A little bit early for Christmas but it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

I was out covering my candy-roasters when I saw a snow flake or two. My neighbor called to tell me that the weather forecaster said it would be down into the upper 20's, thats a little bit chilly for this time of year.

Just in case you would like to know where I live, I live in The Beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Little Switzerland, N.C. 28749, (type that into your search box and you can find me). My great, great grandfather came here in the late 1700's. Don't seem that long ago though!!

I would like to get to know all you people on these forums.

Thank You,
Goldenrod

This picture was taken by me of Lake Laurel in late winter of 2004, Little Switzerland.

Hopefully you can copyright that picture soon, it might end up on a postcard or two. It's absoutely beautiful!

If you don't mind me asking, where do you family migrate from in the 1700s?

That's a very good idea!

That picture is beyond stunning. How beautiful!
Do you hear the tinkling of cow bells, and the shushing of skiis on slopes as in the real Switzerland? Any town named "Little Switzerland" because it reminded someone of the old country must be heavenly! Any more pix to share?

Default Pictures (plenty more)

Hi everyone, I think the wind is going to blow the roof off my house, it's blowing like crazy. And the wind chill is about -2 degrees.

I am very happy you all like my pictures. I will get around to answering your questions after I send you this pic of Mt. Mitchell taken from Three Knobs overlook on The Blue Ridge Parkway in the spring of 2002.

All these picture are copywrited and I own that copywrite. Some of these pics are on myspace, care2.com and friendster.com which are clubs that I also belong to. My attorney works for the U.S. government, and I hope I never see any of them on a postcard or a website. I would say she could get pretty rough.

That is most definatley a beautiful picture. We just got an offer on our home today at last!!! Hopefully we will be in North Carolina before December in our new home. Well we still have to find it. Im thinking of driving up in a few weeks. Trying to sell my home in Florida has been hell so Im hoping it is a buyers market up there to. Our Realtor has sent us lovely pictures for sale. We are looking at maybe Hudson, I would like further north up in the mountains but think it will be difficult for jobs. Husband is a mechanic I will be transfering my nursing crdits up there to finish my RN's. But now that I see the picture of New Switzerland that might be a place we look at. We have been to Boone and Deep Gap several times....love it!!!! It would be nice to see more pictures.

If you all want snow come up to Northern Indiana...it's snowing right now. I didn't realize that it gets this cold so soon in NC. That is what I'm trying to get away from .
