Snow Dogs

Snow Dogs

The winter storm blew through and let us unscathed with much less snow and ice than predicted and the sun made an appearance yesterday to help melt some of it away. We feel very fortunate to have power after watching all the storm coverage. . . And are thankful to be able to sweep away inches of snow, rather than shoveling feet of…

DSC_9070-001

We’re getting some much-needed rain and we’re pretty dog gone excited about it! It’s going to take a lot more rainy weekends to fill up the lake but we’ll take what we can get.

 Fall is only a week away by the calendar and while it may take longer for Mother Nature to get the memo here in the South, I’m counting down the days!  We had a some cooler weather over the weekend with morning temperatures in the 50s and highs in the 70s, making it enjoyable to be on the…

We’ve been a little glum about the lack of water in the pond.  .  . We’ve had a few pop up showers this week, any rain at all is welcome!  Lake Norman is about 5 1/2 feet down from full pond. Staring at red clay doesn’t quite evoke the same feelings of calm and serenity as a…
