On Sunday, we got more snow than I had ever seen here in Athens in 10 years (by more I mean about 6" more!) The most we've gotten was maybe an 1" or 2" and it melted really quickly. So I was thinking that well, the snow is great for a day or so, then it melts, the end! 4 days later, we still have snow!!! And its supposed to be in the 60's today. But I guess that is what happens when you get 7" instead of the measly 1" - it takes longer to melt despite the sunny days and warmer temps. That and freezing again overnight doesn't help. Though yes, as my friend Kathryn asked, the novelty has worn off. The snow makes me feel like I'm in a freezer. Its really fun for a couple days. I couldn't be outside enough on Sunday! Then I'm done with it! Give me flowers and spring time temps... w/o the snow. I'm hoping the hyacinths and daffodils and crocuses (croci?) we had will be able to pull through and not be totally frozen out by the snow that is still laying on top of them. sigh. poor little babies.
