An Alexander County winter snow scene complete with old barn from the 50's in Taylorsville. This is the glorious, peaceful view we have from our front door every time it snows—Appalachian winter heaven! —Courtney Phillips, Taylorsville, EnergyUnited
This is my son Jody’s 1962 Jeep Willy's truck just like his great grandfather's. He bought it with his farming money when he was 13. He is now 16 and drives it to school and on our farm daily. —Jill Mann, Canton, Haywood EMC
This is my granddaughter Karley Davidson's French bulldog, Bella Mia enjoying her first trip to Carolina Beach. —Diana Key, Robbins, Randolph EMC

I’m not much on being cold, but when we had one of those rare big snows in the Triad, I had to run outside to take some pictures. —Elisabeth Perkins, Burlington, Piedmont Electric
I enjoy adventures with my children and we love all of the NC state parks. Here we are at the beginning of a short hike in Lumber River State Park. —Herman Ospina, Lumberton, Lumbee River EMC
