Sniveling About Snow

I’m ready to pack my bags.

One of my ancestors settled in a town called Summertown, Tennessee, after the Civil War. That sounds nice doesn’t it, Summertown?  Conjures up images of porch swings and lemonade.

I Googled it.

Population 3,552. It has 4 gas station/convenience stores, 3 resturants, 1 bank, 1 variety store, 1 grocery store, 1 auto parts store, 1 used car lot, 1 golf course and absolutely no traffic lights.

My kind of place!  And then I read more…

it also has a cult intentional community called “The Farm,” which is based on principles of nonviolence and respect for the Earth, basically hippies.

Shearing sheep and spinning yarn wouldn't seem at all weird there! But wait, there’s even more…
Average temperature in the winter is ABOVE FREEZING.

I believe I have met my destiny.

Sounds really quaint (minus the hippies ;) At the verrry least it calls for a roadtrip!! ;)

I like the first snow of winter and that's it. Well we've had it, now I'm ready to go mushroom hunting!

I thought you guys wanted water?

We had a little snow in Pittsburgh today and I can't say I'm all that thrilled. On the other hand, it's not 97 degrees with matching humidity.

Send me your new address. ;-)

I forgot to mention earlier that Tim and I are probably moving to Tennessee in the spring. IF he can get a job and IF we can sell our house. Is Summertown any where near Memphis? Son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter are moving there and we want to be near them.

We'll miss you.

That snow yesterday was really strange. In Pendleton, IN, we saw nothing, and the same with the northside of Indy where I work. But one of our co-workers, who lives in Lebanon got about 3". I guess it was the angle it came through. I rather envy you the snow, though. I hate ice, but I love a good snow storm.

Still, The Farm sounds like a neat place.

Thanks, Milah. I want to be near my only son, daughter-in-law and only grandchild. Can't stand the thought of her growing up with me.
