The snow started coming down on Thursday night and did not stop until mid-day Friday. D estimated it was about six to eight inches. That's a lot for us. Luckily D's car is four-wheel drive so we didn't have any problems getting to the cabin.
Nonetheless, we decided to stay in on Friday. I was coming down with a bit of a cold, so it was nice to spend the day reading, playing in the snow, and downing tons of hot tea. It was so great to have the dogs and let them play in the snow. They had the best time.
Our cabin was great! They had everything we needed for cooking and living (although I couldn't find the hair dryer they were supposed to have). Lucky for us, we even found a sled!
On Saturday, the sun was out and everything was gorgeous. We spent the day visiting Beech Mountain (and the brewing company there), gorging ourselves on Mexican food, taking naps, exploring the adorable tiny town of Blowing Rock, and finishing with an amazing dinner at Gamekeeper.
