  1. Looks like 1/2” on my deck railing with light snow falling. Already surpassed my expectations.
  2. Gotcha, we looked at a home off Old Fiddle up there but settled on a log home in the neighborhood before the parkway. Love our area! Solid dusting now for me, feel Confident I can eek out an inch or two.
  3. Basically what it looks like down below you neighbor, maybe a little less. Are you off Walker Road?
  4. I need to come hunt at Buckethead’s tomorrow I see lol. Vehicles, deck and trees are starting to whiten up ever so slowly.
  5. The Plotts are getting snow covered up above 4000’, flizzard down here at 3350’. Last day of November and flakes (no matter how small) are flying, I love living in the mountains.
  6. Off and on flurrie/sprinkle mix since I posted earlier. Typical for me though being on the south base of Lynn Lowry. Oh and they’ve had the parkway closed since this morning here.
  7. Moisture is in the air, flakes mixing in here at home at 35 with plain rain and 40 down in hazelwood.
  8. Upper 30’s at my place, low 40’s in town. Lynn Lowry and Plott Balsam are covered in clouds, just looks and feels like a winter day with snow on the horizon.
  9. We will see what happens at 3300’ like Maggie said, though he’s in a better spot to get some flow snow than me I think. Family emergency means I’ll be home for the events this week though it’s hard to get too excited about the possibilities with what’s going on. 2020 is just ugh.
  10. I kept trying the wrong password and was too lazy to reset it lol. I’m just glad we’ve had a couple days of November weather, makes me not sweat as much when I’m walking around the woods.
  11. Been MIA because I forgot my login info. Y’all book it on a storm next week, I leave on the 30th and won’t get home from working in Louisiana until late the 7th. Was mid-20’s when I left the house at 5 this morning, right around 30 over in Mt Sterling when I got off the interstate. Probably ended up high 20’s over where I’m hunting, frosty morning that felt good. No deer were harmed though I did have one give me the slip,
  12. I don’t think we dropped down in the 20’s at all this cold snap, no frost either that I saw and I know we hit at least 32 (probably lower) a couple different nights. Sheltered in the trees and a slight breeze helped on both accounts I think. Plus it seemed there was a bit of an inversion some we were in between the valley and top of the ridge line.
  13. Shetley shakes his fists in anger at you
  14. No frost here on our wooded place when I left around 7ish, just dew, but looked like a light frost once I got down just a little lower in elevation and I the more open areas at the orchard and rest area on 74. Think we bottomed out around 35, I really need a weather station vs looking readings on the closest one on wundeground. Low 40’s now, would like to see some surprise mixing for my side of the Plotts and this elevation tomorrow night if possible just so I can say I’ve seen flakes fly in May with my own eyes.
  15. You can get above 5000’ on 276 and 215 as they crest the Great Balsams but not sure how they look for this weekend’s setup. If the parkway wasn’t closed you could get up above 6000’ above my house in the Plott Balsams as well as along the crest of the Great Balsams between my house and 276 and 215.
  16. I’ll probably trout fish for sure, but lake fishing for bass is off the table this weekend. I just think this cold-snap will have them shut down. Trout should be biting great though!
  17. Upper 30’s here, mid to upper-20’s up above us around 6000’. Gonna be interesting to see how low we go this weekend, ruined my bass fishing plans. They are gonna be so confused
  18. Got pounded by hail in south of Brevard earlier when those storms rolled through.
  19. I was on Santeetlah today and lost what would have been a new personal best smallie. Otherwise it kicked my butt outside of a few small largemouth I caught. For a river kayak, can’t go wrong with a Jackson Coosa or Native Slayer XC but they are both over $1k. Usually can find used Coosa’s for a decent price. All depends on what your budget is. I’ve had a Wilderness Systems Tarpon 100 and Jackson Kilroy. Both good , all-around kayaks when it came to different water types. My next one is gonna be a Slayer XC since I’ll be fishing moving water in it more than anything else up here.
  20. I’m not sure we broke 50 here today, maybe around 12 while the sun was out but it’s been windy and raw all day. Definitely doesn’t feel like late April!
  21. Windy from the outflow, it’s just skirting us. Looking up towards the top of the mountain it is DARK.
  22. This weather was the past week or two has been killing me and looks to continue through next week. Like you’ve said before, needed this pattern in January!
  23. Awesome shot, I need to take some night time pics, got a great spot for it where I camped last week. Have to wait for them to reopen the Parkway or hike in like 3 miles uphill the whole way instead of a mile slightly downhill.
  24. Coworkers neighborhood in Seneca
  25. Had heavy rain from probably 8 pm to 5 am, lots of lightning at times. Winds at our house weren’t as bad as I was prepared for, working down here around Franklin and both rivers are out of their banks in spots and have seen some trees down. Co-worker down in SC got brushed by the Seneca tornado, they have some damage but nothing like in town he said.
