Already this season we have had snow in Nov., twice in December including a grand White Christmas. Here on January 11th, we've already had additional snow three times: It snowed Friday and covered the ground, but melted and I was able to go do my exercise. It snowed six inches during the night on Sunday, Monday (Jan10) more and snow to wintery mix today on Tuesday, Nov. 11. My drive down the mountain is impassible. I don't know when I'll get out of here. It makes me think of the true Appalachian people. They endured because they are strong.

In Atlanta, where I have a number of loved ones, it is treacherous, even now. Yesterday, Jan.10th, I sat in front of the t.v. all day hoping my children there were safe. The announcers kept saying "first snow".
At this moment, Nov. 11th, the t.v. is blaring news of Atlanta's Interstate highways blocked. Semi trucks jack knifed and a swarm of trucks have sat at standstill for over twenty four hours. It looks like one giant truck stop. The word treacherous is being used over and over again by every announcer.
Back on the homefront, I have everything I need, including water, food, heat and four furry friends.
This is an adorable puppy that was lost, stranded on the mountain several times this winter. She has spent more than one night in my house on freezing nights. The first night I let her in was in December when it was five degrees. Now, I suspect she thinks she lives here. Below, Nugget and Smoky aka MR. Whiskers.
