Wilkesboro got it, too - about 6 inches of snow topped with ice. With 4-wheel drive, I came on in to work but would rather be home doing something creative. Pat, hurry up and get your camera because you need to post more photos. Your "Dresden" one was absolutely beautiful ... very unique! We want to see more!!!
Well, more sleet on the way .....

About your photos. Do you have a scanner? If you do you can scan the photo or the negative to the computer. Then crop it and adjust the color if you need. That works great. So if you have a scanner you don't need a digicam. Beside, the scanners are less $$ Hope that helps.
We are in a 10year drought here in the great southwest
I can't remember what rain looks like
You all stay warm. Tonight our low is 18 BRRRR!

Take care in driving everyone if you are getting some snow - it seems to be spreading across much of the central and eastern US areas.

This morning, as I was sliding down the toboggan run (that used to be our driveway), I remembered the above quote and to be grateful for the beautiful spring that will come. Oh, forgot to mention that the reason I was sliding down the tobbagon run was because I had fallen on my tush getting the morning paper.
The mountains will be beautiful in the spring .........

I live on Long Island, New York and this is the worse Winter I have seen in years. I am surrounded by Ice and Snow which never melted because of the freezing temperatures, yes, it actually hit 40 degrees below 0, ouch!
We are expecting at least 10 inches of snow tonight through tomorrow with more Ice. I am going out soon to stock up on the necessities as I do not want to drive in the Snow and Ice. Accidents are being reported everywhere, the roads are dangerous, and I can't wait for Spring to finally arrive!
I have my Knitting which I love doing and I think I will clean out a couple of closets.

KK we do have a scanner but I wouldn't have a clue as to how it works. It's on my husbands computer and he curses it every time he tries to use it. I think I'll try to borrow the digital camera again. Love your picture of the fan and rose.

Here's another solution you might try ... when you take your 35 mm film to be developed, ask that the photos be put on a CD. You will then be able to upload them to the site.

Martha C and Denise.......
I cannot imagine how cold it must be there. I just don't see how you function at all in that kind of weather. How do you get out? How do you breathe? I would be falling on my "tush" constantly ....which would keep me inside for sure!
You cannot imagine how "lovely" I look squirming around, flopping back and forth and worst of all......."trying" to act as if nothing.......absolutely nothing is wrong. My children tell me I am "Lucy" and I guess I am!!
Anyway everyone....please be careful in this ice and snow. I'm thinking of you from Garland Texas where it is currently 48 degrees!!

After the day I've had with the Ice and Snow, reading your post gave me a much needed chuckle...
2 hours to get home from work, after chipping the ice off the car windows for 1/2 hour. Driving was like ice-skating in a car...unbelievable. Pulled into the driveway safely, got out, thought all was well, and promptly fell flat on my derriere! (sp?) So I can relate to the embarassment...looking for neighbors who may have noticed...trying to look as though I wanted to do that...and just wimpering all the way into the house. And yes, falling is extremely humbling. Be glad only Charlie saw you...he'll keep it to himself, am sure, as any best friend would do.
Hope you didn't get more than your pride injured...maybe tomorrow we can make snow angels. Supposed to get 8 to 10 more inches of the white stuff overnight.

Ok everyone , the cold has now settled here.
Yesterday it was 75 and today 32.
Had to put a blanket around our palm trees.
Brrrrrrrrr in Baton Rouge.
