NO SNOW YET! AND IT IS 2:30 PM, TUESDAY!

Yesterday, when it was still about 70 degrees outside in both Macon and Augusta, all public and private schools were closed for today and Wednesday because someone forecasted snow flurries!

Well it is now 2:25 PM and guess what, no snow! And the roads are dry! And guess what, the kids at my Catholic school could have been in school today!!!!!!

Do you think we overreact to bad weather here in the south? Yes!

But I do remember 1973 in both Macon and Augusta and I think it was in February when we actually had a blizzard and got more than 13 inches of snow!  But the kids went to school that morning and by midday, when it looked like the snow would stick, they went home early! O, for the good ole days!

Forsyth report: No sign of snow. Temperature 29 degrees, back porch wet with drops of rain splashing. Recuperating at home today from multiple weeks colds with all the symptoms...:-)

People were slow to react in 1973 because they didn't know what it was.The entire South has been traumatized ever since.

So that's what you would call "Weather Histeria" Anonymous 2! Atanta and Central GA has had a serious case of Weather Histeria since I came in 1973. My previous 8 year residence was California, where we hardly needed a weather report.
