Still No Measurable Snow

This morning, the highly publicized snow storm forecast appeared to be a total bust. It was just cold and raining. I had high hopes, especially when I woke up at 3:30 a.m. to hear sleet hitting the windows. Finally, about 8:30 am, the snow started coming down. It was very slow at first, but then got reasonably hard, especially for Alabama standards. But then in true Alabama Winter fashion, the snow stopped about 11:00 a.m and immediately started to melt. It was completely gone by noon. We did manage to get some pics.......

When the snow first started, we briefly took Savannah outside to see it.

I was making snowballs off of the car and throwing them into the street.
Savannah thought that was pretty entertaining.

Is a 1/8 inch considered measurable?More of Lynn's art. It just doesn't sound right: "with no corn cob pipe, and a carrot nose and two eyes made out of carrots."

That was our very brief snow day!

Tuscaloosa Forecast for Saturday, Jan. 19, 2007

If the following is true, it will be the first measurable snow in Tuscaloosa in over 10 years. If there is snow, there will be pics.

HEAVY SNOW WARNING CENTRAL ALABAMA: The NWS issued that at midafternoon. Look for continuing details on the ABC 33/40 blog. This event is looking more and more serious.Precipitation was spreading eastward from East Texas and Louisiana this afternoon. This is the scenario we expect for Alabama. Rain will spread into the state tonight from the west and SW as a low- pressure area continues to develop over the Northern Gulf of Mexico.Meanwhile, arctic air will slowly push into the state from the NW dropping temperatures to near freezing over about the north half of Alabama by daybreak. The rain should change to snow between midnight and daybreak, especially around 3:00 to 4:00 a. m. We do not expect any serious travel problems tonight, but accumulating snow early Saturday, if it materializes as expected, will cause some travel problems.The National Weather Service expanded their Winter Storm Watch today to include a large number of counties. It now covers from North Alabama all the way down to south of Montgomery.

Christmas at the Mason's

Okay....I am a total slacker on the blog. Here are the first round of Christmas pics. This was at the Mason's house in Buhl. More to follow.

We could have given Savannah a box and some tissue paper, and she would have thought it was great.

Savannah like box.

Natalie not like box.

I gave Pam envelopes....... ninety of them to be exact. She likes me. PawPaw got PJ's. Savannah thought he was a tree.
Mema and the babies.
All of the ladies.

Savannah loves books. We still haven't put up the Jingle Bells book.

2 Babies and a Granma'am.

I do not like this hat.

I will take yours.

There is nothing you can do.

Me and Natalie

At the end of the night, Savannah and Paw Paw were tired; and Natalie was trying to figure out how she ended up in this family.
