Excellent news!!  On January 31st, my best friend is coming from Massachusetts to visit! Woohoo!  It will be a welcome relief for her to get away from the extreme cold. For me? Fantastic to have a friend for exploration!

L, who is coming to visit,  prompted the dedication quote in my next book!

“True friends

are often discovered by

 unsolicited action and support.

 Once found, forever carried within the heart.” – Kallie Knight

 

 

“WEATHER” OR  NOT WE ARE HAVING FUN…. HAHAHA!

In the northern part of the east coast,  in the last two weeks, they have experienced 12-14 plus inches of snow a few times, and quick thaws causing icy roads, walkways along with some flash flooding.  They are enduring an ongoing windchill factor that drops the temperature well below zero. New Hampshire and Vermont as well as other parts of the country are experiencing EXTREME Winter!

When one thinks of North Carolina, generally, the mind envisions hot sunny, humid days. Surprise! They DO have winter!

This morning, as I walked the dogs, there was a crisp, crackle to the grass comparable to the sound of the crinkle-crunch of when my cat attempts to sneak into a freshly opened bag of potato chips.

Temperature?  Twenty-four degrees!

 

When I first arrived to North Carolina, it was barely 48 hours following an all time record breaking snowfall. As the last six-ish weeks have flown by, I have experienced, rain,  frozen water droplets hanging from the branches, while the ground remained wet but too warm to freeze.

In the last 2 weeks there have been school delays due to icy roads. Sounds like Wintry weather to me!

The temperature ranges from 63-38 degrees during the day, then drops to the 20-30s at night. Mother Nature seems to enjoy the element of surprise as this transpires in no particular order and without warning.

One day I will be a bit hot in my hoodie, the next I have my purple scarf wrapped about my neck as I add a winter coat to take the dogs outside into the brisk air! Three hours later I may be in a hoodie again, with blue skies, sunshine and what I deem to be the perfect not too hot, not too cold temperature.

I have felt blessed, weather-wise, to witness this time of year in Statesville and Troutman, NC!

Well I am off to do more unpacking in hopes of having some sort of order when L arrives!! 

❤ 

Have a wicked awesome Wednesday!!

 

Kind Regards  and #winning- K
