  1. Currently on top of bear wallow mt. Wind is awesome! .
  2. Nice. Always good to read words like, big dog, chops, rock solid among others in the morning. .
  3. 29.8 for the low. It’s so quiet outside with no wind. .
  4. Only down to 37.9 last night. Hoping tonight brings the first below freezing temps.
  5. Our power was out for 36+ hours due to Zeta. Still thousands without power in my Rutherford county. Not fun. .
  6. Power has been out since 8:30 yesterday. Lots of damage across the county here. Not sure on rain amounts. Most fell before the wind came in. Highest gust was 42.1 at my house . .
  7. 41.2 is the highest gust so far. Took a drive and lots of trees and limbs down. Power went out about 30 mins ago. Crazy .
  8. What kind of wind are you getting?
  9. So right! LA can not get a break this season. .
