Where Am I?

Where Am I?

Back in Alabama now…the drive seems to get longer every time I make it, but family and friends are worth the effort.  I was expecting snow most of the way and had prepared myself for a long, stressful ride in snow and Ice, but luck was on my side as the ride north was fairly clear…the ride back the same.  What I wasn’t quite prepared for was the three inches of snow on the ground in Alabama when I returned.  When I left Woodstock the temp was about 28 F and when I finally made it back to Huntsville the temp was 29 F.  So what’s up with that?  This was the first white Christmas in Huntsville in the last 21 years!!!  Anyway, I thought it would be fun if you guessed which of the two following photo’s was taken in Woodstock Illinois and which was taken in Huntsville Alabama.

 

Where was this taken photo #1

 

Where was this taken photo #2

 

If you need a knowledgeable real estate professional in Madison or Huntsville Alabama area, why don't you let me Google that for you!  I also know outstanding agents in all states and Canada should you need help relocating to a new area.

If you had been driving up from the Florida Keys (low 62) you may have chosen to stay with the family a bit longer. We find that we have to insist that they leave for at least 2 days after a 5 day visit.

Nick,

My guess is Huntsville, AL #1; Woodstock, IL #2

Both look similar from these photos!

I'm glad you made it back safely and had a great holiday road trip!

Nick ~ nice to hear that there were no problems on your drive, coming or going.  My guess is photo #1 is in Woodstock and #2 is Huntsville.

Hi Nick, we have a ton of snow as I'm writing this. At least 10" and it's still snowing. The wind is wild too!

Nick  Having lived on an Illinois farm as a little girl I will say Huntsville - the weather you experienced was too unusual not to photograph

Here's to a fabulous New Year!

Hi Nick!  I was a little bummed I didn't have any accumulation at my house, but a lot of places nearby did.  It was fun watching those fat snowflakes falling!  So is #2 Huntsville?

Kathy-know what you mean re: the family visits.

George-you guys really got hammered...snow blowers/throwers are a good thing.

Patricia-you can't fool a girl familiar with the area.

Dawn-I'm disappointed in you.

Jackie-you guys really got hammered with the snow...stay warm.

Rob-well enjoy and stay safe...easy for me to say...most of the snow here is gone already.

Ed-very strange indeed.  Photo #1 is Alabama.  Photo #2 is looking east from my home in Woodstock.

Karen-see my answer to Ed.

Lee & Pamela-and a very Happy New Year to the both of you.

Gene-I don't try to make sense of the weather any more...have a good one.

Diane-sorry but, no brass ring for you.

Ann-quite a surprise for Alabama and the southeast in general.  #2 is a horse farm next to across from my home in Woodstock Illinois.
