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.
