I know days like that aren't good for the park, but I have to say they can be my favorite. It's like you have the park to yourself. You can meander around the streets instead of be in a crush of people. It's like SDC is your real small-town home. Those days are magic for me.

The first year they started Black Friday was like that!  It was cold, but sunny, and we felt we had the park to ourselves.  None of the rides and very few concessions were open, but it was great just walking around with very few people.  I loved it!

It was cold, drizzly, windy yesterday in Branson. We could have gone to the city last night but just didn't want to be outside. When we got back to Homestay the steps leading up to the second floor were slick with a slight ice glaze.

Good thing too. The weather for the next two weekends look formidable. Even likely going to bring my duck whackage to an iced up halt. 48 ducks, 4 guns and 2 glorious days in the timber Fri and Sat.
