Four Seasons in the Smokies

  • Posted on

You may already know that we live in Chicago.  You almost definitely know that Chicago gets a lot of snow.  But if you're from the South, maybe you don't know what "a lot of snow" means.  Maybe you've never even seen snow?  Well, let me tell you...  I was born in May (of an unspoken year :), and we were still thawing after a winter with the highest snowfall ever recorded in Chicago (going back to at least 1920).  That year, we had 89.7 inches!  People, that is 7 1/2 feet of snow!  Even Michael Jordan would be over his head in the snow. (There I go, dating myself again!)   Fortunately, the annual average in Chicago is "only" 37 inches.  But that is still over 3 feet of snow...  That's a lot of shoveling and snow blowing to make sure our kids can get to the bus and our dogs can go out.

What does that have to do with Vacation Adventures by Vicki considering all the cabins are in TN?!?  Well, one of the most often asked questions I get is about the weather.  We all have our favorite temperatures.  Some of us want to escape the deep cold and snow in the winter while some of us would just love to see snowfall for the first time.  Some of us love 85 degrees and the sun beating on us (that's me!) while others start sweating if it gets over 65.  So I hope this is little chart helps you decide what season will best suite you for your trip to the Smokies.

As always, I'm here if you have any questions.  Please do not hesitate to reach out.

In the meantime, it's summer still in Chicago, and I'm clinging onto every ray of sunshine I get can!
