in like a lion...

The snow itself is lonely or, if you prefer, self-sufficient. There is no other time when the whole world seems composed of one thing and one thing only.
--Joseph Wood Krutch (1893-1970) American Naturalist and Writer

This was the view earlier this week of highway 261 leading into Mitchell County, NC at Carver's Gap on Roan Mountain. NC got much more snow than we did on the TN side of the mountains this past weekend -- up to 11 inches in places. According to the Watauga Democrat, it was one of the biggest one day snowfalls in the high country since 1998. Besides shutting everything down, the snow also caused numerous power outages. But it sure was purdy.
