Hey, look! Snow!

Seven Devils, N.C., "enjoys" quite the range in elevation. This range results in some quite severe (for North Carolina, at least) weather patterns. It could be pleasant and nice in nearby Wilkesboro, N.C., yet windy, brutally cold and snowing up at Our Mountain Place, which is up near the top of Hanging Rock Mountain (and near Hawksnest).

Some good friends of ours stayed at the old Honey Bear House recently -- right when 7D was "blessed" with about 14 inches of snow(!).  Fortunately, this was good; our friends were up there to do some skiing. Hooray!

Anyway, this footage (from YouTube, not from our friends) doesn't really illustrate 14  inches of snow, but it does give a glimpse of what it would look like right around town hall.
