It was a treat waking up to a beautiful sunrise this morning. Alabama was fun but I got to experience the song of the tornado siren. We were there for the storms that passed through my parents "neck of the woods". I told my mother it had been so long since I had experienced one that she was going to have to let us know when it was time to take shelter. We don't hear to many sirens on the mountain. And yes, tornadoes can make their way through the mountains. Luckily, we have not had to experience one on Mt. LeConte.
The temperatures are a little chilly up top. The high yesterday was 49º with a low of 29º. You want to make sure you bring plenty of layers of you are heading up for a night. You will enjoy the warm the sunshine during the day and the cold breezes at night.
