The Primo Hillsbro Snow Show

Updated on December 29, 2010

For this Christmas (December 26th) of 2010 we in Hillsborough, North Carolina, received 5 inches of snow. So as quickly as was feasible, I went walking.

So walk with me on this virtual tour around a beautiful snow covered small town of North Carolina.

I'm beginning at the corner of Churton Street and Nash Extension.

This corner is home to the Hillsborough municipal parking garage behind me.

To my left is the Weaver Street Market. This market is a sister store to the original Weaver Street Market that is on "Weaver Street" in Carrboro, North Carolina.

Winter Song - Sara Bareilles/Ingrid Michaelson- Music Video

As I stand facing Churton Street and the Weaver Street Market, I do an about face and walk across the bridge over the Eno River.

Immediately, I'm looking down on "Earth".

I can see the limbs, trees, and ground below.

An Ode To The Eno

When the world was,

Perhaps, in its prime,

There were an old people,

Of prehistoric time.

And now this once strong,

Occaneechie Band,

Has almost been swallowed,

By the European man.

Let’s go down to the Eno.

Let’s sit on the bank,

And watch the flow,

And imagine where the Eno will go.

Just like the people,

We ask of the flow,

Where does the Eno,

River and people go.

Will you cease to exist,

When you’re watered down?

Will your spirit be lost?

Where will the spirit be found?

If you’re taken into the Sea,

Will the Eno cease to be?

Only adding to other streams,

Until there are no Eno dreams.

But in Alamance County,

There’s a little civilization.

known as the Occaneechie Band,

of the Saponi Nation.

Let’s sit on the bank of the Eno,

And watch that Eno River flow,

Let the Eno River echo,

Peaceful passage for the Eno.

~Micky Dee~

So, I've walked across the river on a pretty bridge and returned on the opposite side of the bridge. Now we'll continue toward downtown Hillsborough.

As I walk north on Churton Street., on the east side of the road is a pretty clearing.

There are many "Historical Markers" on this walk. One of the first I see is regarding a papermill which was one of the first in the country.

No- the "snow road crew" did not "wine up" at the Hillsborough Wine Company.

Above is the rear of the Orange County Courthouse.

This is the entrance to the Orange County Courthouse.

This is the east corner of Churton and King Street.

Dachshunds love the snow.

Nice restaurants and shops adorn Churton St. and the area.

Tupelo's is on the Corner, The Wooden Nickel, the Gulf Rim, and gift shops continue.

Oh yeah! We have a chocolate factory/shoppe right here!!!

I admit I have a $20 a month "almond bark" habit.

The Hillsborough Museum is right here.

I turn left here onto West Tryon Street.

Immediately there is a beautiful church.

Chanticleer - In the Bleak Mid-Winter

The church has a beautiful graveyard as well.

The forms of the head-stones, statues, and obelisks have their very unique aura when the world is blanketed with snow.

Let's take a little excursion.

No Other Love Will Do

It’s a very pretty place.

It’s so quiet here.

Did you whisper?

Can you be so near?

That was another cold day.

That day, that you went away.

I thought I’d drown in tears.

And now, has it been twenty years?

I may as well be;

In that cold ground,

As to be the walking dead,

And stumbling around.

I just miss you.

I can’t love another girl.

So I walk and talk,

And act like part of this world.

There’s not a hand as warm as yours.

There isn’t hair that has your smell.

There isn’t a smile, that’s near your smile,

Not as far as I can tell.

My friends tell me that there soon will be,

Another love down here for me.

But no one holds my hand like you.

And no – no other love will do.

Did you whisper?

Just the wind?

Oh my God,

I miss your grin.

No – there is no-one to woo.

And no - no other love will do.

And if eons I must wander through,

Then eons I will wait for you.

No one can make my words come true.

And no – no other love will do.

And though our love is eons overdue,

There is no true love but you.

~Micky Dee~

Here's a friendly Hillsbro!

I'm still walking on West Tryon Street.

I love the contrasts of this building.

I llove the different shapes, especially as they are highlighted in white powder.

If it were not for the snow I would be tempted to get in a little "stair-master" work!

I love the angles.

