    General Severe Weather

    Next one is on its way, I’ve just missed the bad leading edge last night and this morning where I am working in Indiana. Same areas taking a beating 12 hours apart and they didn’t need any more heavy rain up here with the local flooding.
  2. That line just skirted to the south of where I am in Indiana working, it has looked nasty in radar all evening. Hate being out of town when something damaging could happen because I know I’ll get a frantic phone call from home that I can do nothing about. Stay safe fellas!
  3. I agree with you, look at the drought monitor and that tells the tale when it comes to needing rain IMO. Eastern side of the state, sure. Us? Nope.
  4. Nothing beats fishing mountain rivers and streams. I’ve been having good luck on Fontana past couple times I’ve been out there. Think I’ll check out some of the other lakes this week while I’m home and off work.
  5. Wife sent a video of the snow at our house, so it’s made it down to 3350’.
  6. Radar seems to backup what I’m seeing of the heavy rain having moved past down here but you are right, that wind is no joke. Even in my protected spot it is howling.
  7. Rain switched to sleet and now snow fairly quick here in Valdese where I’m working. Surprised by it.
  8. Deck is wet and I can see a few sleet pellets laying on it, that’s about it here.
  9. When I left the house it was like a real light powdered sugar falling from the sky lol. A few hundred feet down from the gap and could barely see some snow on rooftops. Elevation is a good thing!
  10. Yep, looks to be the same amount here as well. Just some flurries right now though.
  11. Drove back from Maggie Valley on the Parkway this morning, pulled in at Waterrock Knob and was treated to strong winds forcing moisture up the the southern side of the mountain and creating a cloud right before our eyes. That was an awesome scene seeing a weather principle at work in person. Might have to make a drive up there in the morning before I head to Wilkesboro for work to see if winter is able to make a return at 5000’+ feet overnight. Hoping to get lucky and see a few wet flakes down the mountain if the forecast still holds for tonight, if not maybe I’ll luck out and catch a few Tuesday in Wilkes.
  12. We have a great winter view of the mountain across 74 from us (sunrise this morning was amazing to wake up to - lots of windows on the main upper level) but otherwise we are in the trees tucked in a little cove on the side of the mountain. Can’t wait to check out the views on the parkway above the house.
  13. Can hear the wind howling outside and rain is back, really need it to stop and sun to come out so my fence contractor can finish my split rail out front.

    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!
  15. 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!)
