Like most of the country, we have had some crazy weather in western North Carolina this winter. Not much snow but dangerously low temps below zero and frozen water pipes.
It's been strange to see the creek so frozen without snow.
Then our weather forecasters finally got it right, and we got about 4 inches yesterday and last night.
Compared to the 18-20" we have had in years past, it's not much but enough to make mountain roads very slippery.
This morning it was absolutely gorgeous and sunny but zero, so I let Luis go out and take the photos:-)
It had warmed up to 14 when he snapped these in our little community.
This is the "main" road through Balsam which runs parallel with the railroad track as it has for more than 100 years.
...and a sunset from our front porch.
We finally got our snow:-) Hopefully it will be just a tad warmer tomorrow so the children can go sledding without fear of frostbite.
