My daughter, Sarah, posted this on her Facebook today:
“It was sad saying goodbye to the family today in Charlotte. Now I’m safe back in the Banks. Hello old man winter, pleasure to see you again.”
When she says “the Banks,” she’s talking about Fairbanks, Alaska, where the average high in January is 0. The average low is 19 below. Average!
She’s hoping to be back in June for her sister’s graduation.
She’s happy living there. We all had a wonderful visit. Her trip home was safe.
But we had a quiet, very sad day here in Salisbury.
