  1. What are you doing with palm trees? Love the snow pictures. We’ve been known to get a spate of bad weather into March. The day we moved into our current home in April almost 18 years ago, it sleeted. The movers asked if we wanted to reschedule, I said no. It was Good Friday and I was off from school. Had to be then. We’ve already had 85 degrees, so I’m dreading summer. The temps drop back this week, continuing the constant pendulum swing of this winter. Definitely weird.


    1. Hi Marsha
      Oh – I’d like your 85 degrees right now . I truly believe snow belongs on the mountains.
      The palm trees are interesting. There are those in town who think public gardens should feature local plants, and those that want to show the world that palm trees can actually live here. The arguments get quite heated. I’m happy to look at whatever people plant, but yesterday I did feel sorry for that palm tree.
      Weird – that is the perfect word to describe the weather in North America this winter.
      btw I finished your friend’s Sarah Bernhardt’s mystery, The Ginseng Conspiracy, last night. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ll star it on Goodreads and Amazon later.
      Enjoy your sunny weather. Thanks for stopping, commenting and being so darn nice.


  2. Slushy rain down here right now! I’m not sure which is worst but not a lot of accidents in ER yesterday fortunately. Hopefully the same will hold true today but if it freezes like this the roads could be nasty. You don’t often get a chance to film your place as a winter wonderland!


    1. Hi Pat
      I wondered about the ER. I haven’t heard many ambulances here. I think people are staying off the roads. The schools are closed for ProD. Power is out on Gabe. Life on the coast, lol.
      I did enjoy my walk yesterday, and hope to get out today if it’s not too wet.
      I hope you don’t have a difficult commute to the hospital. Take care. I’ll be thinking about you.
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting.


  3. I woke up to a heavy slushy snowstorm. For some reason it made me think of a milkshake. I love snow, as a rule. But today it was inconvenient. I was to pick up
    an elderly friend from the ferry.Luckily her daughter has four wheel drive and stepped in. I had four deer in my backyard this afternoon.They were sheltered under my big cedars. I feel for the wildlife in weather like this, even if it’s not that cold. Tonight I’m going to build a fire in my wood stove and toast myself. I need to get rid of the day’s chill and catch up on my Kindle backlog. Good to chat with you my friend.


    1. Hi Helena
      Your wood fire sounds wonderful.
      I’m glad your friend made it to the ferry and you didn’t venture out on the roads. They were awful. The deer must be a little traumatized.I hadn’t thought about that. I bet your cats weren’t too impressed either. lol. I like the way our house cat shakes his paws when he touches snow.
      Hope the sun melts it all away today.
      Thanks for stopping by for a chat.


  4. Love your pics, Jo-Ann. Inion and I are loving the extended winter, though we hope that everyone is keeping warm and staying safe. We’re born and bred Southwest Floridians, (seven generations Floridians) and moved to the Smokey Mountains just so we could experience all four seasons. In Florida there’s only one… Hurricane Season. LOL. Hope all is well with you and yours. Sending you some of our Smokey Mountain sunshine. 😉


    1. Hi ladies
      Thanks so much for stopping by. I love your visits. I have relatives in Florida. It’s a beautiful state. I love your hurricane season comment.
      Your message worked. We have sunshine and its slowly melting the snow.
      Best wishes
