This is the big one. After months with nothing more than thin layers of white dust, the first real snow of the winter is here.
There was a little prelude last week with two half inch snows. Half an inch barely registers as a real snow up here on the mountain top.
Yesterday a howling wind delivered about four inches, while forty five minutes east, Asheville got a foot or more. I was a bit disappointed. Is that all I get?
The north west flow started that night. It has delivered my missing snow all day long.
I may have a foot of snow by the time it is over.
Miss Collar is the only one willing to do her business outside. There are even a few flying leap and slides involved. Quickly. Then it is over.
Tomorrow I will shovel real snow.
