High 32, Low 11. Happy to be Back Home. A Nice Hike up Alum Cave yesterday, But very Icy, and will be even more so today.
Most Roads closed, More Snow Coming in. Rainbow falls was knee deep coming up yesterday. -9 Temps.
Hi, Alex is on days off, so the relief has called the temps down to the reservation office. The high yesterday was -5 and the low -9. It was -8 at about 8:30 this morning. He had 5 inches of fresh snow yesterday for a total of 21 inches. Hwy 441, Newfound Gap Road is closed due to snow and ice. Cherokee Orchard Road is open. You can call 865-436-1200 to check on road closures in the Park.

Starting to snow. got about 5 inches now.
we are in a winter weather advisory until tuesday morning.
The park service has been turning people around,
and just about every road you can imagine is closed.
If I can get off the mountain this morning, i'm going down for a few days.
See you soon, and stay warm.
sink unfrozen :).
8 low, 15 high. Spectacular Sunset.
More Snow coming in this weekend.
Finally got the sink unfrozen.
A Reminder: The lodge is closed, don't expect me being around or any buildings being warm or unlocked.
This morning when waking up and looking at my personal thermometer it was blank with a "-" sign, i took it as a "nuh uh, it's way too cold for this.'' It's -2 with a near 2 feet of snow on the ground. Still snowing. Apparently the blog made it on the knoxville news last night, crazy, eh? Today i'll be hiking down alum and back up again, hiking with my friend back to her car. I'm sure I'll get some pretty cool pictures for tomorrow. Stay warm friends.
An inversion happened briefly.
