Betsy Fibbed To Me — And To You

Betsy enjoying a snow bank in the Smokies. March 9, 2010.

If you’re a regular reader of Betsy’s blog, you were very surprised when she said a couple of weeks ago that she was tired of snow and she was now ready for Spring. I was personally very shocked when she wrote that.  I’ve heard her complain bitterly about the lack of snow during some of our recent winters.

As you know, Betsy arranged a birthday trip for us to celebrate my 68th birthday.  We stayed at a wonderful cabin in the Smokies near Cosby, Tennessee.  Tuesday morning we decided to travel to Tallulah Gorge in Georgia to revisit the waterfalls there (remember that we both have new cameras!).

The drive was only a couple of hours, but it took us over the mountain at Newfound Gap.  As we headed up the mountain we started to see snow along the side of the road.  The higher we got, the more snow we saw.  The road was clear, but the piles along the side were quite high in places.  Of course, we stopped a few times to take pictures.  Guess who was grinning from ear-to-ear!

Betsy tired of snow?  Don’t believe it for a minute!

    Haha!! Too funny George. It seems funny to me to see so much snow in the South.
    It does sound (according to Betsy) that you had an excellent birthday trip. Many more to come your way. MB

    Happy Birthday George!!! All the best for the coming year! Haven’t been around much this week and want to catch up on all the blog reading. So glad you had a terrific birthday celebration trip! And I wasn’t fooled for a moment about Betsy! I LOVE snow too, but it’s ok to be parted from snow for a few months again until Christmas, LOL! It’s just unbelievable for me though that many places east and south of us have had more than we did! Enjoy your week-end!

    Belated Happy Birthday, George. That’s a mighty big snow ball Betsy is about to climb.
    My husband and I had a wonderful time when we visited Tallulah Falls. It one of the most spectacular places we ever visited.

  12. diane Says:

    Happy Birthday for last week. At least it doesn’t look as cold in the snow as it was a few weeks ago.

  13. Fishing Guy Says:

    George: Sure, it great when it is for a visit rather then hanging around your house.

  14. moorebloglife Says:

    Glad you had a good trip, how was the water falls? anything significant?

  15. Tootie Says:

    That’s too funny George!

  16. Carletta Says:

    I just knew the trip would have waterfalls! I bet when that snow begins to melt the waterfalls will be even more spectacular.

    It’s good that you’re around to keep us informed and her ‘honest’ about such things … LOL 😉
    Hugs and blessings,
