This is not the outcome I hoped for.
This is not how and where I left it, but I'm not too surprised it ended up this way. Looks like a bucket loader had to pick it up and move it off Route 30.

It was about noon today that I was finally driven out there by Fire to pick up my car. I saw the UPS guy still there, and another of the store dwellers rode out with Fire and me to get his car. The road was still not opened up yet, and was still worse west of us toward Fort Loudoun. Crazy stretch of road there, people said drifts were 14' high. Also heard that Whitetail used their groomer cats out on the roads to scoop up stranded customers/citizens. And that they decided to close today. Wow

Kim's brother and nephews have the good body shop in town and they have started drying it out and will replace the damaged parts.
What a mess.
So, who can give me a ride to the next ski??
Let's start looking at that next storm...
