  1. Is there a better place to check for rainfall totals for my zip code? Weather underground says 1.80” for the last 24 hours and I find that hard to believe. The pasture in front of my house next to the Dan is flooded and many roads and low areas are flooded between Eden and Martinsville. The Smith and the Dan are both running very high.
  2. The band went north of me but we still had winds that were very strong. It’s still very windy.
  3. That warned cell is headed towards me, fingers crossed it weakens.
  4. Not weather related but a topic for the mountain peeps. We have a bear that’s been showing up at our house outside Boone. We’ve been there 10 years and have never seen a bear until this July 4th and 6th. This morning a bear showed up and entered an unlocked car and helped itself to the person’s lunch. We never leave food or trash outside nor do we have bird feeders. I don’t mind the bear being in the area but I’m not thrilled that it might associate our house with food now. Any thoughts on how to coexist? I’m afraid to send the dog out unless someone goes out with the dog.
  5. Is Blacksburg unable to update for some reason? The HWO hasn’t changed since 6:03 AM today and it didn’t update yesterday or maybe the day before more than almost 12 hours. I thought it usually had 2 updates in a 24 hour period.
  6. Still snowing and it’s windy so it’s blowing the snow around. I would have thought there would be more on the ground.
  7. The rate is not as heavy now and I can see across the valley to Howard’s Knob. It’s looks like it is snowing more over that way.
  8. Was getting ready to say it took no time for the flurries to become good sized flakes while I was at Ingles on 105. Poplar Grove Road is becoming covered.
  9. Just cleared the continental divide on 421 and flurries were waiting on the other side. Literally nothing falling on the Wilkesboro side and as we went under the parkway you could see the flurries flying.
  10. Camera showing good rate of snow off of Russ Cornet above The Cottages and near Poplar Grove.
  11. Nice size flakes coming down now and temp is down to 39.
  12. Just started snowing (flurries) here in Eden Tiny flakes Car thermometer says 42 The plows/salt trucks that are parked off of 14 as you come into town are ready to head out
  13. It’s flurrying in ridgeway, va atm pretty to see
  14. Check out dog boots on amazon. I’ve used them since fall of 2018 and they have saved my rugs and no more wiping wet paws. Walkee Paws waterproof dog leggings. They look ridiculous but they stay on and work great as long as you put them on correctly. And a bonus is fun to watch your dog walk in them. And now, back to the weather...
