Taste Local Wines

Today another article I wrote was published in the web site. Buying local wines is always a treat, and extra special when buying from these types of shops. Check it out!

Road Closed

This is my exit off 340 and Mt. Zion road where I live. If Ballenger Creek Pike (road parallel to 340 on the south side) is not cleared, then my neighborhood (and others) are stuck in our homes. The photo was taken right near the entrance ramp to get into 340 - the way I would go to work.

Tony and I saw this on the news last night. All day yesterday we heard helicopters (rescuing people) and snow plows. In the news last night, one plower stated it took 8 hours to clear 1/4 mile of road!

No such thing as global warming here!

7 Jan 2010 Snow photos the day after

It's a beautiful morning, but I can't get out of my house. These were taken from my bedroom window. As you can see, the street is plowed. A neighbor had an emergency, so two HUGE plow trucks barreled through the neighborhood in minutes. I wish I had my camera with me last night, as I had never seen these types of plow trucks before - something out of a movie.

A few other photos

First photo is looking down from the second floor near the kitchen/breakfast area.
Second photo: Kitchen roof.
Third photo: looking out to the front/right area of the property.

Fourth photo: From the second floor of my house looking towards the front door/steps. The brick portion facing directly in front is the side wall of the garage. You can see the snow is half way up the wall towards the roof. No cars are getting out of the garage this weekend!

6 February 2010 Snow!

These were taken this morning. So far, we've gotten about 24 inches of snow. The snow will continue throughout the day, and will probably get a total of around 30 inches or more. I don't recall a winter like this before. I used the tube from Christmas wrap for my ruler.
