When you made this post, Smarticle and I were already snug as bugs in our hammocks.

The weather held off nicely, and we were all cooked and cleaned long before it came through. Even as the line was approaching, the wind was erratic and shifting constantly, but the worst of it stayed up in the tree tops well above us.
Smarticle and I were the first ones to go to bed, and I mostly slept through it all. But nothing lulls me to sleep better than a good storm. In the end, I doubt we got but between ¼" and ½". But it was a great test of our gear, and everyone survived fine. When I got up in the morning there was a thin layer of ice on everything left exposed (tarps), and we had intemittent light sleet minimal flurries.
Lee, sorry you had to leave, but we understand. We had more good grub on Saturday night. Lamb stew and dumplings, Conecuh and deer sausage, corn and fresh veggies. It was all good.
Here is a pic of the gang. I will post more later.
