Monday was a national holiday, but in Cary - so was yesterday. It was, of course, Snow-Bama Day (a special thanks to my neighbor, Rana Highsmith, for coining the term). You didn't celebrate Snow-Bama, too? You should have, because it was an amazing celebration.
First, and foremost, our country inaugurated our 44th President. That event in and of itself was something to celebrate. But to make the day even more special, locally, we were treated to 4" of snow. It was our first decent snow in two years (if you could even call it decent). The kids were off school and the roads were a mess. So folks had no choice but to stay home from work (boo-hoo).
The kids (of all ages) had a blast sledding. It was fun to enjoy a bit of the white powder, but down here in the south we don't have "real" winters. The sun came out after lunch and the snow started melting soon after. But today, the roads were in good shape, and by Friday the highs are in the 50's. Like a said, just enough snow to enjoy. (P.S. - A special thanks to Kim Gilmore for snapping this pic of Sarah).
