Winter is pretty much gone here in the Carolinas. NOAA says that Banner Elk will get some snow over the next couple of days, but I think it could very well be a last hurrah for the mountains. Of course late March has seen some kickass snowfalls in the NC/TN/VA high country. But more than likely we've seen the last of the big snows for this winter. In honor of the fading cold and the lengthening days and warmer winds, here are a few snow photos from this year.
