3. W. Jefferson is a nice little town. Once spent a couple nights in a little place above a music

shop. I thought it was cool that you could get a drink, have an ice cream, buy an antique, watch a movie and visit a cheese factory all within a couple of blocks.

6. We're glad we chose Hendersonville instead of W Jefferson, though

More proximity to hiking areas...and Asheville!

7. Hi, blm...

Here's your forecast...

https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=36.2205&lon=-81.6872

You can get an automatically updating forecast from the pinned post at the top of the group page here:

https://www.democraticunderground.com/10697503

All you have to do is click your location or the location you want a forecast for, directly on the map and it will take you there. Once there you can fine tune your forecast by entering your zip code or town name in the search bar.

I hope you find this helpful.

9. Thx.

Itís the weird, confusing road conditions and constant parking lot dramas in Boone that Iím trying to wrap my brain around, as well. The school isnít the greatest when it comes to communicating these issues.

11. You're on top of things!

Iím juggling conditions in 3 areas for my crew - Chapel Hill/Raleigh, Boone, and Hendersonville.

Weíre all in different spots for school and work, and the road conditions are keeping everyone hunkered in place instead of driving home to Hendo.

12. Apparently, not on top of things enough to know what Hendo means...



Good luck with your endeavors.
