  1. Truck thermometer says 11 degrees. Had a trace of snow on the deck and vehicles, flurries stuck once the sun went down it seems. Inversion up high like Buckethead has, low 20’s up on Lynn Lowry.
  2. No clue on temp down here at the base but local station up on Mt Lynn Lowry (6000’+) was already showing 8 degrees about 30 minutes ago so upper teens down here for sure with flurries continuing to fly like they have all day after the front passed. We are gonna give 10 degrees a run for the money in the morning I feel like.
  3. So close to a decent little event, flow snow ends just up the mountain from our neighborhood’s little knob we sit tucked in against.
  4. We live on a south facing slope so the sun is out and the occasional flurry is falling. Can see the clouds streaming in above us and I can see it snowing on Beef Market Top across 74 from us, so maybe we can get in a snow shower or two.
  5. Light sleet and snow, glaze of mainly sleet on the ground for my area, we will see if we can get some flow snow later but we aren’t situated in a good orientation for it. Once you drop down to 3000’ and below on 74 way less of a sleet glaze (only in roofs and vehicles) and it’s back to mainly sleet/rain it seems. Edit: I said that and now have snow in Hazelwood with a dusting on the ground.
  6. The good part about my place is all I gotta do is get out of the neighborhood and I’m on 74. Headed out to take the trash to the convenience center and run some errands, we will see how it is in town.
  7. Pretty much all sleet now here at Balsam Gap. And just like that flakes are staring to mix in.
  8. Rain here at my house, sounds like some sleet mixing in. Probably snowing up above my house once you hit 4000’ though since Joe and Moto have switched over.
  9. Cataloochee already opened but they are always first. Sugar is looking to open by Thanksgiving I believe my brother-in-law said (he works there)
  10. As a hunter, I’m all for front end cold since it just makes it much more enjoyable. By mid-February I’ve got fishing and golf on the mind.
  11. Can we please get this much moisture with temps in the 20’s? Radar estimate says we are approaching 4” storm total here, bet we end up with 5-6” when it’s all said and done looking at the downstream stuff. Met, you’ll have to be the Haywood County eyes for any flakes mixing in tonight since I’m headed to the Upstate to hunt the next two days.
  12. Nearing peak color here near 3400’ at Balsam Gap, only hold outs seem to be a few oaks, beeches and wild cherries. Poplars have changed and are all about bare now, hickory’s are a brilliant yellow and dropping leaves more and more, maples are a blaze of yellows, oranges and reds. Keep trying to upload a picture of the view from the living room through the trees with no luck.
  13. Regarding my area, we were the last part to be put in drought conditions according to the US drought monitor and we are only at Abnormally Dry. It’s just been weeks behind when I thought leaves would be changing. We did have some brown out on some trees early but it was a noticeable difference between when I left 10/9 and yesterday. Lots of yellows and now oranges starting to show up. Beef Market Top has full coverage up high of yellow and orange colors, reds are lacking so far from what I’ve seen (Cumberland plateau north of Knoxville has plenty though as I just drove it earlier).
  14. Color is starting to look great here in the Balsams, came back from Colorado to leaves really starting to show yellowish and orange tints here in the neighborhood and you can tell on the mountain across 74 that things are in full force heading towards peak color as you get up past 4500'. I bet when I get back from Ohio Halloween week I'll have missed peak here.
