Hello from the frozen South. Other parts of the country wonder how two inches of snow can shut down all of central Alabama and Georgia. It's the ice that comes first. No one can drive on a road covered in ice. We have no snow plows and salt trucks and all that sort of stuff.
It's 13 degrees now in central Alabama and about 20 in Mobile.
This only only happens here about every 15 years. It's usually about an inch and it's gone in a day.
View from the library window. Since I'm almost 60, this is apt to be the last snow I will see in my lifetime.
