9 Inches for Our First Snow of 2017

Snow in NC tends to be anything from a dusting, icy mix, stealth snow, and sometimes we actually get some descent accumulation. We our starting the new year with our first snow of 2017 and we ended up with about 9 inches after our last measurement.

While many have been out playing today, other than taking care of all the animals we mostly just stayed inside where it is warm and ate soup. I believe we have outgrown the desire to “play” in the snow. We are so blessed to have electricity, a warm house, and no need to drive to work during this winter weather.
