ALBANY, GA (WALB) – While some parts of the country are digging out from December snow fall there is one place you will find that is hauling it in.

Lets face it the average snowfall some northern cities get in a day might equal to what Moultrie has received in the past 100 years. So the forecast, at least around the Colquitt County Court house called for snow.

People came with their cameras and cell phones to snap the moment.

"It is chilly I didn't know it was going to be this cold I didn't bring a coat," said Brenda Ferguson.

The white stuff had to be brought in from Adel and blanketed the ground feet from the courthouse steps.

"We're having a great time the kids love the snow they don't get to see it in south Georgia so," said Ferguson.

For the city the snow is a welcomed site, it's second year it's snowed in downtown for the Holidays.

"Not only does it snow but our stores are open and the restaurants are open," said Amy Johnson, Mainstreet Director.

Saturday was also about spotlighting what the city center has to offer.

"We want our local people to support local people and bringing people downtown it makes them aware of what they have," said Johnson.

With snow as the centerpiece thousands were expected to show up. They hope is by drawing families downtown they'll be aware of the businesses here and support the local economy.
