Another snow day, another day for play and pictures

By Ken Stanford Reporter
Many north Georgians stayed home Tuesday, their workplace or school closed for the day because of snow that began falling just before daybreak - as expected.

For many, it was a repeat of two weeks ago when a couple of inches of snow led many businesses, government offices and schools to close.

And, again many of those who stayed home slipped outdoors to enjoy the winter wonderland and they took their cameras with them.
