Snow is not a regular occurrence here in Alabama, so we get very excited on the rare occasions that it happens. Last year, our area got a nice snowfall (that shut the city down for a few days), but we were in Florida when it happened and missed it! This week, we got 8 inches of snow, which was a record-breaking amount for February. (Okay, you Northerners, you can laugh now.) As is typical, it was up to 40 degrees the next day and most of it melted. But it was pretty for a while!
