From the moment we got to our condo,
I began asking for snow. I didn't need much,
but I wanted snow. And for the first
two days, it was cold. And damp.
But no snow.
This was the road as we drove into Cades Cove,
Saturday. We both enjoy this area.
We saw lots and lots of deer. Lots of turkey.
No bears. No snow.
I love these old homes.
What I don't like is the low ceiling.
Makes for a tight spot.

Sunday, we drove into the park and up
towards Clingman's Dome. No,
we did not climb it. I do not hike.
I do not enjoy sweating. Or puffing.
Posed snapshots.
Do you have shots like these?
Then, came Monday.
We walked out onto the porch,
and it was colder, and wetter.
On our way back from downtown,
it began to drizzle. Yuck. We decided to explore some of the roads
in the Gatlinburg area, and guess what?
It began to snow.
and I had to have my picture in it!
John loves watching Robert Alewine
do his pottery thing. This trip
we went to his store and met him.
And bought a coffee mug.
I think I'll give Hood
some pottery lessons.
When we got ready to leave his store,
this is what greeted us!!
And it continued to snow,
and snow, and snow!!!
and John wondered
if we should go home.
Horrors!
I was getting my snow!
And okay, ice,
which made me nervous.
I like my cute little car
with no dents in the bumpers!

We left this morning around 10 am
and it was still snowing.
In fact, it snowed all the way
to the interstate and beyond.
Our trip was awesome.
Very relaxing, very restful.
And I got my snow.

Sure wish it had followed me home.




PS~There's a video that follows taken as we drove from Gatlinburg to Pigeon Forge. Or maybe it was the other way around~

Its all so very beautiful. I love all of your pictures. Daniel and I are going to Gatlinburg sometime in the next month or two. We haven't decided when yet. We love it there and we definately need a getaway just the two of us.
