This week’s topic: Where You Live
I live in North Carolina in the US of A. It’s actually perfect whether-wise because we get the best of both worlds. In the summer, we get the heat but not so sweltering you think you’ll die. In the winter, we get a good snow once or twice (and by good, I mean 2 – 8 inches), but it never gets horrible. When it does snow, it’s almost comical because things actually close due to snow. People here go nuts and some won’t even leave their homes for fear of driving in the snow.
It’s also perfect because I’m relatively close to both the ocean and the mountains. Three hours south gets me to Myrtle Beach SC and three hours north gets me to Boone, which is part of the Appalachian Mountains. It’s pretty most of the time. As a kid, I really thought I’d move away when I grew up, but now, I can’t see myself doing that. Anywhere else I go, I’ll have to deal with crazier whether and even though I love the snow, I feel like if I go somewhere where it snows constantly, it’ll lose some of it’s magic. I have that whole Lorelei Gilmore relationship with snow. It’s so pretty and perfect and magical. It feels like the universe’s present to me.
What about you? Where do you live? Let me know in the comments!
