    Looking for snow

    Alrighty ya'll.......my SWMBO'd has decided that 'we' need to go up into the mountians and 'see' some snow. Now, me living down in costal S.E. Georgia means snow is something I see on the news.
    So I pose this querry to our members in the S. and N. Carolina, and eastern Tenn. areas......where is there some of this 'snow' sticking around? A quick use of my google-fu showed me rather 'disappointing' results WRT weather up in the north Ga. mountians this week. Not too good for a wife looking for an overnight trip into the 'white wonderland of winter'. Being from Ill. I'd thought she'd had enough of it during her childhood. Me being a south La. coonie stationed in south Georgia dosn't help with this much.

    Help ?!?

    Here in eastern NC we still have some hanging around but with 60s forecast for this weekend it will all be gone shortly.

    Southwestern Virginia. I'm sure Pigeon Forge, TN may have some still.

    Get on I-75, head north, drive for about 12 hours, you'll see plenty of that white crap! We have enough in southern OH that you can bring a truck and take a bunch back home with you--all for FREE!!!

    When I drove through the Great Smokey Mountain national park in July, there was snow at the higher elevations, so I am pretty sure you can see some now anywhere in the area.

    I would image that Asheville and on west would be a good bet. It's going to warm up Fri and Sat with some rain coming in. That might not be good for the trip. Make some phone calls to hotels and see what they say. Here is the Blue Ridge Parkway weather hotline. If it's closed due to weather, then there is still snow there.

    I just returned from a 30-day stay in Italy. We had some on the ground but it was solid white just a few clicks up the map. Can’t say that I actually care for the stuff but that’s likely because I’ve lived in the desert most of my life. I’ll catch it on the TV or postcards.
