Living in the mountains, the weather is always unpredictable, so nothing like a little May Snow Day to bring some excitement to Chez Herd.
Yes, we said snow. When we tell people we live in North Carolina, people unfamiliar with our state assume we are hot and snowless. But the mountain region of the state has the highest mountain peaks east of the Mississippi River and very unpredictable weather. Nearby Mount Mitchell, the highest point on the east coast, has had measurable snow fall all twelve months of the year. And we have not seen above 80ºF (26ºC) in a couple of years.
Our temperatures hovered just above freezing yesterday and Mother Nature provided us with a series of snow showers throughout the day. The snow never threatened to accumulate, though there were a few brief periods during the day when our yard turned white. Still, we enjoyed the late season flurries.
It was a perfectly spectacular Siberian Husky day and we sat out in the falling snow as much as possible. Too bad it only stuck to our coats.
So we present this week’s Film Friday episode – May Snow Day. Hope you enjoy it.

Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,500 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window. This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
