THE WHITE, VERY WHITE DAY AFTER

The snowstorm of 12/18/2009 has moved on out of Western North Carolina and left us with an incredibly beautiful morning – no power but a beautiful morning none the less.

We briefly had power before losing it again around 9:00 p.m. The snow had let up significantly by that point and it was peacefully quiet outside except for trees snapping off in the cove around us. We finally called it a night and bundled up after getting the dogs safely ensconced in their beds. The cats chose to act as foot warmers for us. The skies had begun to clear last night before we piled into bed and this morning dawned with low lying clouds on Cold Mountain and Mt. Pisgah topped off by brilliant blue skies.

Thanks to our generator, my “best half” is prepping for a ride into town and hopefully a warm meal. I must say that our 27th Wedding Anniversary yesterday was of a different variety than any from the past. I would rank it up there with one of the best!

Until later,
