Here, west of Boston, we are getting a LOT of wind, but with rain, not frozen precipitation of any sort. It is warmer here than some parts of GA!

t's 30 degrees with gusting winds and off and on rain. It tried to snow earlier but it cuoldn't cover the ground. It's not much of a winter so far.

GA 348 is currently closed due to ice.NOW you tell me. I drove up there today with my wife, daughter and son-in-law and three dogs to hike to Whitley Gap.

Plan B was Slaughter Gap Trail.

So what's with all the trees down along 129 about a mile west (uphill) of Boggs Creek? I know Boggs got hit by a tornado this spring and is still closed but these downed trees are more recent and much further uphill from that. Looks like another tornado blew through.

Nice sprinkling of snow along 180 and in places along Slaughter Creek. Real pretty hike.

I discovered the closing when I planned a trip to Raven Cliffs Falls with my kids. Went to Smithgall Woods instead and hiked back to the old mine. I doubt they'll contact me when the road is open. I had to turn down two shuttles because of the road closings. Ya just never know.

Ray, Yes, all that damage is from the earlier tornado..it's just visible now. Boggs is still closed, but the Chattahoochee River Rd. is open and goes through some amazing tornado debris too.

OK, 348 is open again.
