I'm in Florida right now and it's pretty windy here too. We are heading up in a few days. I hope the winds die down by then. I know it will be cold and it's that much worse when the wind is blowing.
Hey Disney: Glad you made it up from the sunshine state. Better honker down with this weather front. We were under tornado warnings earlier, but it has passed.
Hope your stay is pleasant and the weather cooperates.
yep, we are in Gatlinburg now. Very windy last night and right now.
Power was out an hour or so last night and again this morning.
Merry Christmas !
Glad you made it!! How did you end up going? Did you take the detour or I75?
I don't mean to hijack your thread, but since some of you are from Florida, how long does it take you to get to Gatlinburg? My brother will be stationed in Pensacola for 6 months & we were hoping he could join us in Gatlinburg for Easter if the drive isn't too long.
Melanie it would be about a 9 hour drive from Pensacola.
We experienced those high winds the other night. Neither me nor my husband has ever heard anything like it before. We're staying in Cottage Gardens and it was horrible.
Fortutunately, I stopped into Mountain Laurel's office on Thursday and they were giving out slips of paper with the phone number to call in case of a power outage due to the high winds since the office would be closed. Unfortunately we had to use the number when the power went out for about three hours up here. The power company was really great about calling to see if the power was restored and when it wasn't, they made a note and called us back when it was back on. Unfortunately that was around three in the morning and we were asleep! Now we're just hoping for a little snow before we leave on Saturday!
