NC is my home state, I’m from Jacksonville, near the Marine base at Camp Lejeune. If you like warm weather you’ll like it there. In the summer, Fayettville is often the hot spot of the state. Glad your husband was able to get a new job. Good luck with the move.December 6, 2009 at 1:34 am #8145
Thanks Mommytutu. I’m excited about it. i’ve lived in TN for 2 years so I know the weather! I called my husband today and he said it was only 46 and that it was chilly. I told him he hasnt been down there long enough for 46 degrees to be chilly! We are definetly happy about being back south and just in time to leave the snow behind!December 17, 2009 at 5:02 pm #8514
Nora, glad to hear that you are happy to be heading south. Your right, he shouldn’t be calling 46 cold. I lived in MN for 4 yrs, so now in WA 46 is nice. Hope you have a great Christmas and a safe move.December 21, 2009 at 2:57 am #863253tdogsParticipant
Nora – just read where NC got about 2 to 4 inches of snow so far in the blizzard of ’09 as the headlines are calling it now – goodness! I hope you brought your snow shovel with ya on the move! Stay warm!December 21, 2009 at 1:41 pm #8640
Hi guys, well yes, some parts of NC did get snow, like Asheville, I think thats north of us. I’m in Fayetteville, we didnt get any snow!December 26, 2009 at 4:24 pm #8845
Asheville is in the moutains–more the foothills just before you hit the Appalachian Trail. Nora, when the weather is better and you’re moved in, go there and visit the Biltmore House. It is gorgeous! If you are there a couple of days go up to Boone, eat at the Daniel Boone Inn, it’s family style and yummy. Then go and visit Blowing Rock for some beautiful views of the Appalachians.December 27, 2009 at 3:32 am #8878
Mommytutu, Thanks! I know about Biltmore, we might go there sometime. I read about that when we lived in TN and wanted to go. But he said since we’re closer it’ll be easier to go up there. And I’ve been to Boone! I’m actually related to Daniel Boone, I found that out when I did my family tree in high school, I forget how I’m realted to him. I almost went to Appalation State university when I was first applying to colleges!December 28, 2009 at 11:24 pm #8935GoodyParticipant
Mommytutu, my grand daughter is a senior in high school; she was planning to go to college in Boone, NC because of their great art program. Her plans have changed because of the high out of state tuition; she will have to go to a community college here in TN. Unlike Salem, we do not have any MONEY trees here!
When she visited there, she fell in love with the area and thought it was absolutely beautiful.
