Our town experienced a gas shortage like so many in the south. I don't think it was as bad as some places like Atlanta and Charlotte. We never had long lines of cars waiting for gas nor people having to wait extended periods of time. Many of our stations were out of the higher grade gas but still had regular gas and a few stations actually sold completely out of all gas by the end of the week. This reminded me of a time in the 70's when I was in college and became stranded in Charleston due to no gas. I had gone home with a roommate to visit her parents. It extended our weekend visit by a few days. Needless to say, my parents were not too happy I had left school knowing there was a shortage of gas and then missing classes.
The warmth of fall colors is beginning to spread. On a short trip to Greenville yesterday, these are some of the sites that brought joy to my heart:
Leaves changing colors
New crop of sweet potatoes (bought a bushel----love them taters!)
Fresh cut hay
Finally, a result of our short trip....homemade apple pie with mountain apples - yum!
