snow dust in March

I felt like a kid this morning. The forecast had said snow dust for Tuscaloosa this morning, and I got up real early this Saturday morning to welcome it! As I wrote before, it was rare to snow down here. And we had had a terrible drought last year. Most parts of the state were really dry up. Therefore, it was a blast to have snow for the second time this winter. It was the weather phenomenon in the extreme for this year. I know, I know.. most people would think what’s the big deal and would probably be already tired of the cold, but it’s something you can’t miss out on seeing especially here in the South ☺

Contrary to popular belief in my family about me being not a morning person, I really did get out of bed once my alarm struck 6 this morning. I looked out the window and saw all the thin snow on every surface. Grabbed my jacket, camera, and off to the front door.

Even though it was only snow dust, the wind was whirling pretty heavily. So the surrounding really looked like a beautiful postcard. The only difference this time around was that there weren’t that many people, unlike the first snow back in January.

I drove around the town and the neighboring Northport to get a better picture of the snowfall. Just off the bridge accidents had already taken place, cop cruisers were everywhere flashing their lights. Some people were not used to drive on slick snowy roads. But I hope no one was in great danger.

I love your commentary. I just blogged about the same snowstorm except up in Ohio. It was one of the heaviest snows I've ever been in and what makes it so funny is to compare the dusting on your car to mine buried under a foot of snow. Not to take anything away from your snow, its still pretty impressive that far south.

Very cool that you got some snow! Reminded me of our first year in Corpus Christi when we got four inches of unexpected snow on Christmas Eve. We were astonished that so many folks had NEVER seen snow...it was truly magical!

Even though it all melted Christmas Day, this was the biggest snow fall since 1897...
