At 4:19am a thundering wind volubly beats a tattoo on our slide toppers and awnings simultaneously snatching a peaceful slumber from me. I stumble outside into the black tempest. I secure our patio furniture and realize that today is going to be a “trying” day in New Bern. Since Snowmageddon most days here have been “promising.” On those days the still winter weather masquerades as Spring. The sunny, delicate breezes coax blossoms and buds to boldly emerge all over the city. But today it seems that Mother Nature is determined to blow all premature evidence of Spring away. The high temperature today will be in the 50s. However 50 mph wind gusts chill everything in a frustratingly winter like way.
Pre-Spring Pictures of New Bern
Like a timid tortoise I huddle inside the slide retracted RV hoping that nothing is ripped off by the destructive winds. To relax, I look back over the pictures I took recently on more favorable days. Perhaps these shots will sooth you too!

Only person I know that can make SOMETHING out of NOTHING we lived there for 3 years and you have shown us more in these short blogs than we have seen the entire time we were there. Thanks for the memories, have a great day. GOD BLESS
Thanks, but I have to admit that while you were here you had a job to do and a family to raise. I, of course, just have a bunch of time on my hands to spend pounding the pavement looking for pictures to take 🙂
