Oh, my, what a beautiful day. It started with a beautiful sunrise ...
... with warm sunshine throughout the day. I think it got into the low 70s today. It was an "open up the sunroof and let the sun shine in" kind of day.
But as a friend reminded me on Facebook, 20 years ago today (March 15, 1993), this is what we encountered--SNOW! That evening we met our friends in Mobile for supper and the chatter was about the blizzard that was headed our way. We pooh-poohed the whole idea of there being a blizzard in South Alabama, but on the drive home, the rain on the roof went silent and we were soon in a white-out. Talk about nervous, we were 20 miles from home, had never driven in snow, and found ourselves sliding over iced bridges and wondering if we should pull over and wait it out for the night. The four-lane was soon reduced to a two-lane highway. Luckily, we found a semi continuing it's journey north and we followed behind it. Safely home, we all crawled into the same bed and listened to the cracking trees breaking beneath the heavy snow throughout the night. When we awoke, we found a winter wonderland. So fun.
Here is the same swing Bobb was napping on from my Saturday picture.
And, of course, our church across the road.
Who says we never see excitement in South Alabama?
