Weather news from the mountains

Still too depressing around here for photos of the wrecked foliage after the freeze. For some good photos of the weekend snow around Asheville area, where it was pretty heavy, photo gallery from the Citizen-Times.

The C-T also reports today that the Western NC apple crop has been pretty much wiped out, maybe as bad as the 1955 freeze.

And, of course, the report about Monday morning's plane crash at Murphy-Andrews Airport, which severely injured the pilot, a surgeon at the local hospital, and killed two. Reports in the comments on the story suggest another doctor was one of the victims (although the comments I read earlier seem to be gone from the site). Sad day in Cherokee County.

(Update: Cherokee Scout has the full story.)
