White Christmas, 2010

They changed the forecast a dozen times this week.  We would either get an inch or so of snow, some snow/rain mix, or a "significant accumulation" of snow.  It appears that the latter was the correct prediction.  Here are a few shots from around Ash Grove's office, taken about 3:30pm on Dec 25.

Early Snow



Here in the southern part of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western NC, we don't usually receive our first snowfall until after the new year, but this is the 2nd year in a row that we had snow before Christmas.  Here is one of our cabins and a couple of campsites in the snowfall of 12 Dec, 2010.

Note that the teepee has a stovepipe coming out of it (but their fire went out during the night).
