Forgive me for getting excited, but this doesn’t happen often here in Atlanta. Since I have been here, I think it has happened only 2 or 3 times. In fact, today looks like the rare event where the snow stays on the ground for a day.

According to the National Weather Sevice,

Today. Occasional rain mixed with snow and sleet this morning. Then a chance of rain and snow in the afternoon. Windy and colder. Additional snow accumulation up to 1 inch. Highs in the low to mid 30s. East winds 10 to 20 mph. Chance of precipitation 80 percent.

Tonight. Mostly cloudy. A 30 percent chance of rain or light snow in the evening. Lows in the lower 30s. Northeast winds 5 to 10 mph.

A whole inch. That’s quite a lot!

Emory and Georgia State have delayed opening their campuses today till noon and Kennesaw is closed while Tech is open. I think K-12 schools are all closed as well. I hope you northerners don’t make too much fun of us. At least it snowed this time. We have had school closings based on snow forecast when nothing happened.

Here’s the view from my room.

UPDATE: Kianoush seems to be pretty excited about the snow as well.

  1. The probability of the documented regional manifestation of solid phase di-Hydrogen Oxide is only slightly higher than a solid phase di-Hydrogen Oxide spheroid’s chance in…well, Atlanta. 😉

  2. That’s outside my window, too. Been there for a couple of weeks, at least. More, actually, considering it’s been steadily melting.

    Sorry I can’t think of a truly witty remark…

  3. Anju: please feel free to take some of our snow.

    Can you please send some? Ours all melted.

    actually, today is a beautiful 50 degrees.

    We have had 50 degrees almost all winter.

    we feel like summer has hit

    You have no idea what summer is like.
