Yesterday's weather was accurately forecast 24-hours in advance.
Yes. That means on Monday, the National Weather Service was telling Atlantans we could see snow on Tuesday, that the snow would begin in the late morning, and that the accumulations would be one to three inches. What is shocking is that I knew this. I am usually the last person to have any clue about the weather. My approach is to look out the window and respond based on what I see. But somehow this time I knew enough to run some errands Monday evening, sleep, get up, finish the errands, and get back in the house before 11 AM on Tuesday. And I did.
In Mableton, the snow began falling about 11:50 AM. My car was in the garage. My bird feeder was filled. And the used knitter's cats and I were happily ensconced in our home.

To quote Marge Gunderson, the police officer in the movie Fargo:
"And for what? For a little bit of money. There's more to life than a little money, you know. Don'tcha know that? And here ya are, and it's a beautiful day. Well. I just don't understand it."
