It’s clear and cold on top of Mt LeConte this morning! The temperature is six degrees. No precipitation last night. There are no clouds in the sky, so it should be bright and sunny today. There are four inches of snow on the ground.
The road to Newfound Gap is still closed. The Cherokee Orchard road is open.
My wife came up and made banana pudding for me! That was the highlight of the day. We didn’t see any other tracks, so I believe that we had the whole mountain all to ourselves. That doesn’t happen very often up here!
We spent a lot of time clearing the snow off solar panels, steps and decks. And feasting on banana pudding!
If you should decide to get out and enjoy the snow today and sunshine, be sure to dress warmly—mittens are warmer than gloves!
