  (snip) It is 29 degrees in Hickory, NC with at least 6 inches of snow on the ground!  Nope, I just read that it is 8 inches! 

Jack, if you're leaving on Tuesday, you should be fine running 77 (or 321) to Charlotte and then 77 to 26.  Once you get a little piece to the south-east, it should be fine.  Good luck.

Here in Dearing, GA we have at least 2 inches on the ground.  Low tonight is supposed to be 17 with the high tomorrow 48.  We're gonna wait until it warns up a little bit tomorrow before leaving.

for all you nuts coming south I am sure you will think i am more nuts, but after being in Florida for this past 10 years I miss the snow. I don't miss the cold and the shoveling and nasty roads but in the scheme of life the snow is just so beautiful.

Mark, look for a Flagstaff travel trailer being pulled by a Chevy truck, white.  I am sure there will still be snow on the roof when we get there Tuesday! Grin

Mark,

If I can get out of the driveway before Bussin is over I will bring you a shovel full!

It sounds like what we used to say in Colorado when we lived there. Someone would call and say they were sliding down the icy hill. We told them to not worry there is a STOP SIGN at the bottom.

For the two of us that were going to leave Monday, our departure is probably Wednesday or Thursday. So no Bussin' 2011 for us.
Jack, we were looking forward to the rally Sad. But, alas the snow has put a kaboosh on that plan.

Have a great time ringing in the new year.

Bill,
    Sorry you will not be able to join us, but if you get to Florida after the rally, stop by our place for a visit.  Jack

Although this may be true Sean, what about those of us that are here for the pre rally festivities? LOL Too cold even for your hot tub and too too windy!


Actually, Ace, we use the tub right down into the 30s.  Heck, if we had any Scandinavian blood, we'd use it below that, too.  Once you're in the hot water you don't feel the cold, and even a little light snow or rain is no deterrent:

That said, yesterday it was just too windy for it.  I did take the time to fill it, and it was a mighty struggle to get my ultra-light collapsible hoses strung over to the spigot -- the wind tried to send them a different way.  Probably heat it up tonight, now that its much calmer.

Today, meanwhile, I need to finish working on my seminar slides...
