January Weekend Events: No Winter Time Blues Here! 01/13-15

What a mild winter we have had here in the High Country, and for that matter, all across the country! I think that this is one of those things that is meant to “confound the wise”. I have actually enjoyed not having to keep up with a heavy coat, gloves, hat, etc., but the fact remains that while many people do not like the snow and winter weather, it has hurt the economy with the lack of winter snow sports, skiing, snow boarding, and more. That eventually trickles down into our pockets here in the Boone area. I know it does for my business!

There is still time for some good snow events though, and like I’ve said before, my husband continues to pray. I have many people asking if he is praying for this weekend, and he loves it responding, “Everyday”!

Regardless of what kind of weather we are having, we can determine to be joyful and have fun! There are no winter time blues here! Take a look at what is happening around the county and bring family and friends along. Your enthusiasm will spread!

Also, take time to remember the great Martin Luther King Jr. and the special man that he was! Who can forget his famous words, “Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, I’m free at last”!
