My mother is always bragging about the weather in North Carolina.  She loves it here and I do admit that the climate is agreeable.  It has been colder than usual this week  but it is still warmer than it is at home.  I take the same walk every day and pass this tree.

 The winter storm that paralyzed Atlanta hit us.  Snow was forcasted to start after 3 PM so we went out in the morning to run errands.  It was already snowing by the time we got back home at noon.

 It snowed two inches.   That's not much according to my standards but for these parts it is.  Some people couldn't get in to work yesterday and I admit, I hunkered right down too.  I wasn't in any mood to share the road with folks who aren't used to driving in snow. 

By the time I got out for my walk this afternoon at two thirty the road was dry and much of the snow  had disappeared despite the cold temperatures (25 degrees).  The sun makes all the difference.

  1. After living all my life in Buffalo, it is hard to imagine all that chaos I see on TV with an inch of snow. Thanks for the time frame photos. Looks like just a great spot, good enough for a painting. I guess the 15 that is coming from Georgia is going to take a long time to get here.

  2. The scenery is lovely. The mountains make me think of where we live except taller. Our friend has a farm outside Franklin, NC. It is a beautiful spot. It is a rare life living down a country road.

  3. I was raised in Texas. The few times it snowed, everything shut down, since no one knew how to drive in the snow. I totally understand poor Atlanta, and the rest of the South with this weather.
