A public self exploration of a discontented Appalachian Irishman, who is tired of life's mediocrity, and who propagates all that is good in the Appalachian and Irish way of life.

More House Mountain Snow!
Yes! We had a real snow for a change! The Appalachian Irishman measured four inches in his yard, in the early afternoon before his hike yesterday. The freezing rain of late morning may have diminished the total. Is there hope for global cooling?
Two snows in one month (albeit, the first, on January 9 was light) bring back childhood memories of several good snows each winter.
Enjoy the views, this time mostly of mountain streams and trails. A cloud covered House Mountain, with heavy snow falling, which prevented any scenic shots from the bluffs.
Raised in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, of hearty Irish stock, under the godly influence of my mother and the independent, fiery temperament of my father. Did mission work in Russia for five years. Married to a good wife who puts up with me. Read my posts and learn more!
