After enduring the single digit weather for what seemed to be an eternity we decided to get away for a few days. Anywhere. As long as it was warm!

We went to North Carolina. We had never been there before and enjoyed exploring the area. We visited Holden Beach, Southport and Bald Head Island. It was a neat place to be, very beachy, very relaxed, the architecture was interesting. However an ice/sleet storm and cold weather was heading in so we decided to change locations.

We drove three hours to Raleigh Durham and hopped a flight to Orlando, Florida. The weather was much better there, 65+ degrees and mostly sunny. We were able to spend two full days there visiting Universal and Epcot (for a different view visit the Wikipedia site) entry on Epcot.

Back to our hometown after six days away we seem to have brought the warmer weather with us. Today was actually warm enough to run errands without a winter jacket, hat, scarf, mittens, and long underwear. Perhaps Spring will eventually arrive.

And speaking of Spring I must note that our family mascot, Punxsutawney Phil, did predict 6 more weeks of winter. The countdown has begun!
