Welcome to February!

Abandoned house along SR 264 near Englehard, North Carolina

I mentioned that we had a new house, right? 🙂

I received a number of favorable comments on a similar photo I posted last week and I thought it made for an interesting subject, so I processed another shot from that same location to share as this month’s wallpaper.  I thought about using a snow photo, but for some of us, we’re hoping that the little bit of snow we got this past week means that we’re done for the year and that we can get on to spring.  We’ll see how that works out, but that is the optimist’s view!

Well here we are, already into the second month of the year.  I know I am looking forward to finishing the moving in process at just about the time the weather warms up enough to make getting outside a bit more enjoyable.  Here in the south, February can sometimes mean an early spring or it can mean “don’t hold your breath.”  I’ve got my hopes on an early transition.  We’ll see what happens!

  1. Boy, don’t I know it. I have shots from last year, February 16th. We got a lot of snow that day. The day before it was nearly 70, sunny, and breezy. Who knows what will happen in February. I surely don’t! 🙂

    Love the photo; I hope that’s not your newly built house. 😀

    1. Thanks, Paul. That’s one of the things that makes winter/spring in the Carolinas so interesting!

      No, this is definitely not our new house! It’s not a bad location, but needs a little more work that I want to put in right now. 🙂

  2. It was 0 degrees this morning at 6:30. I decided to wait until the sun rose and the temperature rose to 5 degrees before going for my walk. Smart move. I can sympathize with you on moving in funky weather. Hope that all works out for you guys.

    1. We were walking around in t-shirts yesterday but it’s supposed to get back to our “normal” 40s for the next few days. No lows below freezing for the foreseeable future, although I may have just jinxed that with my comment! 🙂

    1. Thanks, John. I didn’t have the time or the footware to spend too much time here, but will definitely have it high on my list the next time I’m in the area. There are many more scenes like this in eastern NC. Old and abandoned boats are another favorite.
