‘Fro Me to You: The Snowy South

image

In honor of the oppressing summer heat we experience here down in the South, I bring to you this week a South Alabama Winter Wonderland.

These photos were taken in February of 1973 when I was almost 5 years old. Just for the record, we do get occasional snow here in God’s country; however, these photos were taken in South Alabama where snow is purty durn rare.

I’m sure this is my first attempt ever at a snow angel.

I love the Southern snowmobile! We had flurries in my childhood southern city when I was a child. Once. We keep saying we're going to move some place snowy and cold!

Great pics.

Oh lucky you! Down here in South Florida snow is unheard of. I never even saw snow until I was 19 years old and bought my very own plane ticket to see it! :)

I'll take the heat over the snow any day! Love the trivycle with snow.

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it snow!! I am hoping for a good snowfall this winter... been awhile here in MD since we've had one.

I love the snow! I grew up in Ohio so the snow was much and we used real snowmobiles. We live in the south now. I miss the snow!

Janel@Dandelion Dayz said...

Oh, the southern snowmobile is funny!

We are never really prepared for the snow in NC when it comes like that. I always wish the kids had a snowsuit or something.

I grew up in Missouri where there was snow all the time in the Winter.

I miss it...sometimes. But mostly am very happy to not have to deal with it.

Heather said...

I'll have to post my snow pic soon! I live in south Georgia, so snow is pretty rare here, too!

TJ said...

Doesn't look like that snow hung around all that long! We always have snow here in Central Washington, but some years we'll see it like that. Big piles, and the sun shining and it clears the driveways and streets. I like your hat!

P.S. He loves you... said...

Strangley enough I do feel cooled off now THANKS!

cute pix!

World's Greatest Mommy said...

Wow! I love snow pictures from places where it is so rare...and therefore appreciated.

You are a cutie, and that snowmobile picture is adborable.

Thanks for helping me cool off.

Big Hair Envy said...

Thanks for the little cool down:)

Oddly enough, I think I had that hat! It was red.

Ok, Where Was I? said...

What fun that must have been. I remember when my California cousins came to visit over xmas--they loved the snow.

Well Behaved Krissy said...

Oh I thought you were going to talk about "THE BLIZZARD OF 87!!!" haha! Remember that? When B'ham was totally snowed under. Good stuff.

Valarie said...

Oh snow in Alabama~its few and far between. I want one good snow so I can go sleding. Then it can melt that night :)

Joanna said...

I love snow! I miss it so much since we moved to FL from AL. We came up this past Jan and stayed with my parents so we could see it!

Heather said...

How cute! BTW, I like that hat that Kat put you in ;) I was reminded again this year when it snowed how glad I am that it doesn't frequent often...people got nuts!!!

Leigh said...

It seemed in those days that we got one good snowfall each year, at least every other. Now, just a dusting....

Muthering Heights said...

Wow, I didn't know it would snow that much in the south!

Drama Mama said...

Global warming is killin me- Over 100* forecasted for tomorrow!

Gayle @ thewestiecrew said...

Oh if it would only do that here in Alabama this winter...
My kids would have a stroke, I think.
BTW, I have seen you around (and I know that you are in B'ham area), so I wanted to stop by and say hello!
I hope you get to come to the next BlawgHer get together!
