Good morning from the mountain. I apologize for not posting yesterday, I am having some technical difficulties with my personal computer and I had to get the lodge computer powered up. Unfortunately, I am working on a way to download a photo. I used my phone on my other computer and it is not linked to this computer. So, I will take the day to figure out the issues. I have already sent my camera and card reader off the mountain, so, I have no backup like I normally would.
I am sure you are wondering what the weather is doing. Right now, it is 40 degrees and raining. We have received 1.21" of rain over the last 24 hours. The high was 41 with a low of 31. We can not tell what the weather is going to do. This has been the strangest forecast. We notice it keeps changing. We will keep you posted on any updates that might affect your hike up. For now, it is just rain.
We have some exciting media coverage in the works. Channel 6, WATE, out of Knoxville is on their way up the mountain to broadcast a live media coverage from the mountain. As far as I know, this has never been done before. I believe they are starting with the 4 o'clock news. It should be interesting to see if this is going to work. If you are in the Knoxville viewing area, tune in and you can see the weather for yourself.
