The effects of Harvey pushing inland continue to linger, even here on the mountain. Conditions remain cloudy, breezy, and rainy as moisture associated with the system keeps sweeping through. We received 0.83" of rainfall yesterday, and temperatures have cooled. Our high on Friday was only 55 degrees, and our low dropped to 43. We've been sitting in the mid 40's all morning, and that can quickly turn anyone towards hypothermia in this wind and rain without the proper layering. Please continue to do all that is necessary to get yourself here safely and comfortably until the skies finally clear.
Happy first official week of college football! Folks are sure to be paying attention to their favorite school's games. It's not unusual to observe crew or guests huddled around radios catching scores or play-by-plays every fall Saturday on Mt. LeConte. We see people with cheering roots from all over, so there are bound to be mixed loyalties at every dining table these next few months.
Everyone have a great start to the holiday weekend.
Go Blue, beat the Gators!
