First white Christmas for Lake Norman since 1947!! Check out the photos (if you don't see them here, click on 'View blog' below, and that will redirect you to the full photo blogspot site).
It's a winter wonderland that is rapidly melting in true North Carolina style.
But it has been just cold enough to stick around, looking pretty for the holiday festivities.
We got probably 4-5 inches of the fluffy whitemess that compacted pretty fast. The only downside is the black ice at night (and early morning) from daytime melting.
I just love photographing log homes & tall pines in snow - and there is usually very little opportunity to do that, given how quickly our snow melts.... if we get any at all.
The beauty part, for this transplanted northerner, is the fact that melting usually occurs so quickly that you don't need to own a snowblower. All the charm of a fluffy snowfall, without getting ice blocks for feet while pushing a big red machine.
Happy New Year to all - let's make it peaceful, healthy and prosperous!
See you on the lake,
