Georgia Snow Days

Thursday we went to Dahlonega, Georgia with my husband who was working there.  This was the third week in a row that we have been traveling!  I hate to complain because I realize how fortunate we are that we get to travel with my husband's job, but I was really wanting some time at home. 

However, I love Dahlonega so any chance to go I take it.  It is such a picturesque town with the historical square & downtown.  Unfortunately, we got there & found out yesterday that my husbands schedule had to be cancelled due to the impending snow storm.  We stayed overnight since the hotel was already paid for & came on home today.

After 4 inches of snow, which is a lot for Georgia, the roads were in pretty good shape. Just a few slick spots but nothing dangerous...DOT did a great job!  If we had stayed we would have been hitting the gold & gem mine.

If you have never been to Dahlonega it is worth the trip!  Quaint downtown with shops, galleries, antique stores, & restuarants.  Plus there is a gold museum to visit right on the square.  We have been to a couple of the gold mines there before & have panned for gold & gemstones.  We even went to a location once outside of town where you mined right in the river...awesome fun in the summertime!  Plus there are premier outlet stores not too far away in Dawsonville for those who love to shop.

After returning home, my son & his neighborhood friends played in the snow. My husband got out with them & built a snowman.  I happily watched from the windows of my heated house!  Looks like what is left from the snow will refreeze tonight so I don't know if we will be able to go to the church in the morning.  Plus our homeschool classes may be cancelled on Monday.  Oh well, we can always play in the snow!
