Fans of The Thundering Herd Facebook Page (really, click that link and then click the “Like” button and you, too, can get breaking Herd News) already know that the humans abused the poor Herd Sunday night by stopping for pizza and beer – and leaving The Herd in the Jeep to amuse themselves. To add insult to injury, the hu-dad sipped beer, ate pizza, and actually took pictures of The Herd from the restaurant.
Apparently, this does not really mean our feline friends. CAT is the abbreviation for Cataloochee Ski and someone just applied their sticker to this sign. If you enlarge the picture, you can see that.
Our poor dirt roads really take a beating in the winter, particularly this road which takes all of the traffic to Cataloochee Ski. We love our neighbors at the ski resort. They take such great care to remove the snow in the winter so we can get up and down the mountain, but also because they work to restore the road in the spring. Spring is when maintenance is done on our roads to take out the “washboards” and make them smooth again for the summer.
