NEWFOUND GAP (AP) — Snow and freezing temperatures didn’t stop some people from visiting the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Dean Siornicke of Spring Hill, Fla., told the Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/TRMTKH) the snow was up to his knees but he still had a blast.
He and a friend found a shelter, built a fire and hung a tarp over the door.
But Jenny and Terry Bourg were not as prepared for the storm when they came from Houma, La., to rent a cabin for their 25th wedding anniversary.
As they struggled to make their way through the snow on Monday, Terry Bourg told the paper they had never seen anything like it in their lives.
Snow and high winds were expected to continue through Wednesday morning.
