The highway to Highlands was clear in spots and in other spots—not so much. Yikes! I didn’t plan to go all the way up to this point in North Carolina, but once we started the trek, there wasn’t a place to turn around! The snow plows had kept the roadway clear but had only piled the snow up on the side of the roads covering every entrance to every secondary roads and every overlook! People were stuck at the overlooks and I decided not to “4 wheel” into one of those!
We arrived at Highlands, North Carolina, and immediately headed for Mountain Fresh Grocery (MFG) because we knew it would be open and we were right. For some reason, we call MFG The Market. I have no idea why—we just do!
Then we walked into “The Market,” which has become our refuge for coffee and pizza and more. But on this snowy day, there was no pizza. The ovens were off and just a few staff members had made it into work. So, we settled for water and coffee and snacks.
Anne is ordering two donuts and gave both away. Because they were homemade, they were gladly accepted! Thank you, Anne! After all, I had no idea whether we would get back home or not. So at this point, all food was accepted.
