When Mother Nature decides to give you the day off….. Atlanta Blizzard of 2011!

 

Atlanta Blizzard of 2011 - Winter Photo by Michelle Francis, Buckhead RealtorSometimes even when you have activities planned, Mother Nature has other ideas.  Originally, I was taking buyers out today for Tim Francis Realty to continue our quest to find them a good home.  For the first time in as long as I can remember in my nearly 30 years in Atlanta, the weather news was clear, concise and CORRECT 48 hours in advance.


Atlanta received 5-6 inches of snow last night into this morning and then has seen some sleet or freezing rain on top of that.  Not a big deal, well, honey you don’t live in Dixie if you are saying that.  Atlanta (and most of the south) barely have any snow removal equipment or staff.  This amount of snow is practically a top 10 snow weather event since records have been kept in Atlanta.

Looking for a home is important, but one would be absolutely insane to be out in this weather – few streets are plowed, and it’s just not safe.  The only neighbor I’ve seen leave the neighborhood is an OB-GYN, now that profession doesn’t get a snow break.  I know Tim Francis Reality will be back in the business of showing homes shortly and that’s ok.

 

Life is good when Mother Nature decides to give you the day off!

 

 

What do you do when Mother Nature gives you the day off?

Michelle--I had to chuckle when you said at the beginning of your post 5-6 inches, not a big deal--unless you're a northerner.

As you know I live up north and our kids don't get snow days unless it's 15-16 inches, but they love a snow day just as much as southern kids.  Love the nighttime photo of kids playing in the snow.  Enjoy the rest of the week.

Mary,

I know, but 5-6 inches is like 5 feet in the north.  This is the worst I've ever seen here, as far as even the Interstate Highways haven't been cleared, so you know all the secondaries are horrible.  It could be a long week. 

All the best, Michelle

Sounds like you used this opportunity to take some time to smell the roses or play in the snow :)

Hi Michelle, Doesn't new snow make everything so beautiful? Your photos are pretty. I'm scrambling here to get things done because we are due for a huge snowstorm. Now I'm hearing 12-22"!

Renee

Still doing so, might be a week.  That and organizing and I should be well ready to take on the world next week.  

Jackie, 

Our major issue is the freezing rain after the 6-7 inches of snow.  We now have a few inches of ice on streets.  Major highways are CLOSED and many are only slightly drive able.   Good luck in dealing with this strong storm.  It's the fastest snowfall accumulation I remember in a while.

All the best, Michelle
