  1. I agree. I think the last few years have shifted the bar a little. We forget what a nice leaf out is. This year isn't one.
  2. Around here I think we are in trouble. Lots of brown patches and some trees are just shedding before any color. Last year was pretty horrible compared to the norm. We'll wait and see but just don't believe they're going to be all that pretty this year. Never seen a "delayed" peak season that was great. But as usual, there will be some areas that will have good color. If anyone is planning a trip up should get the local scoop from where they'll be.
  3. High of 62 today with a touch of breeze. Signs of things to come. Looks like we've still got some heat to get through though.
  4. Moved back to the hills from Salter Path yesterday because of ANOTHER hurricane. Lost the pool, gazebo, and boardwalk and steps to the beach last year. Just had all those things rebuilt this spring. Picked up our return permits before we left yesterday so I'll be going back next week. Hopefully, they won't be required. We better have a killer winter this year to make up for it.
  5. Going to be hot here in Salter Path as well. That's why I had them put in an ocean out back. Pricey, but worth it when it heats up. My station in Yancey Co. says it's 66.9. Can that be right?
  6. This storm has been far less impressive than I thought it was going to be. Mountains chewed it up. Only .19 inches of rain and a little breezy and that's it. Maybe some redevelopment later? I want to hear some noise.
  7. We got lucky being under that single band for a couple of hours. I ended up with right at 3 inches.
  8. Same here. Very pretty snow. Not much wind yet. Reminds me of winter!
  9. Zero percent chance of rain today. It's raining. I'm so sick of rain.
  10. Had a half inch overnight and another half with a burst around mid-morning. A slow rise in temps today to a high right now of 36.2. I only need another half to reach 40 for the year. The big storm coming the first week of April should put me over 50.
  11. I agree. But... there's another one coming in a little while. If we knew how they were going turn out it would really suck. I hope we never know for sure.
  12. WWA issued for us up this way. At least it's a little something. ...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO 1 PM EST FRIDAY... * WHAT...Mixed precipitation expected.
