Snow, Snow, Snow.... in Seagrove, North Carolina

We woke up this morning to an unusual beautiful view aspect for these parts.  Bruce is walking down towards me sporting his snow boots that we purchased when we lived in Alfred, New York.  He does not get to wear them very often here in Seagrove, North Carolina.   I am amazed that he was able to find them.

   Yesterday was Gloria's and my big day out in the city of Raleigh, shopping at our favorite grocery stores and running some house errands.  The stores were packed and lines were long.  I was wondering to myself, "What is the deal?"  I pulled the last vodka red sauce off of the shelf and Gloria grabbed the last Alfredo Sauce.  (Some of our favorites from Trader Joe's)  As I was checking out, the cashier said are you looking forward to the snow?  This was the first I had heard of real possibilities of snow, and did not really believe that we would see any.   I proceeded to tell him my LONG snow/thaw/snow story from Alfred (not quite sure if the person behind me enjoyed it, I am sure it slowed down checking out).  

Well, this morning we woke up to a blanket of snow.    We wanted to share some of the images with you of our property.

Our Home

Old Chicken House, We are hoping and planning on  "rebuilding" some day.  Well, maybe a few sections of it. 

Our pond and old animal shed.  I love images with leaning poles.

Our garage.  It needs a little repair work too.  Our property is filled with beautiful decay.

You mean to say, you MISS the snows of Alfred? Today was -5F here in Ithaca... probably colder in Alfred. Snow has been falling since about 8am. Not much really, but nice fat pretty flakes!

Hey Alex, No, I would have to say I don't miss the snow and cold weather in Alfred. Though we do like to tell Alfred snow stories. It is fun to see a snow here and how it softens our environment. We also know it won't last for long. Stay warm.

Hey Jennie and Meredith, I think all of us here in Seagrove are excited about the snow.

Check out Jennie's and Meredith's blog snow pictures!

Hey Brad, Welcome back from China. We enjoyed following your blog.
