Snow In Atlanta At Last
We've already got about two inches of snow on the ground and might have up to four by the end of the day. It's really gorgeous outside, and it's not sticking too badly to the roads. However, with temperatures dropping, there is concern the slushy will freeze over. The Poetry Out Loud regional competition I was supposed to emcee today was just canceled, so I'll be home today drinking tea and watching the gorgeous snowfall.
Yesterday, I hosted the first part of the Poetry Out Loud regionals at the Atlanta History Center. The students were amazing and I know the judges -- which included Katie Chaple and Travis Denton -- had tough decisions to make. Thanks to Melanie Eisenhart and the AHC for asking me to emcee. It was a fun afternoon.
On Friday night, I went down to Fayetteville and read during the 11th annual Blended Heritage event at the Fayette County Library. It was standing and sitting on the floor room only. There were 175 people easily. It was a treat to see so many old friends and hear the great Ferrol Sams read from his novel in progress. Many thanks to Christeen Snell for inviting me.
