  1. Seems to be pretty spotty if you felt it or not.
  2. It was pretty strong here. Lasted maybe 10 seconds. Actually had a picture come off the wall. Headed back to the coast today to prepare for the locust. I read on Facebook that they mated with the murder hornets so....... I'll be back in mid September. Ya'll take care of the mountains the best you can. No telling what you might run in to this year.
  3. Came back home for a few days. We don't do tropical. Got in late last night and woke thinking I was in Hawaii. I don't remember the last time I've seen things so lush the first of Aug. Rained about all day and had a high of 69. I loved it. The past few of weeks on the coast have been brutal.
  4. Just letting everyone know I survived tropical Storm Arthur. I actually had to go indoors for a few hours and it stinks in there. #cooperreleasethehousekeepers ! Hope you guys don't wash away. Someone is going to get some ridiculous totals by Thursday. My gauge back home is already at 1.89.
  5. You guys must be rocking up there. My station back home has had three gusts in the mid to upper 50's in the last hour.
  6. Congrats! I had a high of 61 and a little rain this morning. I'm on the coast to ride this crap out. It's really eerie here though without many people. I've never seen it like this. As some know, my wife is a MD and she made me come to this house because she was afraid that she would bring it home to us. Worried about the ole' girl. Be safe mountain folk and hope you have great spring and summer weather. We deserve a hell of a winter next year!
  7. The accumulating snow is over, just left with flurries now. Looks to be a couple of inches. Cold, 21.4 with a stiff breeze. Was that our last shot? Could be. All I know is thank God daylight saving time is back.
  8. Nice shower now with moderate/heavy snow. Things are turning white quickly. Temps holding steady around 26. Winds are starting to kick up too. Had a gust to 33 a few minutes ago.
  9. Heavy dusting here as well. Temps are holding steady in the mid to upper 20's. Radar looks pretty juicy upstream.
  10. There are fish bigger than trout stuck between the teeth of the ones I catch. Two words my people; salt and water. Although I do love a smoked trout sandwich. Been a beautiful evening. Decent chill in the air, calm wind. Nice moon.
  11. Rain. And more rain. Woke to thunder this morning and it has been pouring ever since. Almost an inch already. I'm sick of rain.
  12. Had right at 4 inches for the two waves. Good to see but as BH pointed out we very well might go the entire season without a snowfall of more than a few inches at a time. Even in the mountains time is running out. Maybe we can get one those March paste jobs that drops 12 inches of Appalachian applesauce on us. Love those types of storms.
  13. That was a good band that came through. I just measure 2 1/2 inches for a total today. Maybe add some more tonight. Temp is 23.1.
  14. They're not kidding. It just started to hammer down here. Over an inch and counting. Special Weather Statement National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC 537 PM EST Fri Feb 28 2020 NCZ033-048>050-052-053-290000- Buncombe NC-Haywood NC-Yancey NC-Madison NC-Mitchell NC-Avery NC- 537 PM EST Fri Feb 28 2020 ...AN AREA OF HEAVY SNOW WILL IMPACT MADISON...MITCHELL...AVERY...
