I am among all 8000 people in Black Mountain who wanted to see snow sometime this winter. Well, maybe half of them did. That's what all my friends were saying.
So Mother Gaia is trying her best to give it to us today. Finally.
Nobody has driven or walked on Beech Street yet today. It may be slick. Buncombe County schools are closed, but Charles opened the studio in downtown Black Mountain. I wonder how many folks here will go to work in clay today. Not me. I got cold enough opening the doors to take these pictures. I'm counting that I'll have enough goods to get through this storm, if I do end up being snowbound. I got more litter for the cats and some laundry soap yesterday. The cats will have lots of dry food to eat.
I feel for the folks further north...believe me I do. But for Black Mountain, I guess we're living the saying "be careful what you wish for, you just might get it." Sigh, I'll be so glad to have a chance to wear my snowboots I've been wearing for 2 years without any snow.
