Difference of a Day

Dawn in the mountains. The distant mountain peaks rise above the valley fog below. Sunday appears to be as blue and clear as Saturday was.

But as we walked through our field past our favorite tree, something looked different.

Remember that Cataloochee Ski was busy making snow Saturday morning?

The skiers and snowboarders were enjoying all of that snow.

Unfortunately, our field was snowless. Sorry, Cheoah, but the Cheoah Snow Slide seems to be missing something important.

    Cheoah, is that part of the snow calling ritual? We have been chanting in your direction, “Let it snow! Let it snow!”

  4. Life With Dogs on November 29, 2010 at 11:41 pm

    Am I the only one who feels like it’s only been 3 months since we saw it melt off?

    Thank you Cheoah that was so cute!! We needed the laugh! 🙂

  6. Holly & Khady on November 29, 2010 at 11:10 pm

    I think Cheoah just likes to roll.


  7. Lorenza on November 29, 2010 at 11:06 pm

    Be patient! You will get the snow soon!
    Kisses and hugs

    You need to borrow their snow machine. 🙂

    I just love it when the fog fills the valleys. Seems as if you are looking at huge lakes. Great photographs.

    Ha Roo!!! Those are some beautiful pictures you have there….you better keep all the snow your way (man made or the real stuff)…you know I’m a dainty great dane and just don’t like the cold white stuff.

  13. Huffle Mawson on November 29, 2010 at 4:46 pm

    Wow, what a magnificent view!

  14. Stella on November 29, 2010 at 4:25 pm

    We are supposed to get 6 or more inches of new snow today, so c’mon over, Cheoah, and you can teach me your snowslide and we can do it all day!

  17. Mya Boo Boo Painter on November 29, 2010 at 3:55 pm

    Cheoah… you’re going to get grass burn!

  19. rottrover on November 29, 2010 at 1:04 pm

    WOW! That first photo is stunning!

  20. Kristine on November 29, 2010 at 12:33 pm

    Glad to hear I’m not the only one wishing for snow. We have yet to have any of real substance and for some reason I am disappointed.

    Love the pictures!

  21. Elizabeth & Luna on November 29, 2010 at 11:03 am

    Wow, beautiful mountains!!!

  22. HUSKYS RULE on November 29, 2010 at 10:48 am

    R does the same snow slide! Maybe you could borrow some snow from the ski area!

    Pretty photo of the mist.

  25. Stumpy and Cyndi on November 29, 2010 at 9:14 am

    Hopefully, you won’t have to wait too long for snow. We’ve seen flakes twice in dirtville, this week!

    Love the mountain views!

  26. Houndstooth on November 29, 2010 at 8:49 am

    Bah! It’s never too early to start perfecting your form! Don’t let them rain on your parade or cramp your style, Cheoah!

  27. Pamela on November 29, 2010 at 7:30 am

    I guess Cheoah has invited the dirt slide. Necessity is the mother of invention.

  28. Clive on November 29, 2010 at 6:43 am

    We could send you over some snow if you would like!! Not used to having so much snow here in Ireland – schools closed today, Murray delighted and we have lots of time to spend visiting our friends blogs – which is great!

    Hope your snow comes soon!

    take care
    Cilve and Murray

  29. Maxx on November 29, 2010 at 4:44 am

    Wow that’s some splendid landscape shots!
    Hope you get your snow!
    It’s been raining the whole day today here in Singapore…
