North Carolina experienced its first blast of winter weather Friday in the form of snow and ice. We’ve enjoyed nesting, celebrated power coming back on to warm our homes, and have tried not to fall into holiday habits that we’ve been ignoring — such as excessive carbohydrates and sugar.

Snow looks much more elegant draping across vintage cars and downtown streets.
Can you imagine waking up to see the power lines down like this? We remember it during Hurricane Hugo, but not sure we’ve ever known snow to cause this type of damage.
The Grove Park Inn is one of our favorite spots and this photo of the Inn makes us wish we were sitting in a rocking chair in front of their roaring fireplaces.
