Blairsville, Georgia (high 40, low 25 with snow flurries)


Well, we got our wish. 

Last night around 11pm, it started to snow.  Big fat snowflakes, and lots of them. Baxter sat on the window ledge for the longest time watching them fall. He was so cute.

Al and I were pretty impressed to.  It has been a LONG time since we’ve seen falling snow.

I got up several times during the night to see if we had a blanket of snow on the ground.  We didn’t, but it snowed a little off and on during the night.

This is what we see outside our bedroom window this morning.


Unfortunately, it didn’t stick to the ground, but I guess that’s good because at least the roads won’t be slippery.  We have our hearts set on some Brunswick Stew from the local BBQ, Jim’s Smokin Q. 


I was afraid to walk onto the deck.  It was very slippery.


The poor birds are hungry and the birdfeeder was full of snow.  Al has since remedied this situation and now there is big fat dove sitting there.




After almost 4 months here in Blairsville, we have really settled in, and so we have a lot of preparation to do to leave.

We worked around here most of the afternoon yesterday, reorganizing, and moving things around.   We still have to winterize the hot tub and cabin water systems.   That didn’t get done yesterday, and now today, it’s cold and very windy outside, so that won’t be a pleasant job.

The patio furniture all goes into the cabin, but now it’s all wet.  

I guess we won’t be leaving tomorrow.

Okay.   We’ve seen snow, we’re over it.  If it’s not going to snow enough to cover the ground, then I’m ready for the sun to come out and the wind to die down.  Some sunshine  and warmer temps are starting to sound kind of nice.

It is definitely time to head south.

Merikay and Craig, aren’t you glad you left when you did?


Maybe we should be on the Overseas Highway?

  1. That's my kind of snow. Pretty to watch falling and then it disappears.

  2. Thats enough of that white stuff, now time to hit the road for you guys.

  3. Don't like those snow pictures at all! Thank goodness you'll be on your way south soon and not be around for any repeat performances of that white stuff!

  4. Definitely time to move on:) Snow is at near the top of things to avoid list here!

  5. We never did get anything last night. The wind was ferocious all night and today though :(

  6. It does not take long to get over that snow!
