Snowy Boone -Oct 2006
We arrived in Boone late in the afternoon on Monday. After two full days of 'Leaf Looking' and winding, mountain roads, we were a bit frazzled and needing some rest.
We chose badly on the motel-for purly sentimental reasons. We had stayed at this particular place in our last trip to Boone so were drawn to it again. Sadly, it had become very rundown since we were there several years ago. Nevertheless, we kept the room; the beds were comfortable and clean and the shower was hot- the two main things for us! (PLUS-the price was $49.00-a big + for my husband! :) )
Snow had been predicted and , indeed, tiny white flakes were floating around when we ventured out for dinner. They looked like some sort of little white fly, flitting around!
This snowfall was something new for this Florida girl! We had seen snow on the ground in north California 20+ years ago, but I don't remember ever actually seeing it snow! ( I'm sure in my early childhood in Alabama I had seen it- but that's lost to me now!) Surfice to say-it was an interesting experience for us both-having the snow! It seemed to have been put in the plan just for our pleasure-this early snowfall!