At this "old county building" there is an intersection with Hassel Street.

A left turn will shorten the "walk around".

This part of town is laid out in "squares" - mostly.

So- making two lefts here or further up would take me back to the center of town where I started.

Chimney Sweep

What lives in this forest deep?

All that lives appears to sleep.

Not a squirrel or a deer to leap.

Not a single chirp or a cheep.

Not one creature makes a peep.

Neath the soil things seep and creep.

And what, may I ask, will the new spring reap?

And then again, what will this winter keep?

And though every home is a snowy heap,

Business is good for the chimney sweep.

~Micky Dee~

A left on Occaneechie Street or a left on Nash Street can shorten the route.

A left turn will take me to West King Street and further to Margaret Lane.

I continue on my straight path on West Tryon.

Eventually I will run out of sidewalk.

But on a day like today, traffic on the roads is no problem for me.

West Tryon has become Latimer Street.

Up ahead I can see Hayes Street.

I'll take a left on Hayes and soon take a left on West King.

A short walk on West King and I turn right on Holt Street.

I now turn left on Webb Street.

Webb brings me to Nash Street and I cross Nash as West Margaret Lane begins.

I love Margaret Lane.

You can see the neighbors protect this tree whose roots protrude into the lane.

Who Are The Souls Who Sleep Here?

Who are the souls who sleep here?

These are souls so Dear!

Unknown Souls are buried ahead,

Sweet souls too poor to mark their dead.

Listen and you can hear the sound,

Of beautiful beloved neath the ground.

People of color, lives of toil,

Lie unknown, beneath the soil.

Graves without markers, but not without love.

And every name, is written above.

~Micky Dee~

There's a snow-ball fight ahead and I'm out of ammo.

Cabbage Patch Park is at the corner of Margaret Lane and Occaneechie.

Complete with a water fountain for the pets.

I love Margaret Lane. It's perfect for walking and bike riding.

Margaret Lane has quite a few stop signs and makes car traffic slow.

Folks in a hurry take West King which is wider with sidewalks.

More beautiful woods right in the center of town.

I could take Margaret straight and shorten my walk but I want to see the church.

So, I turn left onto Wake Street.

I'm going to turn onto West King Street for the beautiful homes nearby.

As I look further up Wade Street, I see a skier enjoying the snow.

To my left is a grand home!

I've turned right and I'm walking east on West King toward Churton.

I'm only walking a block or so to Churton but there's still a lot to see.

Across the street is the old hotel and it's getting a face-lift.

Just up ahead is "Cup of Joe" coffee shop which is right next door to a French pastry shop.

And we're back to Churton!

Don't forget pastries, coffee, and just around the corner is Mathew's Chocolate!

There is much more beauty and interesting things to see.

This is the short walk for sure.

I take my right past quaint shops and restaurants.

It must be dinner time somewhere!

So I've returned to the Weaver Street Market (that isn't on Weaver Street here).

The Weaver Street Market is a "co-op" with many owners.

They have great food and very often host "music on the grass".

This has been a walk of about two miles.

The snow was very pleasant!

I'll bet there are walks just like this near you that you should write a story about.

Show us your pictures. Let us walk with you.

God bless!

Churton Street and Exchange Park Lane:
S Churton St & Exchange Park Ln, Hillsborough, NC 27278, USA

The map above has the "pin" at the beginning. However, Nash Extension is a new street. The Weaver Street Market is new, and the municipal parking garage is new. So- these things, and especially "Nash Street Extension", are not on the map.

      Wow Katie! I am so glad you had a good time! We've had a couple of light snows. We had about 4 last year. Of course further west in the mountains, the snows more and are more often. It's fairly low altitude here.

      I walked around but I was recovering from an operation and just took an easy walk. If I was recovered from the op I would have tried to mountain-bike around town.

      God bless you Katie dear!

      WOW what a keepsake, I mean how often does this happen? The snow really puts things in a different light, it is beautiful.

      I must ask, how did you get around to document all of these great sites? Did you walk, bike or drive? I love the snow man! The trees are all so beautiful and the church.

      This is a very lovely place, your Hillsbro. Now I must ask, how did the squirels take it? I loved this. It was 60 degrees here on new years eve, I took a spring walk...

