It seems that way at least. I’ve been to Georgia three times in the last two days. I had some errands to run in town yesterday, but drove the five miles to Georgia to get gas (17¢ cheaper). Then yesterday afternoon, we all went to Georgia for Jenna’s orthodontist appointment. Then tonight we went down to Georgia to see Voyage of the Dawn Treader with the youth group. They were supposed to go last Sunday, but the weather cancelled it, so we made it up tonight. While there is a theater in Murphy, from what I hear, it is very much like the Avalon was in Clarksville. This one in Hiawassee, GA was a nice, big theater. Everyone seemed to have a good time.
Speaking of weather. School has been out for the last four days here. While the main roads are perfectly fine, supposedly there are still people who live up on the mountains that have ice, even though it was 51° at our house today. I guess higher up, in the shade, the ice is slow to melt. The homeschool group is supposed to have a Christmas party tomorrow, but we’ve been getting e-mails from people saying that they are not sure they will be able to get off their particular mountain tomorrow. Something else to get used to—and to think about whenever we get in the market for a house.
For those of you familiar with American Profile Magazine (much like the Parade magazine that comes in the Dallas Morning News), a member of our church was on the front cover of this week’s edition. He is Santa for the Polar Express that runs out of Bryson City, and they ran a story about the train. If you go to americanprofile.com you can see it. Oh, and by the way, the beard is real.
