Boy, Did It Snow!

We ended up with about 8" of hard-packed snow.  If it hadn't packed down so much, it would probably have been about 14".  Here are a couple of pix.  The cabin pic is Hickory Hideaway, our 2BR cabin, and was taken today, 21 December.

The other is on one of our trails, taken on the 19th.
P.S. Happy Winter Solstice!

Let it snow!!!!

This photo was taken a couple of years ago at Ash Grove's little waterfall, but it it beginning to look like this now--we have about 2" so far, and the forecast is for snow the rest of the day today and much of tomorrow, too. Put your snow chains on and come on up to the postcard-beautiful Blue Ridge in the snow.

The Holidays in Brevard

Our small town is big on holiday activities.  The Christmas Parade is the first Saturday in December.  There are usually 75+entries, making for a fun and festive afternoon.  That is followed by Twilight Tour--downtown is festooned with over 1000 luminaria, entertainment in the courthouse gazebo, the shops provide refreshments, and more.  The Festival of Trees is usually that weekend as well.  And of course, Brevard's world-famous Aluminum Tree Museum provides kitchy fun for the whole family.  The Holiday Tour of Homes, the Rosman (another town in Transylvania County) parade, concerts of all sorts at the Porter Center and more, make for a festive holiday season.
