Everyone was waiting in anticipation for the Asheville snow to start. It came, then stopped, then started again, then stopped, then finally the snowgates opened and we ended up with about 7 inches in downtown Asheville. At our properties in Weaverville, we received around 4 inches of snow. Getting stranded in downtown Asheville is really not that bad compared to being stuck in some out the outlying areas and towns nearby. During the Blizzard of ’93, my mom and dad were stuck on top of a mountain all the way down Reems Creek. Luckily, the storm did not do too much damage, but it will still take the area a few days to recoup and get back in the groove.
The snow started falling on Pritchard Park, which prompted this winter wonderland photo. The Weinhaus was serving Foothills Brewing Sexual Chocolate, and Highland Brewing Cold Mountain. The snowy evening was perfect.
It was like a snow oasis, until we spotted this hotel. Through the storm, it was a beacon of light for us. Ahhh, The Hotel Indigo!
After getting settled in at the Indigo, their concierge team loaded us up with food and craft brews. We were then ready to get snowed in some more.
We wandered out, stopped by the snowball fight, listened to some dubstep at Timo’s with friends, then plugged our own tunes into the system and had a snow party at the Vault, played pool and jukeboxed at the Bier Garden, and got to hang with one of Asheville’s Lady Jaguars. Stranded in the Snow ended up being a lot of fun!
