          update

          today we drove to Asheville and back .... when we got to where the detour signs have historically been placed during previous road blockages, none were to be seen .... during a conversation at a Cracker Barrel where we at lunch with a lady who had driven over from Tennessee, I was told that I-40 has been reopened for both east and west bound traffic .. :salute:

            a large rock slide on I-40 just east of the NC/Tenn state line has once again closed I40
            A rockslide on Interstate 40 near the Tennessee line Friday night has closed traffic in both directions indefinitely between exit 7 and exit 20.

              I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was going to blame you.
              It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
              The things that come to those that wait will be the scraggly crappy junk left by those that got there first.

                The picture posted above is not of the rock slide that happened Friday night. That picture is from a few years back when the road was shut down for months to clear. Here is a link https://www.foxcarolina.com/news/ncd...ec6725d49.html with a picture of the new slide. Saying roughly a week to fix. Alot depends on how much more rain is received tonight and if more washes down.
