Look what fell in my dear friend, Ashley's backyard this weekend. And she lives in Tuscaloosa!!!! We waited and waited on Thursday for the snow to fall and it never happened!!!
****after posting this, I read a post by the other mama and realized that it did indeed snow AND STICK in North Alabama, but IT.DID.NOT.HERE in central Alabama - we got some flurries and schools shut down for a day, but NOTHING stuck, believe me!!!!!
Don't ask me the details, all I know is that he was putting it together while we were over there watching the National Championship Thursday night and Ashley and I were very "weary" about whether or not it would work.
It is comprised of a bunch of metal tubes and a pressure washer and air compressor and then a bunch of other temperature and humidity factors - yada yada yada.
They ran it about 5 hours the first night it produced about 6-8 inches of wonderful powdery snow in some places. The next night he ran it 3-4 more hours and it made for an absolute winter wonderland!!!!!
This was our attempt at a group picture, but little to our "Alabama" knowledge, snow and ice are slippery and some of the children slipped away!!!!