      The beginning and end with the picture of you in the mirror, how cool, very cool indeed you mad artist you!

      Love and Peace :) Katie

      Beautiful analogy! "And what, may I ask, will the new spring reap? And then again, what will this winter keep? And though every home is a snowy heap,Business is good for the chimney sweep."

      Thank you dear Sally's Trove! That just shows to go you - I sometimes don't know what I'm saying unless there's an interpreter! God bless. Please be at peace this year and forever!

      Micky, trust your intuition. Here's what Chimney Sweep said to me.

      All appears quiet, but there is something stirring, in a place we don't experience often enough: "Neath the soil things seep and creep." It is the silence of the usual that makes us aware of this place outside of our normal perceptions, which is the place inside ourselves.

      The chimney sweep clears out the conscious soot, if we let him, at the New Year, making us ready to listen to the voice inside. What a refreshing and insightful twist to ringing out the old and ringing in the new.

      So, like I said, trust your gut/intuition. This is a good one. Happy New Year!

      akirchner! I do hope you're sharing those videos! I'll be over to check.

      Please be safe.

      Oh Freya! You must come soon and I'm sure within a year or ten it will snow again like that. You should stay here until you hate snow - at least. God bless you Freya. Be at peace throughout this year and every year!

      Awesome pictures, Micky - I just got back from the real snow country - went up with my malamutes twice this week for some snowshoeing. It was SO beautiful! We're about an hour away and nothing but a couple flakes on the ground but my dogs were in dog heaven! I got a vid the first day and a few pics but yesterday we just rolled in the snow - several feet deep.

      Happy New Year to you!

      There is something so magical about the heavy snow that clings to tree branches. The outside world becomes quiet, giving the inside world a welcomed voice. "Chimney Sweep" captured this feeling for me completely. Thank you so much for taking us on this walk with you.

      Thanks for putting some of my travel hubs at the bottom of your gorgeous hub. Much appreciated, dear Micky!

      These snowy scenes remind me of the ones I grew up enjoying as a child in Wisconsin. Going to bookmark this so that I can come back and look at it again and again. You should enter many of these photos in contests. Bet you would win some prizes!

      Yo Vietnam Vet! I think most folks were at the mall getting refunds. All churches were closed. All malls were open.

      50 - I hate cold weather really. I want to ride my bicycle. I'm glad the "nutting" came at Christmas. If I can't ride - it may as well snow.

      You took us on a beautiful fantasy of snow in Hillsbro and what a snowy journey it was. Beautiful captured moments in time, everything covered in white. It reminds me much of where I live up here in Canada. We are a winter wonderland for a good five months every year.

      Thanks for sharing Micky and I must say your beard blends in beautifully with the snow:0)) Happy New Year brother Amigo and have a safe, healthy and blessed 2011 and beyond. Peace and hugs to ya..

      My dear friend Micky, oh what a splendid town this is, this is the kind of small home feel I always wanted and looked for. You are so lucky to touch and feel such a grand place. This is a place where dreams come true, the pictures are breathtaking, and I love old grave yards. I will sit with you on the dock and watch the flow and follow my dreams as they all move out to sea, then it's time to start new dreams. Our maybe I haven't woke up yet today and this is all a dream. Love this hub, love your heart, and you thoughts. A place to grow in spirit. Have a Happy New Year love & peace darski rate up

      You drive me crazy, uncle. You know my passion about snow and you made this so beautiful. I really enjoy all the pictures about snow. Winter is the best moment in a year. White is a contrast color in winter season and snow always beautiful indeed. Happy New Year, uncle.

      Your nephew, Prasetio

      Beautiful--I felt I was right there with you. It made me a bit homesick. I left NC 20 years ago and would love to find the means to return, to be closer to family and old friends. Got some land on the Eno river, waiting for us... Thanks for sharing your walk!

      I like that Micky Dee at play sign! You live in a beautiful town and the pictures are lovely. Snow makes everything look so clean and like a Christmas card. Your poetry made it perfect. Thank you for the walk and the videos! In the Bleak Midwinter is one of my favourites :)
