    The DOT does a great job of keeping the road clear so we have no problems going to town in my SUV. It has all wheel drive so all 4 wheels pull all the time, which gives you better traction even in the rain and is great in the snow.

    It made it up to 50 degrees today and I am so glad to see the sun! There is rain in the forecast by Saturday, which is okay as long as it doesn't turn to freezing rain!

    So idealic, thank you for sharing! I'm from Bogalusa, LA.! I have looked at homes in Sylva area, I love NC. Is that river near your house? so pretty! Your pictures could be postcards. I'm so happy that you have founds your little piece of heaven on earth and are happy. Sounds like you really did find the perfect place to retire. God Bless.

    I grew up in LA, just west of New Orleans and really love NC. If I wasn't living here, it would be East Texas or North La for sure, but not South La. Too hot, and too flat!

    THE 3RD PIC WOULD MAKE A WONDERFUL WALL QUILT.
    OUR LAKE WAS FROZEN THE OTHER DAY, UNTIL 9 AM. I AM SO GLAD IT'S OVER. HOPEFULLY NEVER AGAIN.

    My sister was saying the same thing about the photos. She said that she saw several landscape quilts in the photos.

    For the most part, I love the weather here. My neighbor says he can't ever remember such a big snow fall and he grew up hee, in this very house. I like the 4 in or so that melts after a few days!

    So how is the Cajun in you faring the cold? We were freezing over here for 10 days and we didn't have all that beautiful snow.

    Oops! Should've read all the way through before I asked my question.

    We are still alive. We were in Raleigh for 6 days and didn't miss the single digit lows at all. Raleigh was actually balmy 40's and 50's compared to up here. We got to experience 2 more weeks of frigid temps and at least 2 more snow events of 2 inches plus. My birdbath had fallen over with the weight of the snow and the ground is still too frozen to stand it upright and level it. The snow is gradually melting but there is still ice in the creek and the river. Rain is suppose to move in tonight so it will be interesting to see how much more melting takes place.

    Cool! We are located in the other direction--north of town and Micaville is south of town.

    Can't help myself, have to post some winter pictures of our valley from our deck. Can't remember if these are this years pictures or last yeards but suffice to say, a blanket of snow on everything is pretty no matter what year the picture is taken. Then there are close to the same pictures taken in spring with all the cherry trees in bloom and in fall when things are getting dry and yellow and orange. All these pictures were taken from our back deck. Our view are spectacular. Mt. Hood isn't seen here but it looms majestically off to the left of each of these pictures.

    Hey Penny,
    Dry? Did you say dry? We've had nothing but rain here. First it was freeze, freeze, freeze; now it's wet, wet, wet, again. That's one thing about South Louisiana -- if you wait a few hours, the weather is sure to change. And after the rain it will be warm, warm, warm.
