    We have a potent little hailstorm here in Wolf right now, our 2nd round of storms so far today.

    Looking Ahead to Fall and Winter

    I'm still learning which patterns work out the best for me in the high country. Honestly, all those years of living in Columbia have me excited if I see half a foot for the year.

    July 2019 OBS

    Currently at 53.3°/53 with overcast skies and a nice northerly wind. You can't beat that for July in the south.

    Summer sure is great in the high country. This was on Big Bald last night.

    Tn Valley Severe Weather 2018-19

    Caught this hail shaft or downburst over Erwin, TN around 530 today. Looked like a hailcore on radar at that time.

    I drove up on Big Bald and caught this downburst or hail core as it passed over Erwin, TN about 30 minutes ago. Looked like a hailcore on radar at the time. It was 55° up there and the wind was blowing 20-30. Felt great!
  9. You have no idea just how grateful I am to live here. It's nothing like Central SC. This was Tuesday, looking South towards Asheville. The Black Mountains and Mitchell are in the distance on the left.

    It's been raining steadily here in Wolf for the past three hours. Just under 2.5" so far.
  12. A few shots I've taken hiking around my neighborhood this week.

    I'm loving this weather, but some rain would be nice. I'm hoping these showers back to the west of us deliver later this evening.
  14. About to head to the North Toe and try to catch my limit of these again. Perfect weather in the high country today.

    General Severe Weather

    Brad P. posted about the hurricane hunters flying through the Oklahoma storms this evening. At 6,000'. That crew has some serious cajones.

    I love the snow...but nothing beats a day like today. 70°, blue skies and the fish are going nuts.

    I'm looking forward to some great fishing weather tomorrow along the Cane, Toe and Nolichucky. I'm not looking forward to going to Columbia this weekend to put a lift kit on my Jeep though. Looks like mid 90's down there Saturday.

    And it's STILL raining. We had a break for about 90 minutes this afternoon...otherwise it's been raining pretty much all day.

    It's been almost nonstop all day up here. The fish are calling me, this needs to stop for a few days.

    Had to avoid some storms while out fishing this afternoon. Made a friend, too.

    I was born and raised south of Columbia, SC. The summer up here in Wolf is like mid to late March down there. I've reached 78° once at my house here. I love it!

    You'll love the summer time now. I should've left Columbia sooner.
