    It snowed hard in Atlanta, my community roads have been shut for 2 days. Tried to clear out snow on my car, my car being a 4 wheel drive I was able to get some milk late last night. A 10 mile commute took over 90 minutes even though the roads are deserted.

    Walk like we did in the old days.

    I am located in Vinings, Georgia, and it was amazing to see so many people actually walk to the grocery store. Cars cannot come up the hill or if they leave the apartment complex they become stuck like the single car in the image.

    The breath of God produces ice.
    The shallow water freezes over.

    Hold On!

    A rare four inches of snow dumped on central Arkansas and children were out of school for a rare treat: a snow day. 

    This picture was captured on Monday, January 10, 2011 as neighborhood families gathered to take advantage of snow and area hills.  Hailey takes a small jump with style while her mom looks on.
