I look out the living room window and see fine snowflakes falling gently from the sky. But, no, I am not on the island. I am in Indiana visiting Lou Ann, and it is cold and beautiful outside. Joan & Ernest are staying in my home on Ocracoke, enjoying the weather there. My daughter, Amy, tells me that it is warm (in the mid-60s) and sunny. Well I'll be home in just a few days. I'll leave Lou Ann reluctantly and I'll bring a little bit of the mid-west back with me. In a few months Lou Ann will be back on the island, enjoying the sand and the sea. Look for her this summer at the counter of the Village Craftsmen.
