It's another quiet and gray day on the mountain. We're still enduring the lingering effects of Hurricane Irma as it breaks apart over the region. The winds have calmed down significantly, but we're still cloaked in cloud cover with a light mist. We tallied 0.18" of rain yesterday, the third straight day collecting liquid precipitation. Temperatures didn't waver much, as our high came in at 46 degrees and our low was close by at 42. The mid 40's are where we reside currently.
Once Irma finally dissipates, we should see a break in the weather and even a slight rise in day time temperatures. Autumn continues to march toward us faster and faster it seems like, as conditions cool and vegetation withers. We are now at less than 10 weeks remaining in the 2017 lodge season, and just a few weeks away from beginning reservations for 2018. Be sure and mark your calendars for Monday, October 2nd, as that is when our team will start accepting calls and sifting through the lottery to book folks for next year. We look forward to hearing back from those of you who have been coming for ages and those who are still pondering that first visit to Tennessee's famous mountain.
Have a great day.
