    Officially a resident of Haywood County. Always said I’d have a log home in the mountains one day and am proud to say I’m a log homeowner at 3350’ now, hard work still gets you what you want!
  2. Thanks, We will have help tomorrow and it’s not too far from driveway to door, so shouldn’t be too bad (knock on wood!)
  3. Of course I get to move in to the new house in rain this weekend . Going to try to get most furniture in today after we close at lunch so all it is Saturday and Sunday is mainly boxes
  4. Yea, they are in a prime location for that. Canton was getting it pretty good on my way up around 11:15. There was still a solid dusting in the sheltered areas when I entered the “neighborhood” around 12 but our future lot and house has a strong southern exposure so most of what had fallen earlier had melted up there. Looking forward to providing obs from there.
  5. Just left from doing an inspection of the house I’m buying over at Balsam Gap, sun is out in full force on that side of Haywood but the closer I got to 40 the more you could see the snow showers are banked up on that side of the county. Fines Creek looks like it’s getting hit pretty good from what I can tell.
  6. We are under contract on a house on the north side of 74 right before the Parkway, elevation is a touch under 3400’. Figured we’d be limited on flow snow in that location, had looked at some houses on the other side of the mountain around Maggie but this one met all our needs. Thanks for giving me some info!
  7. So as a hopeful soon to be resident of Haywood County, can you guys give me an idea of the local climatology of the Balsam Gap area?
  8. Headed up to look at houses around Waynesville and Maggie Valley, hit good glaze on trees between Stanley and Lincolnton then slack on glaze until we got closer to 40 on 321. “Good” amount of ice on trees and what looked to even be some on ground basically when we got to Rutherford College. Will be an interesting day, checking our houses ranging from 2900’ up near Waterville Lake to 3600’ at the base of Cold Mountain and 4000’ up above Balsam on the county line. Looking forward to being able to participate in this thread as a resident in the near future.

    Is it bad I am taking into account elevation and winter weather prospects when we head to look at houses in Haywood County tomorrow? I didn’t think so either...

    December 8-10 Winter Storm Obs

    This morning's spurt of snow didn't add to any totals here from what I could tell. Airport reported 4" but here NNW of it I measured 2" of compacted slop on the truck bed yesterday afternoon after precip had pretty much stopped, so I'd say if going by actual snow board procedures it was around 2.5-3" storm accumulation, mostly sleet after the initial hour or so of heavy snow once changeover occured.

    2” of compacted slop now here on the NW side of Charlotte. Sleet/freezing rain mix now, mainly sleet.

    Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    I’ve fared a little better here NW of town but have had higher totals all around me since building over here 7 years ago. Always something whether anemic rates, tiny flake size, sleet, etc. Kills me as growing up in northern Catawba County always put me on the good size of these kind of storms. Wife wants to move back home to somewhere around Asheville so hopefully this time next year I’ll be posting from 3000+ feet.

    Just like I thought, about 1” of compacted snow and sleet here across the river from Mt Holly. Congrats to the Raleigh crowd, just means next storm is Charlotte’s to score lol.

    Sleeting hard, gonna take the dog on a jeb walk. When the warm nose gives you sleet you make lemonade lol. Maybe 1” snow/sleet from eyeballing?

    Yep, laying here trying to go to bed and it just started hitting the wind on that NE wind. 4-5” of slop again incoming I’m sure, maybe backside on Monday will drop a couple inches of fluffiness. Although part of me thinks it’s rate driven just like earlier tonight for me...
