I just wanted to post since I have been totally swamped since the middle of October. DH and I vacationed around Boone, NC for ten days and we were suprised with SNOW!

So...we missed the fall burst of color, most of the leaves had been blown away. It was still a wonderful vacation an one we greatly needed!
