Rare Snow Falls in Southeast

Randall Weiseman General, Georgia, Livestock, Weather

With the Southeast experiencing a late cold snap, the Georgia Office of Southeast AgNet saw a rare snow this weekend, with 6 ½ inches falling over a 12 hour time period. Being a transplant from the relatively mild North Florida region, it was only my second time ever seeing snow. Our cattle were even more shocked at seeing the strange substance falling. But more importantly the drought stricken area also received 6 inches of rain. Which when combined with the melting snow is making for quite a muddy trek through the fields, but we are certainly not complaining.
