We had a brief reprieve during storms yesterday morning. The rain and wind came in pretty hard first thing in the morning. We were treated to hail storms on and off through out the day. The hail we got on the mountain was nothing in comparison to what the residents in Gatlinburg received. I saw pictures all over facebook of baseball size hail. The high yesterday reached 60 degrees. Today is looking promising. The sun has been in out of the clouds and the day has potential. Chris and I be will hiking off the mountain this evening. Time for a little rest and relaxation, and checking on our home in Gatlinburg to make sure there is no hail damage.
