4 things to do when it's 20 degrees & below outside

1. You can visit Bridal Veil, North Carolina. It's a beautiful waterfall (one of many near us!) but terribly COLD in the winter with a strong wind!! Of course it would have been a better picture if the boys would have stayed still instead of running out of the water spray. Bridal Veil Falls is unique because you can drive your car right underneath it! The water falls 120 feet from above, right over U.S. 64.

2. This was at Newfoundland Gap on top of the mountain going from Cherokee to Gaitlinburg. Newfoundland Gap is located on US 441 on the Tennessee-North Carolina border. It was so cold that the ice was on the trees (and the road in patches.) It was absolutely breathtaking and cold! Did I mention C-O-L-D???? Brrrr.... That's Dennis in the corner.
3. Since it was too cold to be outside, we went to Dixie Stampede. What a good time we had. We all enjoyed the pre-show and the Christmas show.
4. And finally, our boys decided to wash our windshield in 20 degree weather. What's a mom to say? This is a new phenomenon of them having to wash the windshield at every gas station every time we stop. Boys and cars....

  1. You are a brave and hearty soul. :) T-shirts on Saturday and air too cold to breathe on Monday -- crazy, isn't it?
    Merry Christmas to you and your family!
