Springfield Park at 12th and Reynolds. I jumped in the fountain that was like a skating rink and slid around like a crazy woman. I love that my cowboy boots don't have much tread, makes for fun on the ice.

It was crazy how empty the roads were. Silly Georgians can't handle a little slush on the road. With everyone home from work, and everything being closed, I guess no one had anywhere to go. Plus they can't handle the cold. No offense to you southerners, us Michigan folk are just a little tougher. Haha.
My friend, Lizzy, and I reviewing the pictures. He did a great job!

Icicles on everything!

Great day for a snow day. I definitely needed this. I get so homesick and miss Michigan all the time. Today made it a little better. Brought me back to Michigan winters. Too bad everything will melt tomorrow and it will be back to normal Georgia winter (Michigan fall) in a few days. I'm glad it snowed regardless.
