The snow that started falling on Christmas Day here in NC has accumulated to about 6″ and counting. Those of you reading this who live in the north or midwest will get a kick out of the following:
Lt. Gov. Dalton, in consultation with Gov. Perdue, declared a State of Emergency for the entire state due to this winter storm.
I typically do not care for winter weather. I can become quite pouty if the temperature drops below 70 degrees (it’s 31 right now) and the artist in me cannot stand to look at an all-white canvas for too long. I keep hoping a Cardinal will fly by the window soon. However, it is rare that we get real snow. Our typical winter weather consists predominantly of sleet or freezing rain… and everything becomes a solid sheet of ice. It is refreshing to have powdery snow for once, and as crazy as it sounds, I have to admit I’m kind of okay with it.
I trekked out this morning with the DSLR to capture this unusual winter wonderland. My pup, Bogey, tagged along for the fun!
