First, that National Weather Service group started predicting that we were going to get 1-2 inches of snow. Then they said it might be 3 inches. Then they clarified that the snowfall was going to be spotty, so not sure who was and was not going to get any. But since we last saw any snow on October 18, we were so ready for some – any – to fall.
So when it started snowing Thursday afternoon, we got really, really excited. But it did not stick. Not at all. And we started thinking that this was a really, really bad joke.
Then the insult really kicked in. We heard the snow machines kick in at Cataloochee Ski Resort. They were making snow. Lots of it. So we went over on Friday to check it out. Guess what?
And at the 1pm opening time – Skiers and Snowboarders!
So we were all ready to go play in the snow when we discovered a horrifying fact – they do not have a dog sledding area. Or a Siberian Husky area. What? Or, sure, we got lots of cute dog comments and ear scratches and neck rubs – but no running in the snow. What a bummer.
Qannik – Sigh.
