If you need a little winter getaway to a cozy Asheville Bed and Breakfast, I have the tea kettle on, the fireplaces roaring (well, it is still winter) and the goodies are warm here At Cumberland Falls Bed and Breakfast Inn.
To say it has been frigid in Asheville, North Carolina in January 2010 would be the highest form of understatement. Gary and I have lived here for more than 10 years and one of the best things about Asheville's climate is that all four seasons are well represented but not in a brutal way.
Summer is, despite what they say, occasionally toasty...Ok, very toasty but not every single day of summer. Winter, is represented customarily in the most delicate of manners. Enough to say you got some, provide justification for breaking out lovely sweaters and enjoying a cup of hot chocolate but not sufficient to interfere with activities of daily living. Nor are the temperatures, as a rule, so miserable as to keep home all but the stalwart.
Before 2010 even peeked through the time curtain all that changed here in Asheville.
On December 18, 2009 we had nearly record breaking snow and cars all over town were doing a wonderful impression of the ride "bumper cars." More notably both before that and most certainly after that date the temps have gone places that one might expect in Chicago. Tormenting they were!
However, for the last several day here Asheville not only have the
"weather fairies" been kind they have made this girls day. The sun is shining bright in a cloudless sky & I have "made hay while the sun shines" again visiting the garden here At Cumberland Falls Bed and Breakfast Inn cutting back some of the plant life it was simply to cold to content with earlier. For the time being, it is blissful and I intend to take full advantage.
