Minutes of the September 22, 2010 Meeting
Smoky Mountain AMS Chapter


The September meeting was held on a different day from usual: Wednesday, September 22nd. A few members met first for dinner at Barley's Tap House in the Old City of Knoxville. Afterwards, around twenty members met on the University of Tennessee Ag campus to hear our guest speaker, Doug McFalls, speak about his experiences and observations at the Mt. LeConte lodge (elevation: 6593 feet MSL) this past winter. Doug was the caretaker of the lodge, as well as a great photographer, and he showed everyone some stunning photos from this past winter season. This past winter was a colder and snowier season than normal, so Doug experienced many significant snowfall events. He also provided everyone with some interesting weather statistics concerning the amounts of snowfall per event and month, as well as the monthly temperature extremes.
