Dammmmmm Skippy!! [emoji106] [emoji106]I pert near recon your right. Now go fetch the hose-pipe and wash the car. After your done with eating your grits, of course...
I have lived all over and I just love the sound of a southern bell when she is whispering in my ear.
It's not just about how far North, but how high up. I am setting at 2300' above sea level. That's high up compared to most of the Eastern US.
Hmm...don't know about that. I was in Bar Harbor, Maine when it was so humid with mist, the tree's literally dripped water like rain. Clothing was soaken wet 10 minutes after walking outside.
They can't handle fire ants, skeeters, gnats, and red bugs!! I had some yankee neighbor's for 11 years next door up until last year when he was able to retire, and they sold out and moved back to meechigan. Everytime they got out in the yard to do yardwork, they each used an entire spray can of bug repellent!!
In the west, if your standing on a 2300' hill, Ya that's a hill on the left coast. you can still see the girls laying on the beach.
When I lived in the South I learned 2 things.
1. They are not equipped for much snow due to their climate, which relates to no.2,
2. schools close along with some businesses when there is an immanent threat of snow or freezing rain. I know I do not want to have my kids on a bus coming down a mountain and then they hit a patch of black ice. Brakes won't help.
I just thought the video was funny and wanted to share.
"We didn't even break out the boots in MI. for anything less than a foot of snow. Here in TN. the world stands still!!!!"
Well.. it doesn't stand still everywhere in Tennessee!
We only received an inch of snow here at the house... seems we were in the gap as the low pressure system went through...
So, the Cherohala Skyway only received a foot. Good thing about where I live.. I can leave the house and be higher than Denver in a few minutes!
The snow forecast is only given by the local people on the Skyway.. and it's common for it to have over 2 feet in the winter! No weather stations in the higher mountains.. but maybe Mt. LeConte in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It's a different world here, one that I wouldn't trade for anywhere else!
A friends ride Saturday on the Cherohala Skyway, TN/NC state line...
