Smokies 3 Wow, what a night

The forcasters calling for strong winds were not wrong - these winds are STRONG! It was supposed to get below freezing, too, so we disconected the water. The winds started rocking and rolling yesterday afternoon and got stronger as the night wore on. A large tree branch fell and landed on the roof but, at the time, we did not know what it was because it was too windy to go onto the roof to see what was up. This morning the branch was taken down and Jim climbed the ladder and saw no damage but did not go onto the roof to check closer because the winds are still quite strong. The water is hooked back up so we will go check out the area some more. The wind advisory is still on until 8:00pm (it is blowing very hard now, too) and tomorrow is supposed to be only 30 mph winds so we will head to Georgia then.

Does the Montana have an anchor you can drop out the window to keep from blowing away? We had heavy rains and gusty winds here yesterday with some lingering wind today, but nothing like what you had and no snow. On our trip last year, we passed about five miles from Maggie Valley as we neared the southern end of the Blue Ridge Parkway -- beautiful country. It's about time for your weather to improve. Maybe there will still be azaleas in bloom in Georgia. If you see any robins there, send them north. Love, J&J
