Snow in the Southern Appalachian Mountains Dec. 12 & 13, 2010

Snow at day break and  more snow during the afternoon.
8:06 p.m. It is still snowing.  My question always seems
to be -- why does snow cover the road first? You know I
often say, "You can get here from there." But, not now.
Stay where you are and stay warm and safe.

More snow all night long. I looked out and saw
horizontal snow.  December 13, 2010, its cold
and still snowing

Monday afternoon, it's clear and cold. 7 degrees predicted tonight.  Stay warm.

We got a lot of snow too Nancy. We're staying put today and wrapping packages and doing a little decorating.
