2019/2020 Mountains and Foothills Fall/Winter Thread.

Recommended Posts

I want to apologize for the last two winters. I think I jinxed our chances last December during the big one. I joked with people after the storm that we had received enough snow for two years. Welp - super ironic now.

This is the most depressing winter I have ever experienced, especially after living in VT for a number of years. Still holding at a trace on the year. The worst will be the long wait until next year.

Reminds me of early June this past year. Ugly isn't the word for it. It's been a torrential downpour in my area since 2-3 a.m. There hasn't been a single moment where I'd say the rain has been "light" since that point.

3k NAM with a nice band of snow moving through NE GA up into NC on Saturday.

I've gone through the 3k nam run 7 times now and I sear that band completely skips Watauga and Ashe but snows around those counties lol

Yeah. Seems about right. Somebody stole a snow shield and put it up in Boone evidently.

 

Never in my life have I been so disappointed with a season. At least living down in GA I knew not to expect anything. Up here though?

Sucks for the ski resorts.  They had such good conditions last weekend.  They can deal with warm but 5 inches of rain is tough.   

Yeah.  Drove by Sapphire Valley yesterday on a tour of local waterfalls.  It was rather pathetic-looking.  There may not be any snow left at all after today's torrents.

Dry falls on the Cullasaja River was rip-rouring, though:

Well, it's calm for now.

Edit* Radar currently says it's pouring in Boone. It's not raining a drop as of 3 minutes ago. For the first time since 10pm

Had about a 15 minute lull and now it’s pouring again the band coming out of Dahlonega concerns me because with a more northerly component it could train for a while.
