More snow!

Another Friday, another snowfall. Well, sorta. It’s turned to freezing rain and ice, but earlier in the day we had some big, fat snowflakes. They were quite gorgeous. I never have seen snowflakes that looked so much like…snowflakes!

Snow day

The slightest bit of snow in the south shuts down schools, wipes out milk supplies at grocery stores and causes general mayhem. Frankly, it’s kinda cool. Here are a few frames from my day of snow coverage.

Heading to bed soon so I can wake up with the sun to shoot photos of tonight’s snowfall, but I couldn’t resist snapping one out the front door before turning in.

Last weekend one of my dearest friends in the world turned 30. To celebrate, 13 people and 4 dogs escaped to the mountains just north of Asheville. It was a beautiful weekend with unseasonably warm weather, good food and drink and lovely people. I purposefully left my DSLR in its bag the entire time and only snapped a few iPhone photos, snazzing them up a bit using Instagram. I left feeling proud to call North Carolina home and grateful for time with friends. Happy birthday, Kendrick!

Richard Petty

I had the chance recently to hang out with The King himself, Richard Petty. He was in town to deliver a ceremonial Meals on Wheels meal to Mary Lee Slawter to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Senior Services program. He had some help from long-time volunteer Hellen Prichard, who also got a pretty sweet Richard Petty-style hat to wear around.

I had heard that this NASCAR legend was really great to fans and supporters. And sure enough, he was one of the most friendly and patient famous people I’ve ever come across. He stayed until everyone had gotten a photo with him or snagged an autograph. I’ve never followed NASCAR, but I’m now an official fan of The King.
