yea, a little bit of "home"! my husband and I are from Chicago but have lived in Roswell for 20 years. we miss a touch of winter, but admittedly like the weather here better. kinda fun to see snow once in a while. I don't get the rush to buy milk, eggs and bread tho, whenever a flake threatens. is all of Atlanta making french toast at the same time?

my two dogs seem a little baffled by this, their first snow experience! my husband just took them to the park, sporting their new sweaters, to play in the snow

I know it only lasts for a few days at a time then gets cold again but do the trees get tricked by the warm weather and start to flower/green and then it will freeze again? Or do you need a few weeks of warm weather for that to happen.

Anyway please take alot of pics of the snow, im interested in seeing it
Yes--sometimes the trees/flowers are affected by colder weather after they have had weeks of early Spring type weather.

By mid-January this year some flowers/bushes had started to bud. Since November it has been cold --30's/40s for a few days/week and then warmer.

In the past if there was at least a week's worth of below freezing temps around this time of year the peanuts, peaches and other crops in South Georgia would be affected. I don't think there is much danger of that this year.

When do the trees usually become green in atlanta? And by trees i mean like in the forest or the oaks/maples etc.

Atlanta looks 'pretty green' by mid April.

Yes, it's still coming down with a burst of thunder once in awhile. You should be getting it soon. (Although I think this is a more southerly event. It's possible you might miss out. This might be more of an Atlanta/Augusta/Columbia event).
