First real snow of the year

January 20th, 2016 at 11:03 am

Today, we are getting our first real snow of the season. I know it has snowed before, you can see the snow on the mountains in the distance. We live in the mountains and the highest peak in Georgia is Brasstown Bald, here in Blairsville, just a few miles away. As a matter of fact, the cabin we are building (and have already sold) has a wonderful view of Brasstown Bald and the mountains.
The snow came down quickly starting about noon and has already covered the ground. I called dh and he came home from work. He does not want to get stuck over at the cabins.
Because we live in N. Ga., we don't have much of a snow removal system. Snow is pretty, but I am glad it does not usually last too long.
I talked to Navy Federal Credit Union yesterday. They got the check I sent them and they opened my Certificate of deposit over the phone.
Unfortunately, the great special that they had on c.d.'s ended on Sunday. It was 2.5% for 30 months.

I have a big c.d. coming due on Feb. 28th and I had planned to put it all in this Navy Fed. C.U. special cause they thought it would last until April.
Now, I will have to find some place else to put it.

Navy Federal still has a 20 month c.d. for 2% but the maximum amount is $20,000. This c.d. I just opened was perfect, cause it had no maximum, but, sadly, I won't be able to take advantage of it cause it has closed.
I hope something else good will open up about the time I need it.
(p.s., I did get to open up a c.d. special for the 2.5 rate, but only one.)

    We're expecting your snow to arrive here late Friday night, to continue all weekend. We're expecting up to a foot, which I'm not looking forward to.
