A rare and wonderful site
It was wonderful.
Is it possible that after the last toss of winter on Friday we could really be heading into spring weather?
Friday the area was hit with ice.
If you have been through ice storms, as we have, you know that they can be more deadly to trees than snow.
We were lucky to have just cold rain and no ice, but just minutes up the road from us the power lines were snapping right and left. From the northern part of Seagrove through, Asheboro, Randleman, and Greensboro power was going off as fast as the tress were snapping. There are neighborhoods that look as if a tornado touched down.
We have friends who cut for 9 hours yesterday just so they could get out of their driveway. 15 of their trees went down between their house and the road. Not one on the house, they are lucky.
I have such admiration for the folks that keep our power on. They are working hard to bring every one the power that we all take for granted. I know it is hard to live without it, we have been there, but at times, such as this, we need to praise the people out there working on the lines.
This is something I can not wait for.
A grocery store is coming back to Seagrove. A real mom and pop grocery store. This is not a chain, they will carry local meats, dairy and vegetables, along with some stocked goods. There is one in Asheboro that I shop in. I am excited as a tick on a hound dog to think that I can go buy a banana or an onion 5 minutes from my house. As it is now I drive 20-25 .
This can and will change my life, for the better.
Do you think we will pass beer and wine????
I love old house, I grew up in one.
Do I want to own one?
Only for the time I am looking at them.
I would love to go in this house. In fact that is a secret passion of mine. If people would allow me I would rummage through the old houses I see on the roads of North Carolina. I know that they will soon be lost as folks build new and don't repair the old ones. You can see many on the back roads. I want to stop and walk through them.
The addition of that grocery store is so welcome here.
Let's hope that, like the promise of spring flowers, it opens soon.
I see more sun- I am outta here!
