High 32, Low 26.
Looks to be one of those famous foggy, rainy days on Leconte, where you can't help but pick up Icicle swords, fight mythical creatures, and speculate how amazing the sunset is just beyond that darned fog. It continually switches between snow/ice/and rain every 30 minutes or so. There is a new .5" of snow on the ground. It's Icy and Slushy.
Alexander's Leconte Laundry Guide:
1. Hike about 10 Gallons of Water from the spring to the kitchen
2. Heat up this water on the stove.
3. Turn on NPR and Drink some Red Panax Ginseng Extractum from the Whole Earth Grocery Store in Gatlinburg, while waiting.
4. Empty hot water into several different Vessel's used for Laundry purposes only.
5. Fill the first Vessel with a little detergent.
6. Wash in Soap, Rinse with Hot water. Stick into duffel bag.
7. Hang up clothes in personal cabin on a clothes line, preferably at least 2Ft. from heater as to not make any new unneeded arm holes.
8. Sit back and enjoy that humidity that you've been missing.
And my first Photoshop modified picture I've done in a long time...

Great sunset pic Alex! Definitely sounds like doing the laundry is a chore in itself. Kill off a couple of those mythical creatures for me. We're expecting 3 - 6" of snow here in the part of the Bluegrass State that I'm in starting tomorrow. Hope you have a great day and stay safe.

Looking for snow Thursday in Ohio. A lot of ours melted yesterday in our 37 degree warm up! Back to the single digits on Friday BRR!! Be safe up there. Thanks
