2 inches of snow

A 2 inch snowfall closed down the state... I feel bad for those folk stuck in gridlock traffic in Atlanta for 24 hours or so... I always did hate that Atlanta traffic...

* This pic is from first thing this morning (Jan 29,2014). They've been sitting there all night. Some of the motorists have been out there in their cars for 16 hours.*

The schools didn't bother to open around here... not sure what they were thinking in Atlanta... The Governor is blaming the metrologists... but... He's going to have to take some responsibility... eventually...

 Personally, I listened to the weather report... and paid attention to their warnings to stay home...

I posted a similar picture of my house back on January 2011

A bit closer...

A bird in the bush...

elephant's foot covered in snow. (Elephantopus sp.).
The next day... the birds came to gather seed.

I got a lot of pics of birds in the elephant patch... but the birds are difficult to distinguish from the stems...
I posted flowers from the elephant's patch back in August.

Bluestem covered in snow.

Hibiscus aculeatus

Snow covered hellebores

My rain gage is about full... Not sure if you can measure snowfall that way...

Rats, not search button. I wanted to see what elephant foot plant looked like in the summer. Checked Google Images but there were several different kinds of plants included.
