I offer the current weather conditions in this part of North Carolina. We are in the midst of a winter storm. Br-r-r-r. It’s cold. How’s that for official? Looking out from our windows, it doesn’t have the dramatic appearance of a huge snowfall. Instead we are getting sleet and freezing rain. It may peter out or it could be that ice will accumulate which could take us down a different path entirely. This is a photo I took this afternoon before the storm arrived. Tomorrow it may look different.
What does one do when the governor urges people to stay off the roads while the power is still on? We decided to make (and eat!) chocolate pastries.
Thanks to my daughter’s recommendation a few weeks ago, we had a treat this wintry evening.
And while our electricity is still on (& we hope it stays that way!), I decided to continue keeping my hands busy with beads and wire.
I’m also including this photo of an artistic stacking of orange slices because I’m fairly certain the friend who did it will fall over in a fit of laughter because I posted it here. And everyone can use a good laugh now and then.
If there are any good storm photos to be had tomorrow, I will check back in. As of now, here’s what we’re seeing. It looks quiet but we can hear the sleet hitting the frozen surfaces. As I said earlier, br-r-r-r.
