Speaking of weather, we have been anxiously awaiting decent weather so ACA can get our paving and grading done before the regional asphalt plant closes down for the winter. Had the weather cooperated, that could have been right now, but clearly all that has been delayed. When there is official word on the impending work, I'll post here, and you will also see signs posted at the entrance to the same effect.
A belated thanks as always to Irene and Judy for their festive handiwork at the ACA entrance....all done on their time and nickel, so feel free to speak to them and offer to defray their costs. Every time I pull in I feel like I am coming home... :-)
While the weather was nice last week, I made two short forays on the Blue Ridge Parkway from Balsam north past Highway 215 to 276. Posting a few pics for your viewing pleasure (click to enlarge). Interesting to note the number of coves at lower elevations with bright colors when higher areas had not yet turned. We truly live in an incredible area with much to be thankful for!
