This weekend was the third time in 2013 that there have been calls for a "possibility," of snow, but except for a very little in some areas north of Atlanta earlier this year, none has materialized.
Monday, February 18
Snow has been scarce in the local area this year, to say the least. Definitely not enough to get any of those beautiful snow scenery photographs we all rush out to get. For the third time this year, there were some "slight" predictions for a chance this morning, but that didn't pan out either. Is 2013 doomed to be yet another snow-free year? If the Old Farmer's Almanac is anything to go by, it is starting to look like that will be the case. According to the long range forecast in the Old Farmer's Almanac for February, Feb. 1 - 7 was the best chance of snow and we now know that didn't happen.

Snow, sleet and black ice are possible. Like others, GCPS officials are monitoring the situation.
Peachtree Corners and Gwinnett parents, be forewarned. It could be a last-minute decision early Friday (January 18) before Gwinnett County school officials decide whether to cancel classes for that day. As of now, classes are still on for Friday, according to Gwinnett Schools' spokesperson Jorge Quintana. He added that the policy for the system, which has more than 160,000 students, is to wait as late as 6 a.m. on the given day before deciding whether to postpone classes for that day. And given the nature of the current weather forecasts, it likely will be a last-minute decision. The National Weather service has talked of the possibility of snow and black ice late Thursday and into early Friday. Black ice is roadway ice from residual …
