Watauga Wind

What's the coldest you have ever been? When did the wind sting like needles against your face? When did the snow blow with a wild and wicked howl?  Please discuss.

While you are thinking about these questions consider the weather forecast for Watauga County this week in the N.C. mountains.  The high today in Boone is 17 degrees. That's a whole lot colder than Green Bay, Wisconsin today! It's going to be cold in Boone all week, and the wind is blowing with a vengeance.

I thought this would be a good time to debut a new music/photo essay titled Watauga Wind. The song is from my new Simple Beauty album, and the photographs come courtesy of Eric Heistand of Boone.

Please let us know what you think of this "chilling" mini movie. Thanks!
