Just about every 4 or 5 years, there's a snow or ice storm here at Lake Norman - this one was a combo of both, including some "thunder snow", which is basically a thunder and lightning show while it's snowing. Our power was out over 36 hours, and it was windy as all heck from the northeast...but what a gorgeous synrise on the several inches of fresh white stuff. And since the camelias have already started to bloom, we had the rare treat of camellias in the snow. I love NC!
See you on the lake,
