The snow started falling yesterday sometime around midday here in Atlanta.
It was Skye's first day at the local home-school co-operative.
She was a little nervous about going "back to school" after not being in any sort of organized education for a while. She ended up having a great time and when she came out the area outside the school was covered in a blanket of snow.
She was ecstatic. She loves the snow.
And then we started hearing about how bad the traffic was going to get. We ran around, took some pictures and headed home. It took us around 45 minutes to get home, usually it would take 10-15 minutes.
That wasn't that bad, but that was early on in the day.
When Cindy told me that her production office was closing down at 3 pm, but she still had a few things to do, so wouldn't be leaving yet, I suggested she come home sooner than later......
It took her an hour and fifteen minutes to get home. It usually takes her 12 minutes, but not before getting rear-ended and sliding around the ice.
And she was lucky as it turns out.
As everyone knows, many Atlantans were not so fortunate.
I'm the only one in the gym, that's a first — at X3 Sports.
When I got home after my morning work-out, which important to note is literally across the street from where we live, Cindy was heading out to try to get to the production office.
Again I advised against it, and even offered to drive. But no, she was going to walk on over to a co-workers house just down the belt-line and he was going to drive them in.
Around 45 minutes later, she was back home. They had barely got out of the parking structure before spinning out of control and deciding that perhaps heading out on the icy roads was not such a good idea after all.
It was, however gorgeous outside, so we decided to go on a family outing.
Skye and I wanted to try bicycling along the snowy belt-line.
Cindy opted to walk.
A great time was had by all.

just got back from a little bike ride around Snowlanta. Luckily I have most of my winter gear with me, except for footwear. My feet are like blocks of ice. Thawing them out in front of heater. Its beautiful out there by the way.
I'm helping out a friend with what we hope to be will be a successful "community garden" . On Monday, I was in a T-shirt helping make raised beds and starting some "sheet-composting".
Nice to get in from the cold — at Barcelona Inman Park.
We ended the day with a very impromptu lunch meet-up at one of our favorite Atlanta establishments, that is after I thawed out my little frozen footsies.
Again we were quite fortunate and hope that things get back to normal for those who weren't so lucky.
