I wonder what the crowd will be like Friday and Saturday/Sunday?  If they do get 4-6" will they just shut the park down or keep it open?  Might be interesting to visit with 4-6" of snow.

Slippery, but oh so beautiful! Years ago, the first time I visited the park during the winter season, there was snow on the ground.

Stormdar Weather is a facebook page that serves the weather in the Ozark area.  It's run by a couple of guys who are better at predicting the weather than the local news services.  They predictions are based on looking at several different informational and radar systems.  They are highly thought of around here and usually correct.  Look it up on Facebook - Stormdar Weather or more precisely for Branson - Stormdar Weather Southwestern.

Stormdar now posting increased confidence that Branson could get a possible 4-5".

Well, I'm the killjoy here! The tree was working fine during the 5K.  I'll admit, there are better trees around, but I still kind of like the current one.  As far as brighter lights on the square, I hope not! (told you I was the killjoy). I'm not over the top crazy about midtown.  I walk through it each visit, I like it, admire it, and then feel a sense of relief after I exit it.  It's so "in your face" bright and big that I find it overwhelming. I hope they keep the somewhat softer lights on the square.  I wish they would just add more greenery and give it an old time look and feel - kind of like midtown used to be.

It was a ghost town this morning for Black Friday at 8 a.m.  We had a great time, purchased jams and salsas 25% off, and left about 10:30.  It rained a little bit, and began pouring about 11.  Glad we left when we did! Evidently, not all employees were aware of the Black Friday sale.  We walked into the Culinary School and was quickly told we had to leave as they weren't open and was asked if they were letting people into the park early.  We told the poor lady about the sale and the opening at 8:00.  She had no idea, and was embarrassed about telling us to leave, so she offered to turn on the fireplace and let us come in to warm up.  We were heading out, so we didn't.  ;D

Yeah, I saw the regular show this summer. Well, a part of it - for most of the evening, we sat outside on the deck; not because we didn't like the show (it was just ok), but because it was a nice evening and enjoyable sitting outside.  We were the only two out there.  I talked it over with my two "thirties" who both have very busy careers, and they both said they'd be just as happy in pj's watching movies at our house with good munchies, so...not sure what we will do yet. I'm not even sure if there's a regular show that night.  I read earlier about dancing, appetizers, and a sparkling grape juice toast at midnight.

Has anyone been on the Belle for New Years Eve?  Need to decide quickly if it's worth it before they're sold out.  Entertaining two thirty-somethings from the east and west coast, and would like to get them on the lake.  This is only the second year it's been offered, but hoping it will be fun.

I saw a photo somewhere, and it didn't look like real coffins, but more like a black box.  Were they real?

I have no emotional connection with AP....I'd love them to repurpose that area and create a new water ride.

Id love for that whole area to be rethemed as a real lumber camp

...with Jim Owen's Float Trip.

YES!
