Old Man Weather Revisits WNC

The April flowers of Western North Carolina ended up with a white blanket overnight. Heavier snow than was predicted moved into the southern end of the county just after daybreak and created some interesting driving conditions. The roads had not been treated with the usual salt brine so they quickly became a skating rink on the southern side of Pigeon Gap. Numerous vehicles were doing the 4-wheel pirouette as we made our way to work today. Snowfall accumulations were reported to be heavier, as expected, along the northern boundary of N.C. – Tennessee. Here are 3 images taken as we left for work today:

Tomorrow’s forecast calls for a return to spring with temperatures in the mid-60’s. While this snow is pretty, I’m ready for SPRING!!!

Until later,

P.S. – more images from walk to lunch!
