Not A Blizzard

Our official weatherman predicted the heavy snow would not fall on us. Sadly, he was correct and this was decidedly not a blizzard.

Landon and Typhoon are unimpressed - not a blizzard
Landon and Typhoon are unimpressed

The winter storm that crossed over us promised to hammer the mountains just to our west. Parts of the Tennessee / North Carolina border above 4500 foot elevation saw two feet of snow. Sadly, just as predicted (at least by the not-trying-to-get-clicks professionals), we barely saw a dusting of snow. Landon and Typhoon might have more snow on their coats than on our greenway.
