As the Snow Melts...

Georgia becomes a very different place in winter. It shuts down. It becomes a strange, insular village where people huddle in their homes and hope that the power doesn't go down.

Celebration begins -- as it did today -- when the snow starts to melt. There was very little of it, but our state is so unused to the concept of real winter and its inconveniences that we shrivel up and hide until it is gone.
