Asheville's Many Modes of Transportation



Sorry I have been neglecting this blog - been taking lots of shots but Blogger is so slow when it comes to downloading photos!  These shots are from downtown Asheville - so many ways to get around besides car and foot!



They have added a horse and carriage ride, A bike version of the rickshaw and then the Pubcycle where you pedal while imbibing the latest micro brews!

Happy Mardi Gras!






 Asheville had its Mardi Gras parade on Sunday March 2 this year.  It was a lovely day int he 60s which made it nice for viewing and for being in it.  The theme was "Where the Wild Things Are" - a fun one.

"Laissez les bons temps rouler!"

February Snow - 2/12/14


Sherrill's Inn on Rte 74A
We got hammered  with snow - more than we had in a long time.  Monday we got an unexpected 2" of heavy wet snow.  We took a drive when the roads were clear to get supplies before the next storm arrived.  The snow was still stick to the trees and everything looked magical.  We drove on 74A over the ridge to Gerton and  down the other side, up 9 to Montreat,

Our car



 Then Wednesday the storm Pax hit leaving 9"! The county plowed our road on Thursday but we had to shovel the driveway ourselves.  It wasn't until Friday that we could get out and got to town.


Our driveway
 
Poor boxwood crushed under the snow
I hope everyone is shoveled out and that spring will bring some sun and mild temps soon.  We will be 60 degrees today - whoot whoot!
