What a difference a week makes........

Last week we were finishing up a vacation in the Carolinas......walking the Grand Strand in North Myrtle Beach......enjoying the warmth of some 80 degree days.......relaxing with the soothing sounds of the waves on the shore.....exercising in the pool....... Angel enjoying her first visit to the shore (Click HERE to see a pic of our cutie playing near the ocean.)

AND NOW..........The picture has changed.....



Our state is dealing with the results of a nor'easter.......some parts of the state got as much as 18 inches of snow.  Our accumulation is not so much because the first few inches were followed by a period of rain......and then we gained a few more inches overnight.  It is predicted that some areas will be without power for more than a week.  Thankfully, our power did not go out at all!!!!

The state broke records with this storm.......the most snow to fall in October in recorded history.....AND....the most people without power ever, breaking the record set this summer with Hurricane Irene.

Mother Nature can be such a sassy and unpredictable force.

I think mother nature is losing her grip after the weather we've had for the past few years! The snow was pretty, but the ice and power outages left behind aren't!! Your little pooch looks like she doesn't quite know what to make of it all :)

Gosh, what a change..from the ocean to the snow in a matter of a few days. Your pup is the cutest thing ever.

It's hard to believe all the snow I'm hearing about. That may make it hard for trick or treaters. It's beautiful here and I'm ready for all those ghosts and goblins tonight. It's always a lot of fun.
