    Many parts of the country have had frigid temps since before Christmas and North Carolina was no exception. It snowed 15 inches before Christmas and we have had several 2" or less snows since then combined with single digits at night. The Cane River is frozen over in spots with a dusting of snow on top of the ice.

    Looks like us in Iowa right now. Maybe with the warm up some of it will melt before we get the next snow.

    Where are you in NC? I grew up there, but in Greensboro...I'm guessing you're in the mountains????

    PS, your dog looks mighty happy in the snow :)

    Brrr - My granddaughter got caught in this mess. She went home to NC with a friend from college to visit and before she could get back the snow came in (they live on a country road). They finally got the snow plow down their road and she is safe and sound. I used to live in Illinois and I sure don't envy you the snow. It's pretty but sometimes hard to live with. :-)

    Looks like where we are (in hiding, of course!).

    Love the river scene. Our river looks pretty much the same only a lot higher than usual.

    We are so fortunate to live on a road that is plowed quite a lot. I know some of my guild members do not have 4 wheel drive and can only get out when they go somewhere in hubby's truck!

    Sadie is a big yellow lab that is very spoiled. She hangs out in front of the heater and acts like she is freezing, but had a great time in the snow, even though I was freezing! It was so cold and she was running in and out of the creek like it was summer!

    Vicki, where are you in NC. That is my home state. I am hoping to get my husband to go back there for retirement in a few years. Hopefully somewhere in the mountains.

    I was born and raised in South Louisiana and have lived in NC for over 20 years, just not in the mountains. We love it here too. The people are very warm and friendly and the town that I live closest to has 2 quilt shops and a great guild. We couldn't have picked a better place!

    Those are some beautiful pictures! So pretty! It looks like you live on a hill. It's hard living on a hill in that type of weather. I live on a mountain and coming down it during bad weather is horrible! Thanks for sharing.
